About Winter Ride and Northern Lights!
Winter adventure - Northern lights and riding on ice!
During autumn and winter we offer great riding adventures from Saltvík farm in the north of Iceland. We make some day rides from Saltvík farm along the coastline of the Arctic Ocean and if possible get the chance to experiencing the amazing feeling of riding on ice at one of the frozen lakes nearby . Iceland in winter costume is truly an adventure to experience!
There is a good chance you will see the Northern Lights in action in the Arctic sky above north Iceland during the autumn/winter seasons. We will do our best to find the best possibilities in the area for watching the Northern Lights when they show up in the evening!
Accommodation is in double rooms at Saltvík farm with private wc/showers facilities in a newly renovated guesthouse.
From late autumn 2017 to early spring 2018 we offer winter adventures from Saltvík farm at the north coast of Iceland! The north part of Iceland is truly one of the best places in the world for whatcing the northern lights during the darker hours of the winter. We make some day rides from Saltvík farm along the coastline of the Arctic Ocean and if possible spend a day riding one of the frozen lakes in the area. The departures have various highlights such as the preparation period for christmas in Desember, the crazy fireworks of the new years night at the very darkest hours around new year in Iceland, In february and march we spend a day at some riding tournaments on ice which is a popular event among icelandic riders.
We visit as well the natural lagoon at lake Mývatn and some other places of interest in the neighborhood such as Dimmuborgir “ the phenomenal lava formations near lake Mývatn and the steaming hotsprings at the geothermal area of Hverarönd.
