Farm visit with an Icelandic horse:
TOUR OPERATORS that want to give their groups a unique experience, we have the Farm visits. It is a great choice for groups of ca. 16-45 people.
In short, this is about:
- Getting to know the amazing Icelandic horses close up.
- Meeting locals.
- Having either a great traditional Icelandic dinner or home made pastries.
- If you want to, to ride on an Icelandic horse in an arena (not out on trail).
Then you also have a lovely opportunity for feeding your group at the same time as they have fun, as included is also a variety of either (you choose one of these options):
- A traditional Icelandic Sunday dinner: Lamb steak (from the sheep on the farm), salad with locally produced sheep cheese and Icelandic vegetables from Iceland’s hot spring heated green houses, and mashed potatoes. Chocolate cake as dessert, also coffee and tea. Available for groups of ca. 30-45 people.
- Icelandic very old style Icelandic delicacies, home made local pastries and snacks, coffee and tea. Available for groups of ca. 16-45 people.
Good time frame for the whole stop here: Ca. 1.5 hours.
Free lunch for the guide and driver.
In more details:
Us the hosts live on the farm all year round and are full-time professional horse breeders/trainers and doing horse tours all year round, and own 90 horses. We are born in Iceland, and our children are the 5. generation on the farm. Our staff is also horse crazy people that love everything about horses and Iceland.
This is fun all year round, because in the wintertime most of the animals are stabled and close encounters are easier than ever, and in the summer time it is fun to see the horses outdoors for a great petting and photographing time. Our purebred Icelandic sheepdog Pila also loves having visitors. Travel agencies love the farm visits for their bigger groups. Our stable and lounge is easily accessible so this also fits well for f.ex. elderly people and is also wheel chair accessible. This is also a popular option if you have a group where some people want to do a riding tour and others want to have a fun experience without riding.
Your people can also ride for a few circles in our riding arena, it’s a fun moment to get in touch with a horse and get a picture of yourself on horseback 🙂
Our lounge can take 16 people in seats, so people take turns, one group at a time having dinner and another group having fun with the horses.
