Is it worth it, part II

Last week I wrote about that it will cost a fee to visit some of the more popular nature sites here in Iceland. According to a survey done by the news paper “Fréttablaðið” and the TV station “Stöð 2”, 70% of the Icelandic people support the fee. That’s a much higher number then I was expecting. The survey also showed that more men than women are for it.

I'm guessing Þingvellir will be one of the places that will have an admission fee.

I’m guessing beautiful Þingvellir will be one of the places that will have an admission fee.

The minister of tourism wants there to be a so called “nature pass”, which is a much better idea then to have to pay an admission at the “gates” of the selected destinations. This will all be decided before next summer. So if you’re a tourist you will have to remember to buy one of these nature passes before you go out exploring the Icelandic nature!
