During the tour we will stay in simple mountain huts, spending 3 nights at different locations. The accommodation is simple, warm and clean typically comprising dormitory rooms or a single space. Each hut has shared bathroom facilities.
Meals at the horse farm and in the mountain huts will be family style, consisting of typical Icelandic cuisine, featuring dairy products, fish, lamb, and potatoes.
