The Saga Association said it would be co-operating with MNH on projects
Members of an Icelandic cultural group have praised the Isle of Man's tourism experts for the way they promote the island's Viking and Norse heritage.
The Saga Trail Association were on a week long visit organised by Manx National Heritage (MNH).
In recent years there have been a number of European visitors studying the MNH Story of Mann collection.
A spokesman for MNH said the island's heritage provided "strong opportunities" for collaboration.
Stephen Harrison, Director of MNH, said: "The Icelandic Saga Trail delegation were here to learn about the Isle of Man's heritage sites and study MNH's model for co-ordinated heritage management and promotion.
"The Island's heritage provides strong opportunities for international collaboration especially in relation to our connections with Celtic, Viking and maritime traditions."
The Saga Association was founded in May 2006, with the objective of providing a forum for collaboration for those involved in history and saga-related tourism in Iceland.
Saga Association member, Asborg Arnborsdottir, said: "We had a fantastic week in the Isle of Man and all agree that it was very educating and inspiring for us.
"We will bring home a lot of knowledge and ideas and we look forward to further cooperation and projects with Manx National Heritage."
