Some tourist destinations in Iceland have reached their tolerance limit
According to a new report presented to Parliament by Minister for Tourism, Industry and Innovation Þórdís Kolbrún Gylfadóttir, some of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland have long reached their tolerance limit for tourists and are now in grave danger. The report identifies various reasons for the decline of natural resources, but the most prominent seem to be a lack of infrastructure as well as proper monitoring and custody of the areas in question. Besides assessing the conditions of local nature, the report also attempts to find ways to minimise and prevent further damage, as well as to insure good travelling experiences for tourists.
