➧ More info
This tour with a duration of 6 riding days will take you across different mountains and plains and into valleys on the eastern edge of Snaefellsnes peninsula.
We follow old travel routes, which were only accessible on horseback in the old days. Today, only few people still use these tracks. In addition we get to enjoy the special experience of riding over black lava sand when we cross the bay behind Stóri-Kálfalaekur at low tide.
We travel according to Icelandic tradition, with regular stops to give horses and riders a good rest. Riding with a free-running herd allows for changing horses en-route and ensures that all horses can carry their riders through Iceland at brisk speed without tiring out.
We leave the herd behind at our daily destination. We go back to the farm by car or mini-bus at the end of our rides and are taken back to the herd next morning after breakfast.
Homemade food is provided by our hosts. Enjoy traditional Icelandic dishes which have been adapted to European taste - made with love, delicious and plentiful.
