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.

The Þingeyjarsýsla District Museum

Byggðasafn S-Þing (The South Þingeyjarsýsla District Museum) is housed within the Safnahúsið at Húsavík and is to be found on the middle floor of the building. This exhibition is called "100 years of Life and Nature in Þingeyjarsýsla" and attempts to shed light on the interaction of man and nature. It is, therefore partly a natural history exhibition.
Opening times:
Summer: 1 June-31 August, daily 10:00-18:00.
Winter: 1 September-31 May, weekdays 10:00-16:00.

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.
