Birding in Iceland

Saltvik

For the last 20 years we have been organising highland riding tours where we go out for 5-10 days in the magical highlands of Iceland, these tours we operate under the name of RIDING ICELAND www.riding-iceland.com

At Saltvík we offer riding tours at all levels and try our best to make the experience of riding an icelandic horse in the nature of Iceland an unforgettable experience weather you are a experienced rider or a beginner.

We offer simple but nice accommodation in our old farmhouse at Saltvík.
