Saltvík Comfort

Saltvík comfort is a a tour ideal for families and friends that prefer rather easy riding scedule compared to our longer  higland trails. Daily rides  are  from 3-5 hours every day adjusted to the needs of inidividual riders. 

The trails are in the countryside of the north which are extremely nice and various from rides along the seaside of the arctic ocean and up to the heathlands of the northern farmlands with fantastic view out to the arctic circle and the volcanic landscapes of the north.

We offer horses  for riders at all levels so families or friends at different experience levels can enjoy the same rides at different tempo´s and action if wanted. Daily rides can also be divided in two parts were some riders ride half a day and others full day. 

This tour is ideal for guests that want to have a bit easier and less challenging riding holiday than all the other longer highland tours include and combine the holiday as well with the possibilites of various activities and sightseeings available in the area, for example:  

Whale whatcing tours from Husavik  ( 5 km distance from Saltvík farm) 

Sightseeing tours to Lake Mývatn ( 30 km / 30 min drive away)

The mighty and beautiful waterfalls Goðafoss and Dettifoss are less than an hour drive and the amazing canions and natural parks of Ásbyrgi are also less than an hour drive away .

(optional is to skip the domestic flight and travel on own responsibility to Saltvík farm. This option reduces the price  of 250 euros)
