A large increase in tourist numbers has not altered the generally positive view of Greater Reykjavik residents towards them, according to a survey conducted by market research company Maskína.

Figures from the Icelandic Tourist Board show that tourists numbers in Iceland in the first four months of 2016 are 35% up on the same period last year.

Despite this huge increase, only one in twenty residents in the Greater Reykjavik area view tourists as negative in any way.

Some key figures from the survey:


Partly cloudy
