Borgarnes Beach & Valleys
West Iceland

This tour includes 5 exciting riding days along the beach and up the mountains of Western Iceland. It takes you to some of the most exhilarating routes and views in Borgarfjörður.

Our daily rides on excellent Icelandic horses take us along the beach with views to the beautiful fjord Borgarfjörður on one side and to the high mountains of Hafnjarfjall and Skarðsheiði on the other side. We will ride for two days along the beach and for three days in green valleys, on a riverbank and over the heathland.  As a special treat we also visit Krauma, a lovely geothermal SPA at the mighty Deildartunguhver hot spring!
