Eyjardalsá Horse Riding

See Iceland like the vikings did a thousand years ago, sitting on your horse and enjoying the view and the landscapes of rural Iceland. Listen to the sounds of birds, of water flowing and hooves gently tapping on the ground.

Our tours are enjoyable for both beginners and more experienced riders and if our listed rides don't fit your plans we can customise the experience just for you.
Our rides mainly take place along Skjálfandafljót, one of Iceland's largest rivers, where we follow ancient sheep paths that have been formed by the sheep walking the same routes for centuries. You'll be accompanied by an experienced guide that knows the horses, the area and the folklores that have lived through the ages and still live on.

Check our website eyjardalsa.is for more information and booking.

Godafoss waterfall

The Goðafoss waterfall is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters.

In the year 1000 the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. After his conversion Þorgeir threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
