Tourism in Iceland

Tourism has in recent years become one of the main pillars of the Icelandic economy. The Department of Tourism at the Ministry of Industries and Innovation is responsible for developing and executing an official tourism policy, proposing legislation in the field of tourism and co-ordinating the work of various governmental bodies with regard to tourism issues.

The Icelandic Tourist Board, the Tourist Site Protection Fund, The Route Development Fund and the Tourism Task Force are bodies that operate under the auspices of the Ministry. The Ministry also works in close co-operation with various other Ministries when it comes to matters that affect tourism.

The Ministry has several agreements with Promote Iceland regarding the promotion and marketing of Iceland in general and specifically as a tourism destination.
