Iceland horse tours are always an exciting experience, spiced up with storytelling, incredible scenery, top-of-the-mind attractions and wonderful cuisine and a history tour guide with an expert instructor.
A Horseback riding tour spiced up with storytelling
There is an old tradition in Iceland for storytelling. We love to tell not only stories of our own experiences but also amazing stories of our history. In the old days, the Icelanders used to gather around the fire during long winter nights and tell tales of the great deeds of our heroic Vikings and their wonderful Icelandic Horses. Through this tradition, our Sagas remained and still live amongst the Icelanders.
Experience a living Saga
As soon as you arrive at the breathtaking and beautiful farm, you will notice our respect for the local history. The farm is placed in the middle of the Brennunjáls Saga stage. Bergþórshol is just across our river and Hlíðarendi the home of Gunnar a few kilometers north of the farm.
The position of the Efri-Úlfsstaðir gives us a unique opportunity to experience the Saga. By riding the Viking trails and seeing different areas, we experience firsthand the scene of Brennunjálssaga.
When you go riding with our very good riding instructor, you are actually experiencing exactly the same surroundings, trails, views, and wind as the Vikings did. Hörður, your guide, has deep knowledge about the Sagas and tells you all kinds of tales of the Vikings on Horse.
The Viking gathering
After the riding tour, you are invited to our dining hall in the stable where we will serve you organic fresh meals. The meals are made up of our homegrown lamb or fish from our rivers and prepared by our amazing cook. We also serve local potatoes and vegetables that are all grown in our area – just like the Vikings did.
During the dinner, the storytelling continues by our people, but we also love to hear the story of our guests that have come to us from distant places.
This makes a perfect Iceland horse tours!
Keeping the Saga alive
Not only will you have an experience of a lifetime once you visit us at the farm, but even more importantly you will become a part of our Saga. This helps to keep the Saga of the Vikings alive for ages to come.
