So, this journey has been nothing short of eye-opening. Experiencing Iceland as a visitor gave myself a foundation for evaluating the country as a destination, not only for tourism, but also for events.
A post-trip reflection on the country in terms of its visitors, its industries, its environment and its communities has assisted myself with making the assumption that Iceland is a pretty impressive destination, with huge potential for the future. For areas such as sustainability where they are arguably way ahead of the rest, they are lacking in others, such as their under-developed events industry. But one can only hope that the financial investment and positive flow of income in which they are receiving, will be invested sensibly to develop the country’s offerings even further.
I will definitely plan to revisit Iceland again in the future and will be keen to observe the progress that they have made. But for now, thank you Iceland for allowing an insight into your culture, your nature and your people. A truly unforgettable experience.
