The Visitor's Guide Pocket Book was first published in 2000 as a small leaflet, but has now grown to a full size book. The book is now over 258 pages, including articles about Iceland and Icelandic society, good maps of Iceland, Reykjavík and Kópavogur as well as information and ads from Visitor's Guide's selected companies. Visitor's Guide is published in a handy pocket-size, which makes it easy to carry around when travelling and its information is thus always at hand. Some of the companies included in the Visitor's Guide book offer discounts and special offers that are listed on the last pages of the book. The material in the Visitor's Guide book was developed according to the results of surveys among employees in the tourist industry, as well as researches made by the Icelandic Tourist Board, and is aimed at meeting the needs and interests of travellers to Iceland. The guide is available with the information services at Keflavík airport and at hotels, guesthouses and information centres. It can also be viewed from this website, or downloaded.
Visitor's Guide Online was opened in 2001 under the name NETIÐ info, but was reopened on this site in August 2006. The information on the website reflects the contents of both the Information Folder and the Visitor's Guide books; many articles and recommended companies can be found both online and in the printed material. However, online material has much more options for interactivity and Visitor's Guide Online has many such feature, such as an online booking system, polls, a mailing list and an online order form for Visitor's Guide Pocket Book (available for hotels/guesthouses/information centres).
