Iceland hot spot for tourists
However, I must admit that I have never been to Iceland - nor have I ever really given it that much thought.
These days most people are likely to associate the country with economic troubles, but apparently it could be a hot spot (excuse the pun!) for those of us who enjoy backpacker travel.
ABTA - The Travel Association - in the UK has explained that the financial worries mean tourists benefit from a good exchange rate, which could be good news in terms of cheap travel and stays in hostels.
In fact, an Icelandic company - Eye for Image - has conducted some research suggesting that its problems have actually improved its image as a tourist destination
And with plenty of hostels available in Reykjavik and other major cities maybe it's time to check out what Iceland has to offer!
