It all started in Hamburg, with the founding of Island ProTravel by Gudmundur Kjartansson and Ann-Cathrin Bröcker, who teamed to establish a specialized tour operator for trips to Iceland and Greenland.
The Swiss team with Adalsteinn Hjartarson as managing director joined Island ProTravel one year after the company's founding. Its office is based in Wetzikon.
All companies of the Iceland ProTravel Group are now part of the established IPT Holding.
IPT extended its locations further, with the opening of an office based in the United Kingdom, to manage the high demand of British travelers appropriately.
The IPT group had reason to celebrate two exciting new openings in one year, with offices in Reykjavik and Stockholm. From now on we can serve incoming guests directly in our destination coutnry.
A Danish team joins the Island ProTravel Group in Copenhagen, to expand the Scandinavian market and offices.

If you book with any company of the Iceland ProTravel Group, you are making reservations with a local business registered in your own country, where the laws and regulations of this country apply. In case of problems, it is of course much easier to take care of your case instead of contacting companies abroad, where maybe other laws and regulations may apply.
The Iceland ProTravel Group is staffed with Icelanders and international travel experts who have excellent knowledge about Iceland, Scandinavia and Greenland, and vast experience in selling these unique destinations. By booking with us, you can be sure you are getting the best quality and value for your money.
We have the obligatory local money guarantee insurance (e.g. ATOL in the UK, Reisepreis-Sicherungsschein in Germany), which secures your money in case we or any of our service providers go bankrupt. Please note that when you book individual services directly on the web, you may not have a guarantee in case of bankruptcy.
