Iceland's demise to unsustainable mass tourism?
« on: October 21, 2014, 09:59:40 AM »
Interesting article about Iceland's battle to retain sustainable tourism. In parts it comes across as a bit of a rant, but the issues are certainly real and well documented within the mass tourism sectors. Hopefully the issues highlighted don't relate to most school's experiences of how a trip to Iceland is undertaken, but nevertheless, it is a thought provoking piece full of geographical issues and a great example of why tourism needs to be responsible and sustainable, even in the developed world.
