The black beach ride

Description:

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, on the natural barrier reef at Haganes beach (by the beach if it’s high tide), or directly on the Haganes black sand beach  (if it’s low tide).  Our country is made from lava so the sand in the beach is black.  We’re riding there on a beautiful reef between the Arctic ocean and a fresh water lake bordering our farm.  Sometimes, if we have fast riders, we go over a little peninsula to another freshwater lake, reef and black beach.  As we have to take care not to disturb the abundant bird life in that area, the availability of this trip is a bit seasonal (offered all year round exept May and most of June).  But at that time we are doing another bestseller, the wonderful Viking tour, with gorgeous views over mountains and a lovely peaceful valley, it’s also a very popular tour.

We end with complementary refreshment drinks (tea, instant coffee, a fruit drink for the children).

On top of this it is super popular by groups of 10 people or less, to add on going to our indoor geothermal mineral bath (where you also can take a shower) for relaxation and fun, for maybe an hour.  You get that as a very cheap add-on option for 2200 ISK per person. More info here.

Add-on option:  Icelandic traditional waffle lunch with a variety of drinks:

On top of this it is super popular to add on getting Icelandic traditional heart-shaped waffles with a choice of toppings, as many per person as you like.  Toppings are either homemade blueberry jam, or the traditional Icelandic way (with homemade rhubarb jam), also whipped cream (if you like), or simply Nutella chocolate spread, pancake syrup or maple sirup. Also with hot chocolate, good real coffee, a choice of teas, or carbonated fizzy water if you like.  You get that as a very cheap add-on lunch option to the other options for 2800 ISK per person.  We can make gluten free waffles if booked beforehand.
