Our Short rides
Stóri-Kambur horse rental offers short riding tours.
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.
We are a family-run business
Stóri-Kambur horse rental is a small family run business that strives towards providing our guests with an unforgettable and personal experience of nature as well as the history of Snæfellsnes, whilst also introducing them to the near-mythical being that is the Icelandic horse. Having personally owned horses for all of our lives and well before opening this horse rental we have fostered a deep connection with our four-legged friends, who as well as our dogs are an integral part of our family. Many of whom have been with us longer than our children and as a result, we know them all as we would an old friend.
Each and every one of which is their own character who needs it‘s own individual care and treatment.
Come ride with us on a short riding tour on one of the most beautiful trails in West Iceland. What better way to experience Icelandic nature than on an Icelandic horse?
We also offer accommodation in cosy cottages with amazing views. Suitable for 2-4 people.
Private tours and groups
We are happy to make a customized tour for you and your group. Suitable for those riders with some experience and can take from 2 hours up to a day trip. If you´d like a little challenge or more privacy, feel free to contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.
Get to know our horses
We place great importance on our horses having a good temperament, and that they are diverse when it comes to their looks, abilities and character. After all, our guest's experiences vary, and while some have never been on a horse before, others are advanced riders. We try our best to find a horse that suits the skill level of each and every rider individually. So, come now and get to know our horses in person while riding on one of the prettiest tracks in the country.
Disinfection instructions from the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority
Importing horses to Iceland is strictly forbidden. Due to the isolation of the country and the import ban, the Icelandic horse has been lucky enough to avoid most of the diseases horses in other countries can be inflicted with. Importation of used tackle, riding clothes or anything else which may be used around horses is also strictly forbidden unless it has been disinfected in accordance with law. See further on the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority’s website.
We care deeply about our horses and the Icelandic horse breed. Please help us maintain the health of the Icelandic horse and respect rules regarding the disinfection of tackle and riding clothes.
