Discover the beautiful landscape opening up between the mountains and sea in southern Iceland.

We ride along the Gljúfurá river to the banks of the Ölfusá river, with views of the famous volcanos Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull, weather permitting.

We stop for a lunch break before continuing our ride towards the mountains and along Mt. Reykjafjall, where both sheep and horses graze in the summer.

Awaiting us back at our farm are coffee and home-baked cake.

During the winter season, we stop at our hotel for steaming bowls of traditional Icelandic meat soup before continuing our ride towards the mountains.
