In the month of June the sun never fully sets in the high north and the nights are bright in all of Iceland. According to Icelandic folklore, cows gain the powers of speech, seals become human, and it is healthy to roll naked in the dew-covered grass on the brightest night of the year.
We stay at Kjóastaðir Farm located near the Geysir hot spring area and Gullfoss Waterfall. During two riding days “tölt”, the special gait of the Icelandic horse will be introduced to you while riding to both these magnificent natural sights. Get ready for a ride in the evening to enjoy the tranquility of the Icelandic countryside and the bright nights of Iceland.
