Saltvík Special 2019 “Flateyjardalur”

We are  starting a new Riding-Iceland / Saltvík concept in 2019 !!

"Saltvík Special tour" which will be offered every year but with variations from year to year following new trails and excursing forgotten historical trails.

The first Saltvík Special tour takes us to our promised land of Flateyjardalur . The valley was from the settlements and in to the 19th century inhabitated and there are many historical remains and nature phenomenons sited along the quiet rivers of the valley running along all the way to the arctic ocean at the north coast of Iceland. . One of our famous vikings  "Finnbogi Rammi" was born in the valley  in the  11th century and there are many places  carrying the saga´s of our forefathers through the ages.   The valley is now a stunningly quiet  and extremely beutiful  with high mountains on both sides, rich vegetation in the bottom and stunning view along the excellent riding trails leading our way through the mountains . We enter the valley through the high mountain passing at "Gönguskörð" a secret passing travelled only by courageous travellers of the past.  After spending day´s and nights during our explorations in the valley we use the last day´s riding the soft tolting trails of the countryside until we arrive back home to Saltvík where we spend tha last 2 nights. 

Old riding friends that have been with us on our regular tours have priority in booking this tour as we also aim to challenge our riding and explore trails  not much travelled by horses so it´s important for participants to have experience in varoious situations and possibly rather robust ccommodations at times:)
