  • Riding, Nature, Experience

    7/8 DAYS – COMBINED RIDING AND NATURE-SIGHTSEEING TOUR

    A versatile tour that leaves nothing to be desired! We will go riding in our home-region between the Highlands and the Coast, along fine bridle paths, off the beaten tourist tracks. We start the adventure with rides in our region – along the river Miðfjarðaá and over pathless mountains, where our horses get to show their willingness and surefootedness! The highlight of our trip is a riding tour to the fjord Miðfjörður, where – in true icelandic spirit – a herd of free running horses accompanies us. Apart from discovering Iceland on horseback, you also get to enjoy the beautiful nature in West-Iceland on excursions with a minibus. Visit beautiful places such as the peninsula Vatnsnes with Iceland’s biggest seal colony and the unique basalt formation Hvítserkur, the woodland Húsafell, Europe’s biggest hot spring Delidartunguhver, the magical Waterfall Hraunfossar and the Lava Cave Surtshellir.
