With a name translating to ‘behind the mountains’, it is no surprise that Fjallabak is nestled among towering hillsides in a remote region in the central highlands of Iceland. It’s like a hidden gem waiting to be explored by intrepid explorers. The area is brimming with rugged terrain, volcanic craters, colourful mountains and glacial rivers, making it a dream come true for adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts. The Laugavegur is a stand-out trail in the Fjallabak area, winding through the highlands and offering spectacular views of glistening glaciers and steaming hot springs. Iceland being Iceland,
the area boasts several other natural attractions, including the Landmannalaugur geothermal area with its collection of bubbling hot springs and colourful rhyolite mountains. Fjallabak is also home to Mount Hekla, one of Iceland’s most active volcanoes, as well as Þórsmörk, a nature reserve known for its diverse flora and fauna. Exploring on foot is the ultimate way for hikers to immerse themselves in the stunning scenery, but if you are looking for an adrenaline-fuelled excursion, hop aboard a helicopter to experience the raw power of nature like its winged residents. Fjallabak is brimming with adventure just waiting to be explored.
