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 at least once.  If the water is low enough in the river we can cross it many times, where it is 50-80 cm deep.  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, again, depending on the water level, we can either 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 (or if people totally love going through water and the water is low, we can go the same way back through the river).  In this ride we are simply a bit flexible and enjoy the bounty and fun that the nature offers us on that particular day.

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
