Horse riding in the vicinity of Snæfellsjökull Glacier
Stóri-Kambur horse rental offers short riding tours (1–2 hours). We begin our tour at Stóri-Kambur and ride along the golden shoreline below Snæfellsjökull, on Hraunlandarif, between Búdir and Arnarstapi, where there are magnificent views to be enjoyed. We invite our guests to experience the beautiful and tranquil nature that can be found off the beaten track on Snæfellsnes, experience the proximity to the sea and the magical force of the glacier. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful riding trails in the country.
The tours start at 10am, 12 noon, 14pm and 16pm, unless the weather is unfavourable (which it rarely is). We reserve the right to cancel tours if weather conditions are not favourable for horses and riders.
Minimum age for the riding tours is 7 years. Children under the age of 7 will be led by rein close to the stables.
Two hour tours are also on offer for those who have more experience of horses, and we also customise tours for groups and individuals.
There is no minimum number of riders required for each tour, but we recommend that all tours be booked in advance so that we can ensure that everyone has a horse to suit their skill level.
What do we provide?
We provide helmets, appropriate clothing (for rain and wind) and boots.
What should you bring along?
It is best to wear comfortable and warm clothing that isn´t slippery and doesn´t make a rustling sound.
The riding tours are on offer from May 20th until September 20th.
Viking Saga Tours
See history come alive during your horse back riding tour!
We offer a two-hour riding tour accompanied by a native storyteller who will enlighten and delight you with stories of Björn Breiðvíkingakappi.
Björn Breiðvíkingakappi, who lived on our farm, is believed to have been one of the first Europeans to set foot in North America.
The total duration of this tour is about two hours and includes the story of Björn the Viking as we ride Icelandic horses very much like the ones the Vikings brought to Iceland during the settlers period in the late 800’. At the end of the tour we offer some homemade delicacies commonly eaten during the Viking era.
We also offer other two hour tours for more experienced riders customized for individuals or groups.
