Off we go

Small groups – personal service 

Spending a whole day travelling on horseback is truly Icelandic! In the beginning of the trip, you will be introduced to your two best friends for the day: your horses. While riding one of them, you will lead the other horse beside you and later on change. Our guides will explain to you how to do that comfortably. Riding Icelandic style with a "handhorse" is certainly a unique and wonderful experience. During the ride you will follow the Húseyjarkvísl stream and explore the glacial river delta Hérađsvötn, where you will see a wide variety of birds during the season. You will be enjoying the impressive panorama of the Skagafjörđur mountains, while tölting on nice and comfortable riding paths.
