Snæhestar offers you at Lýsuhóll
the different riding tour on Iceland
thank you for the picture, Uwe!

This very special riding tour explores the most beautiful spots of the peninsula in a personal atmosphere. The participants are accommodated in homely summerhouses at the farm, so that they can relax in the nearby swimming pool and hot tub (with warm mineral water directly from the ground). You can also go trout-fishing in the farm's own river after an exciting day in the saddle.

As we mostly ride along the wide beaches of Iceland's most beautiful horse riding area "Löngufjörur", we have to plan the rides according to times of low tide. This means that there will be the occasional free morning or afternoon, which we can use for some sightseeing in the area. Depending on the weather and other circumstances, we can see rocks with nesting birds, gorges, caves or especially beautiful beaches or we can go on a trip with a fishing boat

For those interested, we can give you insight into the breeding and training of our horses. You might also get the chance to see them roaming freely in the mountains and to study their natural behaviour.

We'll spend up to 6 hours a day on horseback, tölting or trotting most of the way. Therefore participants need to have a good basic riding experience.

The amazingly beautiful landscape with mountains, sea, sandy beaches, lakes, lava fields and last but not least the magically fascinating glacier Snæfellsjökull as well as the close contact to the unique Icelandic horses and people make this riding tour a very special experience!

Here you can find a detailed program of the tours.
