Riding into the Wild | Wilderness Center - East

Enjoy a pleasant ride destined for the abandoned farm Kleif where you will get a chance to absorb the beautiful surroundings and have a look into the old farmhouse. Those who dare can try their hand at towing themselves across the Jökulsá River by a traditional cableway. Riding an Icelandic horse is a unique experience and moving on the horses in the wilderness is ideal for those who want to live out exclusive freedom. Daily departures from 10 June to 6 September at 10:00 and 16:00 and upon request.
