Day by day
Pick up is in Reykjavík in the morning. Driving to our farm at Syðra-Skörðugil is about 3,5 hour drive. When at the farm the group will be invited to our brand new guesthouse where we will show you your room and the facilities. When settled we will begin the riding. In our stable we will have some great horses for you to ride. Four gaited, five gaited, riding horses, competition horses, stallions and breeding horses. I can assure you that you will find one that you will love ! After a good day of riding we will have a good dinner and some good chat about our day. This evening you will be offer you to join us at a competition that will take place at the riding hall in Sauðárkrókur. There Elvar will compete in the Champions league of the north.
After a good breakfast tha plan is to go skiing at Tindastóll. (This depends a little bit on the weather). After lunch there will be more riding and also everybody will get a private riding lesson. In the evening we will enjoy a good dinner and do some more chatting.
Again the day will start with a good breakfast at the guest house. In the morning we will continue with the riding lessons and take a good riding tour before lunch. After lunch the plan is to do a little road trip. This also depends a little on the weather but if it is good the plan is to drive to Hólar and see the museum of the Icelandic horse as well as visit the fantastic swimming pool at Hofsós which is at the top 5 list of the best swimming pools in Iceland. We will then end the day either skiing or riding, depends on the weather.
Today again the importand breakfast at the guest house. Riding will be the main theme of this day. As well as the group and individual taking riding lessons we will do at least one or two good riding tours. We are hoping that the weather will be that cold that it will be possible to ride on ice.
