The Snæfellsjökull National Park is where you find one of the most recognized sights in Iceland; the glacier covered cone volcano Snæfellsjökull. Its mystical and mythical atmosphere became famous through Jules Verne’s novel "Journey to the Centre of the Earth". Many of Iceland´s famous Sagas unfolded in this spectacular area. Today a rich bird life attracts visitors from all over the world. This peninsula itself is often called "Iceland in a nutshell" because of the diversity of its landscape.

Description

Experiencing "tölt", the unique gait of the Icelandic horse is made easy for you on this tour when we follow good riding tracks on land and across sand. The smooth sand of the beach makes this tour a delight for both horses and riders.

 

This tour will lead you through mighty lava fields, craters and the ashes of ancient eruptions in Hítardalur valley. We also enjoy wide open stretches of light-coloured sand at Löngufjörur beach, where only the tide sets a limit to the freedom of horses and riders. The crater of Eldborg is a landmark, where the light sand turns black when you reach its lava field. On our last riding day we follow the outskirts of the lava flow along the shore before we return the horses to Stóri-Kálfalækur Farm.
