TO GO HORSE RIDING IN ICELAND
Visit “The Horse’s Paradise”: The riding tours starts from our stable area in Hofsós, and will take you into the beautiful valleys of Unadalur, Deildardalur and Hjaltadalur. From here you can see Skagafjördur, the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains.
We offer three different types of summer tours: the Combo Tour, that combines historical outings, exciting tales, private lessons and riding in the beautiful landscape. And of course we still do our favourite, the JF Classic Tour. We also offer JF Classic Special, with one extra riding day. We end the summer season with the Mountain Tour – a chance to experience the old horse trail from Hofsós across the valleys to Dalvik, where Jóhann grew up and started his long life and love with the horses. A truly unique chance to follow in the footsteps (or rather horseshoes) of one of Iceland’s most experienced horsemen.
During the summer tours we ride with a herd of free running horses, and will change horses during the day. The last day of the JF Classic Tour and the Combo Tour we ride far into Unadalur where most of our horses spend nearly five months a year. Here you can experience the tranquility, the mighty landscape and the freedom, that some refer to as “The Horse’s Paradise”.
