Riding on Snæfellsnes - experience, relax, discover

Day 1: Velkomin á Lýsuhól - Welcome to Lýsuhóll.
We pick you up in Keflavík or Reykjavík and take you to Lýsuhóll. During the evening meal we can get to know each other and talk about the details of the upcoming tour. Then we go for a short ride to get an impression which horses fit which rider.

Day 2: We begin the tour with a ride along the mountains and over a lava field. If we are lucky, we can meet some of our horses which are roaming freely during the summer. On we go along the beach to Búðir. There we take a break at a little wooden church which lies beautifully in a landscape of golden sand and black lava. The way home takes us along the beach, passing a seal colony and crossing a few small rivers.

Day 3: This day's ride leads us past beautiful little lakes, through a river and on broad golden beaches to the farm Stakkhamar. Our horses will spend the night there while we drive back to Lýsuhóll.

Day 4: We keep on exploring the wide beaches of Löngufjörur, which is a lot of fun for both horses and riders. Our destination is Skógarnes where the horses will find another nice place for the night.

Day 5: We enjoy another day in an area you can only access by boat or - when the tide is low - on horseback. The scenery is ever changing and fascinating. The horses spend the night at a farm called Stóra-Hraun with hundreds of rabbits for company.

Day 6: We turn to the West to start our way back home. While we took the scenic routes to reach all the most beautiful spots, we take the direct way now. The glacier Snæfellsjökull always in plain view, we ride back to Stakkhamar.

Day 7: The time has come to say goodbye to the horses, but only after another day of enjoying their special characters and gaits. The route takes us to the golden beaches and back home along the lakes and mountains. At home Jóhanna will have a special Icelandic evening feast for you and we will spend the last evening sitting and chatting about all the exciting things that happened during the tour.

Day 8: After breakfast we take you back to Reykjavík. If you are planning a longer stay in Iceland, we can arrange further accommodation for you.
Bless og sjáumst!
