In summer 2016 we will offer a new day tour for experienced riders, Tour 6b Volcano Hengill & Hot Spring Valley. This tour is an extended version of the popular Hot Springs Tour Reykjadalur Valley, including more of the fascinating area of Volcano Hengill and of course the opportunity of taking a relaxing bath in the warm stream.
There will be a new version of Tour 15 Volcano Hekla, now including 5 days on horseback. The idea was to offer a tour with all features of a Long Tour such as a free running herd most of the time, riding distances up to 40 km a day and great environment but partly also at a leisurely pace and within a total travelling time of 7 days.
Tour 2b which was known as “The Pot Luck Tour” will be slightly changed and operated under the new name “The Siggi Tour”, named after our well known neighbor, the very original Icelandic farmer and horseman Siggi :).
The winter program has already started with the first Northern Lights Tour, and even in mid September we could observe this extraordinary natural phenomena dancing in the sky above our farm. We will adjust some of the winter tours around popular horse events in South Iceland, such as the Meistaradeild Champions League in Horse Sports and will inform you on the website and our facebook site.
Hotel Eldhestar now offers 27 rooms, including a new, large family room with five high quality beds from the Swedish manufacturer Hästens of and private facilities. The new spacious, bright dining- and conference room was opened in May and until next spring Hotel Eldhestar will be enlarged, offering 10 new, comfortable rooms.
Please note that we will change our morning pick up time from October 1 to 8:00-8:30!
Last but not least: Eldhestar was founded in the year 1986 and will be celebrating the 30. anniversary in the upcoming season!
