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. Once we are back home and the horses have been unsaddled, the household at Stóri-Kambur will offer you coffee or tea while everyone rests their bones, and shares stories and anecdotes.
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 June 1st until September 15th.
