Iceland’s cool credentials

THIS delegation of senior tourism officials from Iceland visited Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for a series of trade events last month, as part of the first official Promote Iceland mission to Australia.

The visit reflects strong growth in arrivals, with Iceland room nights by Aussies almost quadrupling to 49,852 over the last four years.
