6 DAY TOUR
ÞÓRSMÖRK HORSE TOUR
we meet you at Keflavik airport :)
We are heading to the horse farm along the South Coast (where our journey will begin)
You will have dinner and there is a possibility to relax in the hottub before going to bed.
Accommodation: Skálakot dormitory (sleeping bag accomodation). Facilities: shared bathroom/shower, hot tub, WiFi
On the first riding day you are having two nice riding tours, both will be around three hours. This day is perfect to get a little bit more familiar with the horses and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of our farm. In between the riding tours you have lunch at the farm. In the morning you head to the mountains to meet up with the mighty Eyjafjallajökull glacier. For the second riding tour you head down to the black beach of the Atlantic Ocean. This riding tour is perfect to practice the famous extra gait that the Icelandic horses have; the tölt! At the end of the day, the hottub will be waiting for us to relax the muscles after our first day of riding.
Accommodation: Skálakot dormitory (sleeping bag accomodation). Facilities: shared bathroom/shower, hot tub, WiFi.
Today you will ride with a herd of loose running horses in to the nature reserve Þórmsörk. You will drive the horses with us and make several stops on the way where you change horses. The trails take us around the mountain Eyjafjöll and pass the famous waterfall Seljalandsfoss. You continue on good riding paths and slowly leave the civilization. And as you go further you will cross some small rivers before you untack the horses and jump into the truck who will take us over the final river Krossá. Our guides will make sure the horses get over the river and you soon reach Húsadalur, where you have a dinner buffet in the restaurant and a well-deserved rest. Also it is possible here to enjoy a natural hottub or go in the sauna.
Riding distance: 40 km
In the morning you will ride in the area called Almenningar, an area where you leave our sheep to graze over the summertime. The area is beautiful with great mountain and glacier views in nice weather. Along the way you can tell you lots of stories about the area, as well as the names of the mountains, rivers and glaciers you will see. After this approximately 4 hour riding tour you ride back to Húsadalur for lunch and a small rest. When you have reloaded our batteries, you will saddle some fresh horses for a riding tour into the magnificent ravine Stakkholtsgjá. This area has been used a lot as a decor in movies, and when you see it you will understand why! This second riding tour is a bit shorter and will take about two hours. After this riding tour you head back to Húsadalur for a good meal, a nice hottub or sauna and our second night.
Today you ride the horses back home. After you had a good breakfast and packed our bags, you will ride over the river Krossá and head back the same beautiful way you came on the third day. By this time you know the horses well and you will have a good pace. At home in Skálakot there will be a last dinner waiting for us, and of course the hottub to relax the muscles after the long riding day!
Riding distance: 40 km
On this day you have breakfast and say goodbye to the group and the horses. We pick you up on a farm and rush to beautiful hilly areas where hot springs are beating from the ground.
We say goodbye to Iceland
