The Icelandic delegation included representation from companies like Gray Line, Iceland Air, Iceland Europe Travel, Tripical, Gudmundur Jonasson Travel, Iceland Travel and Terra Nova Iceland.H.E Thorir Ibsen, Ambassador of Iceland to India added, “There has been an interest among Indians to visit Iceland after the picturisation of the song Gerua from the movie Dilwale in Iceland. The locales of Iceland were beautifully captured in that song which has caught the attention of tourists in India. We want to leverage on this interest and increase the number of tourist arrivals from India. We would also like to invite more Bollywood movies to come and shoot in Iceland.”Promote Iceland’s strategy is to target the premium travellers from India.
