Icelandic Farmlands
East and South Iceland

Join this lovely ride though winding green valleys and into Iceland's wilderness
This tour incudes 4 riding days along lovely routes in splendid green countryside. During the ride, we enjoy marvelous views of the Volcano Hekla and the glaciers Langjökull and Eyjafjallajökull.

We ride into the uninhabited wild north of the Tungufellsdalur valley and follow the mighty salmon river Stóra-Laxá sided by fantastic basalt columns on wonderful tölting tracks.
On horseback, we visit the golden waterfall Gullfoss from its much more remote eastern side and ride along the breathtaking Laxárgljúfur canyon.  A visit to the other famous Golden Circle sites such as Þingvellir National Park and the hot spring Geysir is included on the transfer days.
