Iceland 2021

Our homepage moved for Christmas so it wasn’t possible to update anything but now ☺Our brochure 21 has been sent with mail and can also be downloaded from our homepage and all tours 21 are there. And there is worry-free vacation planning with us through simplified booking conditions without a deposit and binding until you can see what will be. And we already have a lot, for example the Horse round up at the end of September is not available at the moment. So plan your vacation, write to us and otherwise 2020 has taught us to be flexible is everything, but the many guests who were here in the summer of 20 were rewarded with much fresher Air and plenty of space for everyone in Iceland’s magnificent nature.

Spring has arrived – now hopefully for real!

After it started snowing again last week, we are happy to report that it is gradually getting warmer again and we are very certain that spring will stay with us this time around, but you never know in Iceland 😉 Just in time for the warmer weather our first foal of this year has been born – a very pretty, little mare! The lambing season is in full swing, the Golden plover as Iceland’s herald of spring is of course already here and now the beautiful Arctic tern and the cute Puffins have also arrived! We are already very busy in our guesthouse and our team is very motivated- we are ready for summer season 🙂 If you want to experience Iceland’s nature during this unique period, then we still have a place for you on our Springtime Highlight Tour!

Riding, Nature and Experience – this summer

Many of our riding horses are still outside enjoying their holiday and we can safely assume that they have recuperated from last season by now 🙂 We are looking forward to our riding tours this summer and we would like to invite you to come along with us! During our riding tour Riding, Nature, Experience you will experience the true icelandic riding tradition and enjoy the comfort of our guesthouse here in Brekkulækur. We ride through our beautiful valley, visit neighbours and cross rivers on quick and sure-footed horses. The highlight is of course our trip to the Fjord, where we are accompanied by our herd of free running horses – a truly unique experience! On this tour, you will not only discover Iceland from horseback: we will visit the local swimming pool and relax in the natural hot water; drive around the stunning Vatnsnes peninsula with Iceland’s biggest seal colony, black beaches and the basalt formation Hvítserkur. On the way back south we will take a look at the waterfalls Hraunfossar and Barnafoss and explore Europe’s biggest lava cave Surtshellir. You can find more impressions of this tour here. Places are especially on the 3rd (26.07. – 03.08.) und the 5th (16.08. – 24.08.) tour available!

Tour: Around Iceland

After we had a few lovely spring days in the last few weeks, now it seems like winter intends to make another short visit. We’d rather think of sunshine than snow and since our first Around Iceland Tour is already approaching, we are very much looking forward to green fields, endless days and warmth 🙂 All in all, we are travelling around our beautiful island four times this year and there a still a few spots available! The tour includes of course all the highlights: the beautiful waterfalls Gullfoss, Dettifoss, Goðafoss, Seljalandsfoss und Skógafoss, the famous Geysir, lake Mývatn and the surrounding unique nature, national park Vatnajökull and the incredible glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón. But we also want to visit places that are off the beaten track: we go hiking in the uninhabited highland, to lake Lagarfljót and the waterfall Hengifoss, visit the picturesque fishing village Djúpivogur and walk through the beautiful Skaftafell national park.
If you want to explore Iceland not only from your car or a bus, but also have the time to experience its beautiful nature during long hikes, then this tour is for you! You can find more pictures here: Gallery Around Iceland

Spring in Iceland

Slowly but certainly we are leaving winter behind us: the first flowers are blossoming, the days are getting longer and the sun is warm 🙂 Our first riding tour took place on the first easter weekend and our guests received a lot of snow as a special easter present. If you are interested, you can find pictures on facebook: Horses and hot pools. Now, we are looking forward to sunnier days and, since the birds are singing rather loudly every morning, to our Springtime Highlight Tour at the end of May! A small group of bird lovers is still waiting for reinforcements, so if you want to experience Iceland’s budding nature in late spring, then Puffins, red-necked phalarope, snow grouse, golden plover and many other migrating birds are simply waiting for you to take the perfect picture!
During this tour we will visit the peninsulas Reykjanes and Vatnsnes, go boating to an uninhabited birdparadise and visit the remote highland. On the way back from the north, we will drive through the unparalleled Westfjords and take the ferry over Breiðafjörður to the myth-enshrouded peninsula Snæfellsnes. Waterfalls, glaciers, lavacliffs, black beaches – this tour truly shows us the most beautiful parts of Iceland!
