Arinbjörn Jóhannsson – Riding Tours – Hiking Tours – Special Events – Guesthouse in Iceland
46 years ago…
we started offering horseback riding tours and now our family business is a licensed tour operator with a wide range of offerings. A lot has changed during this time, some things have remained the same, in Iceland and here: Iceland was and is a paradise for nature lovers with surprising impressions and incredible diversity in the landscape.
Our riding tours are characterized by routes in beautiful, varied, challenging terrain, our horses have good spirit power and stamina and on some days we have afree-roaming herd of horses with us. Our trekking/hiking tours cover a wide range – from short hikes in combination with a bus tour to a demanding several day-long highland tour, our program offers something for everybody. Our local guides, who speak English, often German and of course Icelandic, are professional and experienced.
They enjoy introducing their beautiful island to you, while always keeping our focal points in mind: To experience nature, to collect impressions, and, by visting other farms, festivities and our neighbours, to get to know the icelandic community. Of course, we also try to incorporate icelandic traditions into our program, like regularly vistiting the natural hot pools in the area! Apart from the famous sightseeing attractions, we try to show you parts of Iceland that are far off the beaten tracks and are not necessarily accessible for everybody.
Today, we are a licensed travel- and tourist office and live on a farm, which has been owned by the same family for the past 100 years. We aspire to gentle tourism in harmony with people and nature. Our farm Brekkulækur, heart of all our activities, contains our home, office, stables and a guesthouse where you can contact us all year through.
Iceland is an ideal travel destination: there is more than enough space and no crowds, plus a lot of fresh air. We will be happy to advise you comprehensively so that your trip to Iceland will be an unforgettable experience!
