Description

Join the farmers in this great autumn adventure. Ride alongside them when they drive the herd, sort the horses and celebrate the successful return of horses and men. The varied terrain includes the highland moors and green valleys just turning into their autumn colours of burnished red and yellow, deep blue lakes and rivers and the gorge of Kolugljúfur where a troll woman resided in the olden days.

Icelandic Horses Running

Round 'em up

From Hvammur Farm in the North we will follow good riding tracks until we meet the Icelanders who have already been gathering horses for some days. We will join them and help them to drive the herd down to the Víðidalstungurétt corral. When this task has been fulfilled the locals celebrate the successful round-ups with a ball "réttardansleikur" and we are welcome to join in the fun. The next day the horses are sorted. Experience the excitement of both men and horses when the horses and foals are selected from the herd and returned to their rightful owners.
