Páll Zophanias Pálsson

Palli one of Fjallabak Trekking's guides in Iceland

When I was 14 years old I went on a hike with Fjallabak. It opened my eyes to a new relm of adventure. Since then I have always wanted to work for them. The path to realize that dream was long and a strange one, but it was worth it. Now a new chapter begins and hopefully you will be a part of that.
