HORSEBACK RIDING HOLIDAYS IN WESTERN ICELANDIn the summer, we offer 4 & 6 days riding tours for intermediate and experienced riders. We ride in small groups along the beautiful coastline of Southern Snaefellsnes. (In spring & autumn we offer our Stay & Beachride tour, a 2 nights stay with a fabulous beachride on our own beach, for more information go to our off season page under book tour)
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 the time of spring tide, even more of the sand is exposed and the ground is softer. There we can ride for hours on the famous smooth gait tolt, unique to Icelandic horses, and the horses can really show their worth running free without any obstacles to slow them down.
Even though the tour is a roundtrip, and the horses stay on a field where we have stopped for the day, you’ll return each day back to the farm where you can enjoy a bit of luxury in our Lodge The Holy Ram. We have double & singlerooms with private bathrooms, a great hall with a cozy livingroom feeling, where you’ll have magnificient view of the glacier Snaefellsjökull and the beach.
Non-riders are more then welcome to join their partners, our farm Gröf is very close by the Snaefellsjökull national park, which is a great area to hike and explore. In the neighbourhood there’s a beautiful 9 hole golfcourse for golflovers, plenty of fish in the lakes & rivers for fishlovers, or just enjoy the peacefull surroundings of our farm with a wide variety of birds. Both around our guest house and further away, various species nest. Also on our fields we have wildflowers & herbs for naturelovers, take a walk to our beach or go up to our mountains to see the waterfalls and meet our young horses along the way or just relax in the hottub, not enough? Perhaps you would like to go up the glacier Snaefellsjökull www.theglacier.is or go deep down under into a 8000 yr old mysterious Cave Vatnshellir www.vatnhellir.is
