Trail of Hope - North West Explorer Autumn
Iceland Shorts Iceland
This tour is an ideal opportunity for anyone wanting to enjoy a comfortable ride in a variety of landscapes. As we ride through unspoiled nature our guide introduces us to Iceland´s heroic past with tales of bloody conflict, revenge and love from the ancient Sagas.

Cantering along seemingly endless sandy stretches with the sea air in one´s face is an exhilarating experience for both rider and mount. There´s plenty of time to try the horse´s unique gait known as  “tölt” while enjoying nature and learning something of the rich history of this beautiful and remote area.
We start the ride at Hvammur Farm in Vatnsdalur valley. Sense the adrenaline kick as we ride across  the waters of Lake Hóp, driving a herd of free-running horses ahead of us. A visit to a seal colony on the North-Atlantic coast is something you don´t want to miss.
