Short riding tours

Small groups – personal service

Our short riding tours in the Skagafjörður area are ideal to get a first impression of the Icelandic horse. Meet this wonderful 5-gaited breed, try out its specialty, the tölt, and be inspired by its well-balanced character, compliance, strength and endurance!

Whether you are a first-time rider, a fanatical horse enthusiast or anything in between, we'll either have the right tour for you in our programme or create a customised experience suited to your individual needs and wishes. We offer short riding tours from one hour up to day tours. With experienced guides at your side, you might be crossing rivers, climbing up and down steep mountains, tölting over smooth fields or visit the scenic waterfall "Reykjafoss". There is no better way to explore the beautiful landscape of Skagafjörður than on horseback.

For bookings at short notice (departure in under 48 hours) please call us at (+354) 4538383.

If you are also looking for accommodation, we'll be happy to book you into one of our cozy cottages overlooking the magnificent plains and mountains of the Skagafjörður valley.
