OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND.
Our life is horse tours. It’s been our passion, all our life. To go out in the nature and be a team with the horse. To see the beautiful places, and sometimes tough landscape, that molded our beloved Icelandic horse. To have the companionship of other horse lovers, and to just live and breathe the fresh air in the nature, and feel the rhythm of life.
We offer guided horse tours with one of us, the local farmers at Langhus farm, or our assistant guides. We have well trained horses, steady and obedient, they are our family- and work-horses. They are our friends, they are happy, well taken care of, and live a fulfilled life. They are of the breed The Icelandic horse, the horses the Viking settlers brought to Iceland a thousand years ago. We take the time to match you with the right horse for you, and to give good instructions about riding so you can enjoy the tour better. We keep this on a personal level, so people can see the Icelandic nature, the background of the horses and what made them what they are (the sometimes harsh and sometimes wonderful nature, the breeding, the people and the culture), get a little lesson, get to know excellent horses and visit a true Icelandic family horse farm on the real countryside. Join us as we share what is unique about our horse and Iceland. We are open all year round.
We have several tour options to give ideas. But we love to hear about your background and preferences, it helps us choose a horse that is great for you personally. We emphasize on a personal experience and small groups. The small group size allows good levels of dialogue along the way. Just feel free to contact us and we make something wonderful together, and more important, have fun. Our niche is creating unique, intimate, authentic experiences, off the beaten path.
Also, it always takes a few minutes extra to prepare you for the tour, and it’s not fun for you to be in a hurry. We do a little riding lesson before the tour itself starts, so if you are beginners you learn a bit about how to ride, and experienced riders learn how to ride the Icelandic horse. That is helpful and fun for everybody. So, the whole visit/experience here can easily take 30-90 minutes more than the trail ride itself.
Animal welfare is also a priority for us, each horse never goes on more than 1 tour per day, and we give them at least 2 days off per week. They also get at least 2 months of vacation every year. They have big grassy pastures to roam on, and top quality hay in the winter time. They live a very natural life in big herds.
Eco-consciousness is also a priority on our farm, to minimize trash, pollution and strain on nature.
On our website you also find other experiences than rides, like the geothermal mineral bath, the waffle snacks (with home made jam from Icelandic nature), and the farm visits.
Our groups are usually small. But if you have a bigger group coming together, then we can now accommodate groups of up to 20 beginner riders, and 25 if some in your group are experienced. We also have programs for even bigger groups than that.
We focus on delivering the highest quality experience for our clients, which is why bookings are done through our contact form on the website, so we can share details with each other to create your personal experience.
