Philippe Patay Pétursso



FJALLABAK*, is a fully licensed travel agency, owned and operated by Philippe Patay Pétursso and his family. Philippe is a member of the Guide Association of Iceland, a world traveler, a birdwatcher, a photographer and a mountaineer. His company was the first one to organize treks and ski expeditions in Iceland in the early 70’s. Fjallabak knows what  outdoor experience and hiking Iceland's mountains and fjords means. They are committed to operate the highest standard possible in the industry of outdoor touring in Iceland with guest safety and pleasure being the highest priority.

Fjallabak, the name of the company, means "Behind the Mountains". It is the name of a famous trail, which snakes its way through the desert landscape of the volcanic highlands between Mt. Hekla and the icecaps along the south coast. This vast and incredible territory remains mostly "unexplored" by classical tourism. The company specializes in high-quality supported trekking, backpacking, walking and land discoveries for small groups, ski treks and slow travel as nature tours are, such as birding, whale watching or geology... They also quote and organize trips for private groups and A la carte such as self drive and self guided tours. See ALL the trips being offered: Discover Fjallabak.
