FAB Travel

FAB Travel was founded in 2004 under the name Sport Bus. In the spring of  2010 we changed the name to FAB Travel – Free as A Bird! since that seemed to capture the spirit of the guests on our tours. We continually strive to provide the best service available to all our guests. We offer short and long tours all over Iceland as well as daytours from Reykjavík and Akureyri.

FAB Travel was started by a cohesive family that has worked together assisting our guests in experiencing Iceland as a destination of their choice.

We are a fully licenced tour agency and tour operator. In our operations we serve our guests with scheduled day tours and as tour planners, providing full tour service for private tours and groups of all sizes.

Our day to day operations aim at providing our guests with opportunities to experience Iceland, its nature, geology, people and history. Also to enjoy their stay, and enable them with quality service, to create and bring back warm memories after the visit to our beloved country.

The team at FAB Travel  is known for providing personal service and we aim to have all our guests experiencing our hospitality.

Íshestar

ÍSHESTAR’S SAGA

Íshestar Riding Tours was founded in 1982 by three families. One of the founders is Einar Bollason who recently retired.

In 1992 and again in 1998 the company opened up for others to become shareholders. Several Icelandic travel agencies invested in the company and the construction of the Íshestar Stables in Hafnarfjörður began.

During the first years of operation, Íshestar offered mainly riding tours of 1 to 2 hours from Miðdalur Farm at Laugarvatn, summer residence of the founders. In 1983 a ride along the highland trail Kjölur was operated for the first time, one year later the Golden Circle Tour was added. From 1990 new routes were added to the program and new farmers were made partners after operating as affiliates for a while. Today Íshestar offers riding holidays from all corners of the country and many of our partners have been with the company for more than 20 years.

Íshestar Stables in Hafnafjörður were opened in the year 2000 and enables Íshestar to operate a variety of day tours, training, and riding lessons both for experienced and for less experienced riders, all year long.

Iceland Rovers

A Legacy of Innovation, Passion & Professionalism
Over the last 20 years we have used our expert knowledge, passion for nature and pioneering spirit to create innovative activities in Iceland for travelers.

The 6th of January in 1996, the last day of Christmas in Iceland, was a fateful day for what will later become Iceland Rovers. At Sveinatunga Farm a chat between Villa, Bassi, Einar Torfi and Ingibjörg sparked the idea for the company. Later that month, Iceland Rovers was born and the idea was to focus on providing Incentive tours in comfy, modified Land Rover Defenders (also called Super Jeeps in Iceland). We were the first company in the travel industry to use modified Defenders. Because the concept was so new, we had to bring in an expert mechanic, Snorri, and an electrician, Ingimundur, to make proper adjustments to the cars.

January proved to be a month of growth for the company because Laufey, Árni, Sigrún and Niels joined the team, along with Snorri and Ingimundur. Defenders are quite costly to buy in Iceland, so the team approached B&L car dealership with a clever idea. For a discount on Defenders, they offered to help promote the concept of using a modified Defender as a vehicle for taking travelers on tours in Iceland. With 6 new Defenders and extra parts, the team got to work on making the modifications. As summer inched closer, Iceland Rovers gained sponsorship from companies like B&L, Bræðurnir Ormsson, Aukaraf and others in exchange for advertising. In June of 1996, the first modified Land Rover Defender was ready. Iceland Rovers became a registered travel agency that fall and Ingibjörg was the first official employee. The headquarters shared a space with Icelandic Mountain Guides, Bátafólkið and Langjökull. Iceland Rovers ran promotional trips throughout the fall in the new Defenders.

Adventurous, fun and safe tours were our aim, and we were successful in incorporating playful team exercises and challenges inside and outside of the Defenders.

Throughout the years, our most common tours were incentive trips to Landmannalaugar, Þórsmörk, and the mountains around Reykjavík.

We opened up new avendures for travelers, like lava cave tours, hunting for the Northern Lights & lobster tours, sleeping in snow houses, abseiling, snow gliding with style, become a viking for a day and team building games.

After more than a decade of collaborating with Icelandic Mountain Guides on different projects and operating in similar areas, the companies merged in 2007. During the last 10 years, Iceland Rovers has evolved from a Land Rover Defender (Super Jeep) company to an expert in comfort travel, no matter the vehicle. Super Jeeps are still a part of our legacy and we offer those types of tours, but our wider selection allows for us to meet the needs of travelers who seek to venture beyond the beaten path. Our goal is to MAKE EVERY MOMENT AN EXPERIENCE that will lasts a lifetime.

Iceland Rovers is also the sister-company of Icelandic Mountain Guides, an Iceland tour company that specializes in hiking tours, glacier tours, backpacking and trekking tours, ice climbing & mountain climbing.

The Iceland Rovers team is a highly select group of specialists. We pride ourselves for not only providing a fun, adventurous and diverse Iceland tour experience but also a safe one. You are in good hands with Iceland Rovers.

Nonni Travel

Nonni Travel is established in 1988 by Helena Dejak. On 6th May 2016 new owners bought Nonni Travel. Ingi Þór Guðmundsson came into the company with the current employees and they will continue the good work as before based on the company’s firm foundations.

Serving roughly 3,000 clients annually, Nonni Travel has built up a reputation for reliability and personal service. The bureau now has a staff of seven employees and additionally employs professional guides depending on the demand. In Iceland we use guides who are fluent in different langugages such as English, French, German, Italian, Slovenian and the Scandinavian languages. Guides in the Faroe Islands are fluent in English and Danish as are most guides in Greenland. In the remote areas of Greenland the local hunters speak Danish and even some English.

Iceland is an exotic destination in its own right, but also enjoys the geographical advantage of being half way between the Faroe islands and Greenland. The three countries have a very different climate, geology and culture. It might be said that the cultures of East and West met for the first time ca 1000 A.D. in Greenland, when the Norse settlers met the Thule Eskimoes that had also just arrived all the way from Asia. Today only the Inuit or Greenlanders as they are called, survive, but remains of Norse farms and churches are still in evidence. As Icelanders, the Faroese are descendants of the Vikings and they have managed against all odds to preserve their cultural heritage. Combining either or both Greenland and the Faroe Islands with a visit to Iceland, will give a fuller experience and a deeper understanding of the cultures and nature in these outposts of the North Atlantic.

Tours and recreational acitivities will vary from half day excursions to longer trips. The summer season offers the best weather in all three counties. However, Nonni Travel encourages travel in the winter and in the „shoulder“ seasons, outside the most active summer season. Winter with its short daylight hours and sometimes stormy weather certainly has its charm. With some exceptions tours and activities in Iceland and the Faroe Islands can be conducted during all four seasons. Greenland’s extreme climate on the other hand results in a marked difference. Winter activities include dog sledge trips and ski-trecking, mostly in March, April and May, when the sun has returned and the weather is warmer. Summer activities, starting in June, include hiking and trekking, kayaking, boating and cruising expeditions.

Having thorough knowledge of the geography of the region and its infrastructure Nonni Travel has often been requested to take on other tasks not normally conducted by travel agencies namely Ship Handling and Logistical Services to expeditions.
* Well connected and mobile, the staff of Nonni Travel regularily handles cruise ships and research ships in ports all around Iceland. In many cases this has included excursions for passengers and crew.
* Our connections with local airlines and shiping companies and not least our knowledge of the infrastructure in Greenland has regularily led Nonni Travel to undertake logistical services for expeditions and scientific projects to East and North East Greenland.
