HORSEBACK RIDING TOUR ON STRETCHY BEACHES AND BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAINS
The beautiful Snæfellsnes Peninsula extends far out into the Atlantic from the west coast. You can find many features of the Icelandic nature in this part of the country. At Stóri-Kálfalækur Farm we start our ride into the mountains and enjoy the rich colors of nature in Hítardalur valley. Passing through lava fields and along hillsides we ride down to the shore and continue along the expansive beach. This traditional trail, only revealed when the tide is out, offers horse and rider an ideal opportunity to try their skill at “tölting” over long distances.
Participants on this tour join the longer Snæfellsnes Tour for four days and return to Reykjavík in the evening while those on the longer ride continue.
Accommodation in made up beds in shared rooms. Accommodation before and after the ride to be arranged individually.
