The Icelandic Tourism Board also states that Iceland has to limit visitors and adjust the infrastructure in order to handle them all.

Visitors coming to Iceland have almost tripled since 2000, and every year there is an 8.2% increase in tourists coming to the country. This has been an issue for quite some time, and related parties are still trying to work out a viable solution for everyone involved.
