Celebrate the Viking heritage riding the Icelandic Viking Horse!
We are proud of our Viking heritage, of our Icelandinc viking horse and we celebrate it! The Icelandic history and its Sagas are a central piece of our present culture. Not only do we still celebrate the “Þorri” in February, which is a celebration of light but also in our daily language do we refer to our Sagas.
Efri-Úlfsstaðir, our farm, means in Icelandic “Wolf´s Place” and what better way to represent our farm than the old ruin of Fenrir, son of Loki. The most powerful force in Valhalla, the only thing that could possibly defeat Óðin – Ragnarrök!
Storytelling is a great part of our traditions and our greatest cultural treasure are not material things, like treasures or great palaces, but our Sagas! Not only do the Sagas give us insight into the lives people had in Iceland during the Viking period but they also are the main historical source for all of Scandinavia during the Viking period.
A living history
Efri-Úlfsstaðir, our farm, is located right in the center of our greatest Saga; BrennuNjáls Saga. Arriving at our farm you will be a part of our history and you should also feel like a part of it. When we ride our horses, we are riding a 1000-year-old track that the Vikings used to ride. We drink from the same river and we look at the same mountains as the Vikings did.
The horses are the foundation of all our tours but our Saga, food, and insight give you a very special experience not to be found anywhere else.
