Discover Why These New Luxury Hotels In Iceland Are Attracting Everyone From Beyonce and Jay Z To Bill Gates
Settled by the Vikings as early as 874 AD, Iceland has been known for providing glacier adventures and unparalleled scenery and views of the Northern Lights. But lately, things are changing and we are seeing an eruption of new luxury hotels in Iceland that are attracting the rich and famous from all around the world.
“The number of tourists has risen by as much as 30 percent every year for the last four years, according to Iceland’s Tourist Board. They brought in revenues of $3.2 billion in 2015, a third of the country’s export earnings. Tourism is the single biggest employer, and many Icelanders are pouring money into services and new construction.”
The reason is:
The recent surge in luxury tourism in Iceland has been attributed to 2 major events: First was the financial crisis in 2008, followed by the eruption of Eyijafijallojukull in 2010. While both events were devastating at the time, they put Iceland in the headlines and people started to take notice.
