Live out the dream of a seaside ride being carried on the back of the mythical Icelandic horse in a picturesque experience fit for a fantasy.
We go on a tour starting at the beach next to the small fishing town Thorlákshöfn. We follow the beach, riding on soft black lava sand to the picturesque area where the mighty river Ölfusá meets the sea. We continue our tour through shallow water at the edge of the river delta and ride on the soft, green river banks back to our farm Vellir. On our way we enjoy spectacular views, weather permitting, and have good chances to see birds of various kinds. (The tour can also start at our farm and end at Thorlákshöfn, depending on tides).
Pick up and drop off, riding 4.5 – 5,5 – about 20 km, lunchbox on tour, coffee and home-baked cake after tour. We provide helmets and rain gear/winter overalls.
Please wear clothes according to weather and solid shoes. We recommend hiking boots.
