A four day riding tour all-inclusive adventure for experienced riders that combines the best Iceland has to offer. The tour is based in Skjaldarvík in North Iceland, a few kilometers from Akureyri town, where riders will stay all four nights. Optional is to stay in an old turf farm, Baugasel, located in Barkárdalur during the third night which will take you back to the basics with no running water, no electricity and no WIFI! The four day all-inclusive riding tour is truly a once in a lifetime adventure that should not be missed. During the tour a herd of free-running horses will travel with the group but riders will not be assigned one single horse for the duration of the tour but ride 3-4 horses per day, which gives riders the opportunity to test their skills.
