Mountain challenge

Along forgotten trails

For three days, you will be exploring beautiful forgotten trails in the outback of Skagafjörður. Just like Icelanders, we ride with accompanying handhorse and climb up and down narrow valleys and canyons, cross a river countless times and enjoy smooth tölt on grassy paths. During this adventurous challenge, your horses will carry you off into barely touched nature, away from civilization.
At night, you will stay in one of our lovely Hestasport timber cottages and are welcome to enjoy a relaxing bath in the natural hot pot after a long day in the saddle.
