Description:

In this tour we combine experiences from several of our most popular tours. Then we’ll ride in a circle. We go through moors on a country side road with very little traffic, down to an old little former village by the beach.  We ride on the coast, or directly on a black sand beach (our country is made from lava so the sand in the beach is black) on a beautiful reef between the Arctic ocean and a fresh water lake bordering our farm.  We go up the beautiful and striking Flokadalur valley, we go past some farms on a quiet country road, seeing up to the highlands and over looking a peaceful lake, and cross the deep Flokadalsa river (which is a thrill).  Then we ride through a forest with beautiful views, or to take a gallop (please book the gallop part on beforehand, if you like galloping, and are an experienced rider).  We stop for a refreshment break and good chatting (where we can tell you lots about Iceland, history, countryside, or whatever your heart desires, if you’re interested) where everybody can stretch their legs.  We both go a lot in walk and in faster gait (tolt or trot) in this tour.  It’s a mix of walk and faster gaits (tolt or trot), and fun for both sporty beginners, novice riders (having ridden ca. 6-10 times) and experienced riders 🙂

It’s 3,5-4 hour total. (where the whole experience can be 4,5 hours), and includes refreshments/snacks.

As we have to take care not to disturb the abundant bird life in that area, the availability of including the beach in this trip is a bit seasonal, it´s offered all year round except May and most of June.   Sometimes in the winter parts of the trail can be closed for other reasons.  On the other hand, when the usual All sorts tour isn’t possible, we’ve made another kind of mix of some of our popular tours, for a 3.5-4 hour experience, so feel free to contact us for more information about our availability of some kind of version of the All sorts tour, at any time of the year.
