New Winter Special Program

How about a short winter riding vacation in Iceland?

Eldhestar has previously offered winter packages combining riding tours, practical and theoretical education in our modern, bright riding hall and a comfortable stay with delicious Icelandic specialties at our cozy eco-certified Country Hotel Eldhestar.

We now offer our winter tour RIDING COURSE & RIDING TOURS with a new program and we are very glad to be able to add  a WINTER SPECIAL RIDING COURSE with the well known  German/English speaking  trainer and instructor Hugrún Jóhannsdóttir (March 11-14).  Experienced riders get the chance to develop their riding skills, ride in extraordinary environment and, as a highlight, see some of the best horses and riders at the Champions League in Horse Sports Tölt competition (“Meistaradeild”).

Christmas Show

Around mid December, the Icelandic “Jólasveinar” come me out of nearby mount Ingólfsfjall. In Iceland, Christmas is not only celebrated with the usual Red one arriving with the reindeer on Christmas day but also with 13 yule lads, who are actually Christmas trolls. The The first one arrives 13 days before Christmas and every well behaving child might find some little surprise every morning (or a potato, if not behaving…).
This year, the yule lads also visited Eldhestar. Of course they came on horseback, and they gave a VERY impressive performance for our staff and their families & friends!
You can read more about the 13 Christmas trolls and other information about Christmas traditions in Iceland here!

Eldhestar Brochure 2015

Eldhestars new brochure for 2015 can now be downloaded on the website! Please click here.

When the summer had come to an end with the sheep round up as last highlight of the season and most of our horses started their long winter vacation in the freedom of vast fields we were already busy planning next season.In summer 2015 we will offer a new tour including four days of riding in the best riding areas in the South and Southwest of Iceland, “Eldhestar Exclusive” (Tour 8f). This tour is recommended for experienced riders wishing to spend exciting days on horseback in small groups and enjoy the comfort of our Hotel Eldhestar in the evenings.

The brochure 2015 also includes information about our program for the period October 2014 – May 2015. Winter time is riding season in Iceland and our guests can choose between most of our half-day-tours, day-tours and combo-tours as well as special shorter winter-tours with riding, activities, relaxing and – with a little luck – the stunning Northern Lights above our farm.

Guests interested in photography will find an interesting new program “Riding & Photography Course” (Tour 35) in May 2015.

We have decided to offer accommodation at Guesthouse Eldhestar in fall, winter and spring. Guests who would like to book our popular tour “Nature’s Pleasures and Rider´s Treasures” (Tour 8a / Tour 8b) are now welcome to stay either in our hotel or in the guesthouse.

Of course you can also contact us regarding your tailor-made vacation at Eldhestar.
