Pólar Hestar

In the North of Iceland, at the longest fjord of Iceland, Eyjafjördur, lies dreamly Grytubakki, our farmhouse.
Since 1985 Grytubakki is the starting point of a variety of long and short riding tours in an extraordinary landscape.
About 180 horses live with us during the whole year. Curious young horses, mysterious cities of the Elves, a Viking treasure hidden in the ground, attractive valleys, rivers and a colourful world of wonders are waiting for the guest.
We ride through remote valleys to the North Atlantic and with a herd of freely running horses to Lake Myvatn, the famous lake of the midges.
In the autumn, when the first snow-flakes are announcing winter, our guests may experience our new riding tour "Autumn Colours and Northern Lights" - a fascinating tour through the autumnal landscape of Northern Iceland.
The Polar Hestar riding tours are from different length and suitable for experienced and less experienced riders. For further information, please visit our website, www.polarhestar.is.
Let yourself be enchanted by the fascinating world of Iceland on horseback!

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.
