Tour 3b – Soft River Banks
2.5-3 hours riding

This tour is for experienced riders who would like to enjoy a brisk ride on an Icelandic horse in an extraordinary environment. We begin the tour on nice riding trails along our meadows which are  perfect for trying the special gait of the Icelandic horse, tölt.  We continue riding on grassland, following  the river Gljúfurá  to an old cemetery  and further down to the soft banks of the mighty glacial river Ölfusá.  From there, we have a view of the river and if the weather allows the famous volcanos Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. We proceed through a bird sanctuary before returning to our farm Vellir.

Included: 2.5-3 hours riding.
Hotel pick-up in Reykjavik every day between 8:00-8:30. Return to Reykjavik ca. 13:00.

Available all year round, starting at our farm at 9:00.

This tour is for experienced riders who ride regularly and are capable of controlling a horse in all gaits in different terrain.
