Fantastic horseback riding 3 hour tour

On this 3 hour horseback riding tour we ride from the farm up the hill behind the stable. There we will follow the track up to Skarðsá river where we will stop and rest the horses for a while before we climb up the hills towards Reykjaskarð passing. At the top you will have the perfect view over all Skagafjörður fjord. For example, you will see all the three islands of Skagafjörður: Drangey island, Málmey island and Þórðarhöfði island. It’s also claimed you can spot all the twelve churches in Skagafjörður from there.

Beautiful landscape with magnificent riding tracks where you get to know how amazing the Icelandic horse is on gravel and bumpy tracks.

Good riding skills needed, it’s a long tour.
