Langhus Horse Farm

OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND.

Our life is horse tours. It's been our passion, all our life. To go out in the nature and be a team with the horse. To see the beautiful places, and sometimes tough landscape, that molded our beloved Icelandic horse. To have the companionship of other horse lovers, and to just live and breath the fresh air in the nature, and feel the rhythm of life.

We offer guided horse tours with one of us, the local farmers at Langhus farm, or our assistant guides. We have well trained horses, steady and obedient, they are our family and work horses, and some of them have been used for competitions, they are happy, well taken care of, and live a fulfilled life. We take the time to match you with the right horse for you, and to give good instructions about riding so you can enjoy the tour better. We keep this on a personal level, so people can see the Icelandic nature, the background of the horses and what made them what they are (the sometimes harsh and sometimes wonderful nature, the breeding, the people and the culture), get lessons if they want, get to know excellent horses and visit an Icelandic farm on the real countryside.

We have several tour options to give ideas. But like when travelling friends are planning a trip, you can design the day tour with us. You choose with us which way you want to go, on what kind of horses, how long, how challenging. Just feel free to contact us and we make something wonderful together, and more important, have fun. Sometimes people also book more than one day tour. On our website you also find information about what accommodation is in the neighborhood, ideas about what to do when not riding etc.

Our groups are usually small and at the speed and difficulty that fits our guests. But if you have a bigger group, then we can now accommodate groups of 20 beginner riders, and 25 if some in your group are experienced. We also have programs for even bigger groups than that.

Also, it always takes a few minutes extra to prepare you for the tour, and it's not fun for you to be in a hurry. We do a little riding lesson before the tour itself starts, so if you are beginners you learn a bit about how to ride, and experienced riders learn how to ride the Icelandic horse. That is helpful and fun for everybody. So, the whole visit/experience here can easily take 30-90 minutes more than the tour itself. On the other hand, if you are very experienced and on a tight schedule we can do the whole process in a fast way and focus simply on the ride itself.

Animal welfare is also a priority for us, each horse never goes on more than 1 tour per day, and we give them at least 2 days off per week. They also get at least 2 months of vacation every year. They have big grassy pastures to roam on and top quality hay in the winter time. They live a very natural life in big herds.

Eco-consciousness is also a priority on our farm, to minimize trash, pollution and strain on nature.

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.
