  • Horses and Men

    6 DAYS – EXCHANGE – BREEDING – INSIGHT – GET TOGETHER

    On this tour, we offer a small group of horse-lovers the unique chance to visit family-operated and professional breeding farms in beautiful North-West Iceland! We visit our friends and neighbours, for example the internationally reknowned farms Hof and Steinnes, and gain personal insight into their training and breeding methods. Experience their typical icelandic hospitality and take part in fruitful discussion around the icelandic horse! We will of course not only show you Iceland’s horses, but also its extraordinary nature, its surprisingly delicious cuisine, and the only true way of relaxing and warming up after spending the whole day outside: in an icelandic hot pot with naturally warm water. A visit to Iceland’s biggest „horsevillage“ is also planned, where the owner of famous stallion Eldjárn frá Tjaldhólum is expecting us. One thing is for certain: this will be a very exciting trip!
