FJADRÁRGLJÚFUR, Iceland (AP) — With one magical video, Justin Bieber has made a pristine Icelandic canyon famous around the world. And that's the problem.
Icelandic environmental officials have had to close off the Fjadrárgljúfur canyon to protect it from the hordes of Bieber fans who are determined to visit the site. And these fans are not letting a few fences, signs or park rangers keep them away.
It's just one example of the challenges to Iceland's fragile environment poised by its growing popularity with international visitors.
