New Year’s Eve in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik is being streamed live via Inspired by Iceland’s website this year. The Iceland tourism campaign has a webcam over looking Reykjavik’s skyline so the whole world can join in the celebrations and enjoy the spectacular firework display.
In addition to the live New Year’s Eve celebrations, Inspired by Iceland is looking forward to a promising New Year after both Iceland and Reykjavik topped the polls for popular 2012 travel destinations.
The land of fire and ice topped the National Geographic Traveller Magazine’s list of the world’s best travel destinations for 2012. Iceland also finished top of the Lonely Planet’s annual “Best in Travel” list as the readers’ choice for the best destination in the world. Furthermore, Reykjavik was chosen as the most exciting city to visit in 2012.
Moreover, the campaign’s latest initiative, which was kick started by Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, the President of Iceland, has seen great success and will continue into 2012.
The new campaign is aimed at Icelanders opening their doors to visiting tourists in order to offer an exclusive glimpse at the Icelandic way of life. Numerous invitations have been sent out to the world online through the Inspired website so that people can plan their trip before travelling to the country.
