  • Horses and hot pools

    7/8 DAYS – RIDING, SIGHTSEEING, HIKING

    We invite you to welcome the start of the season on our farm Brekkulækur, which is located away from the hustle and bustle of city life in a beautiful river valley. This tour is suitable for families, horse – and nature enthusiasts. We explore the area on horseback and experience the icelandic horses in their natural surroundings. Sightseeing, relaxation in natural hot water swimming pools, enjoying icelandic specialities and visiting local artists is all part of the program. Relax, take a big breath of fresh icelandic air and feel at home in the warm and friendly atmosphere of our farm. This program is also a treat for non–riders!
