Overview
More
We offer horse treks for experienced riders in small groups of up to 5 people on Icelandic Horses. The rides last 1, 2 or 2.5 hrs and go along a tidal lagoon and the longer rides go to the beach and through a forest. Before the ride we groom and saddle the horses together and turn them out to their paddock after the ride. Bookings are essential. Please arrive at the arranged time. You need to plan in the riding time plus one additional hour. We are open all year round but are closed on Mondays. Our weight limit for riders is 100 kg.

Very exiting to gallop on a loooong sand beach. The Icelandic horses were very nice and well kept including one that stared in the Hobbit, Glaumur.

I did a one-hour lagoon trek on a lovely pinto Icelandic Horse. Longer rides are also available. To state the obvious, all of the horses are Icelandic Horses, a breed known for it's smooth "fifth gait" called the toelt. Unlike a trot there's no bounce....More
