Northern Tours Iceland

We are proud to present this beautiful autumn riding adventure in the North West of Iceland. There is a lot of diversity in this tour starting with beautiful mountain views from the wide Húnaflói Fjord and into the mysterious highland with a great view towards the two great glaciers: Hofsjökull and Langjökull

We will meet sheep farmers on their way back to civilization after many days in the saddle, herding a big flock of sheep. It is for sure a unique sight to witness 14 000 sheep on their way back home after spending the summer up in the highland followed by over 30 shepherds with 100 horses! You can feel the joy and the excitement as everyone is on their way back home. You can for sure help them out and take part in the singing and happiness.

When you take part in this Round-Up you are experiencing the Real Thing! You will be one of the group to herd and sort the animals. Of course, that means long hours outside in sometimes cold weather. Iceland in autumn has many colors and types of weather. Anticipate to be in golden sunshine one moment and to ride in the rain and even sleet during the next.
We, therefore, recommend to dress well during these tours, to bring long woolen underwear and lots of woolen socks and gloves. It is also good to bring some „quick energy suppliers “ like chocolate. A warm rider is a happy rider!
