About the tour

What to expect from this tour

Join us on this Stóri-Kambur-Special: A ride across the desolate mountain pass of Jökulháls, a truly pristine path cross the magnificent Snæfellsjökull glacier.

Enjoy the beautiful terrain in the midnight sun as we set on a ride over one of the most distinctive places in the world. A place that for tens of thousands of years has been covered in a thick layer of ice and snow, only now beginning to be visible for the first time to the human eye. A surface is so unique it will feel like you entered another planet. Even today this road is only passable during the height of Summer, so book now for this limited time offer of a truly special ride.

This exclusive tour starts from Stóri Kambur in the evening hours. We will ride up the glacier road towards Snæfellsjökull. We see it’s snowy top sparkling marvelously in the sun that never sets as we get closer and closer to the peak. About halfway up, we will take a long break and soak in the unforgettable views over Breiðavík and ride across the aforementioned Jökulháls in all its beauty.

Leaving the glacier behind, we will continue to our destination.

The 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.

Important

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.
