HORSEBACK RIDING HOLIDAYS IN WESTERN ICELAND
In the summer of 2017, we offer seven days riding tours for small groups along the beautiful coastline of Southern Snaefellsnes.
We trail from Gröf through a magical, ever-changing landscape, from rough lava, over sparkling streams and rivers, to white sandy beaches until we reach Löngufjörur, one of the longest beaches in Iceland, at spring tide.
At spring tide, even more of the sand is exposed and the beach looks like a mirror. This traditional trail, is only revealed by the tide, offers horses and riders great opportunities to perform the smooth gait “tölt, unique to Icelandic horses, over long distances.
The Icelandic horse is a five-gaited breed, famous for its smooth tölt or flying pace. The Icelandic horse is also known for its sure-footedness, strength and ability to cross rough terrain, and for its good nature.
All our horses are bred from top quality stallions and most of them from top quality mares from our own breeding stock.
