About the tour

What to expect from this tour

Starting from Stóri Kambur and riding on our very own Hraunlandarif beach for a little while, we reach the ancient lava field of Búðarhraun and follow a stone marked path, a 1200 years old street made by our Viking forefathers.

Continuing uphill, we leave the stunning valley behind and enter green fields in the mountains, where several waterfalls and rivulets can be spotted around. We take a longer break, before heading further into the direction of Ólafsvík.

After climbing up to the top of the mountain, we get to experience the breathtaking view over all of Breiðavík. We inhale the fresh mountain air one last time, then we follow the small paths back to our farm.

There is no riding experience necessary to join us on this trip. However, we do require a good level of fitness and confidence around horses, because we have to mount and dismount the horses several times during this tour as well as lead our four-legged partners uphill for a short amount of time.

We ride at a medium speed, depending on the attending group members. The minimum age is 13. The total duration of this trip is 5-6 hours.

The horses

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.
