The river ride

Description:

We go along a countryside road with beautiful mountain scenery in a scenic valley, then a wonderful trail where we ride on the river bank of the Flokadalsa river, crossing it several times. Our sure footed horses wade then in up to 80 cm (2 1/2 foot) deep water without hesitation.  This is a fun ride for those that like riding through water.  We ride in the Flokadalur valley where tall and steep mountains provide a breathtaking scenery.  Then we can take the same way back.  Or if you want to ride a faster way (with more tolt or trot), we can take a different way back, by a country road with hardly any traffic, then cross grassy meadows, cross the river again at a place where the water sometimes reaches all the way to the belly of the horse, and head back home.  In this ride we are simply a bit flexible and enjoy the bounty and fun that the nature offers us on that particular day.

 

This tour can be made as a longer trail ride (4 hours ride with a refreshments break, and the whole experience can then be ca. 5 hours).

Duration and price:

3 hours ride, including refreshments (where the whole experience can be 4 hours), price 17 000 ISK.

4 hours ride, including refreshments (where the whole experience can be 5 hours), price 22 000 ISK.

Riding level:

If we ride on the river banks this is a fun ride for both beginners and experienced riders.  If we are going to wade several times through the river you have to be a little bit experienced (but it depends on the depth of the river, and your choice, whether we do this).

Meeting point:

The Langhus farm, where the roads 76 and 787 cross. Gps dots are N66°03.653 and W019°07.280 or 66,060942 and 19,121477
