The Icelandic Tourist Board and Business Iceland, with support from the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Innovation, have been working on the restoration of in recent months. The website was introduced in connection with the Vestnorden travel conference that took place in Reykjanes this week. The site's content has been reorganized considerably, and information to tourists has been greatly improved, with increased material. The collaborative project on renewing the website is for three years, and the opening of the new page is just the beginning of that process. Continuous changes and improvements to the website may be expected in the coming years.

Changes on the web

Among the changes on the web is a newly added carbon calculator that enables tourists to calculate the carbon footprint in connection with the trip to Iceland and then to equalize their carbon footprint using the assistance of companies that specialize in it. The newly added feature can be seen, by clicking here. In addition, visitor numbers of popular tourist sites can be seen, making it easier for tourists to plan their trip and distribute visits better. It enhances the sustainability of destinations and improves the overall tourist experience. The visitor numbers can be seen here.

To support the project, the Icelandic Tourist Board hired four individuals to work in content creation, all over the country in jobs without a location. They will continue to build and improve the web in collaboration with other stakeholders. Articles from the web can be read below:
