British tourists to Iceland outnumbered other nationalities of tourists last month by leaps and bounds, with only Americans coming close in terms of sheer numbers.
RÚV reports that British tourists numbered around 53,000 in October alone, marking an increase of almost 8,000 from October of last year.
According to figures from the Icelandic Tourist Board, about 700,000 tourists have visited Iceland since the beginning of this year. This is up by 110,000 tourists – an increase of about 19% – from 2012.
British tourists have increased by almost twice as much – by about 40%. Americans, who were the second most common tourists in October, have only increased by 25% from this time last year.
