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
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
