Eyvindarstašaheiši Ride

Breath of the Highland

This vibrant riding tour with a herd of free-running horses commences in the beautiful Skagafjöršur, the heart of horse breeding in Iceland. We will embark on a trail leading through the wilderness of the Icelandic highlands, where the stunning sight of the glaciers Hofsjökull and Langjökull will emerge as we go further. The scenic canyon Gilhagadalur, the remote highlands hut Galtarį and the beautiful Svartįdalur valley are only few of the highlights of this tour.
