ABOUT THE TOUR
During autumn and winter, we offer great riding adventures from Saltvík farm in the north of Iceland. We make some day rides from Saltvík farm along the coastline of the Arctic Ocean and if possible get the chance to experience the amazing feeling of riding on the ice at one of the frozen lakes nearby. Iceland in winter costume is truly an adventure to experience!
There is a good chance you will see the Northern Lights in action in the Arctic sky above north Iceland during the autumn/winter seasons. We will do our best to find the best possibilities in the area for watching the Northern Lights when they show up in the evening!
Other attractions visited include Lake Mývatn, Dimmuborgir, the lava formations near Lake Mývatn and the hot springs at the geothermal area of Hverarönd.
Accommodation is in double rooms at Saltvík farm with private WC/showers facilities in a newly renovated guesthouse.
The north part of Iceland is truly one of the best places in the world for watching the northern lights during winter. Each departure has varied highlights such as the preparation period for Christmas in December, the crazy fireworks of the New Years. In February and March, we spend a day at some riding tournaments on ice which is a popular event among Icelandic riders.
Optional at extra cost is also a sailing trip from Husavík harbour, for whale watching or a Northern Lights hunt on the Arctic Sea.
Meeting point on the first day is at Eagle air airport in Reykjavík for the domestic flight to Husavik in the north – flight time is around 45 min. A representative from Saltvík farm will be waiting at the arrival airport for the drive to Saltvík farm – around 5 min drive.
