TOUR 2C - Speciality of the Season


Taste the traditional Icelandic food and combine riding with tradition! This tour starts with a riding tour in the spirit of the Vikings. Where we go depends on wind, weather and the participants’ riding experience. When we have dismounted our horses, a traditional meal featuring the speciality of the season awaits us.

From September – December (Autumn’s Leaves): The Icelandic Speciality hangikjöt.

From January – April (Thorrablot – Back to the Viking midwinter blot): Thorrablot – traditional exotic Icelandic food.

Modern alternatives for vegetarians are available on request.

Beautiful landscape, very friendly and sweet horses. Our guide facilitated for my daughter at seven so that she was led in the beginning and while trotting, and walked by herself on way back. We were on an hour ride, and we definitely wanted more.
