EYJAFJALLA HORSEBACK RIDING TOUR
Season: All year around, daily. Duration: 2 hours
Eyjafjalla horseback riding tour is a 2-hour tour where you get to know the pure breed Icelandic horse a little better. You will meet the staff at their stable in Skálakot. There they will prepare you for the tour and you will get the opportunity to know your horse for the ride. The staff will provide you with a helmet and rain wear if you need.
You start riding up the hill towards the mountain behind the farm. After a short climb, you arrive in a small valley surrounded by mountains to the north. To the east, you will see the beautiful mountain Holtsnúpur and the valley Holtsdalur.
To the south, you have an open view over the low land and to the coastline and the Vestmannaeyjar to the south. You will spend a little bit of time there to enjoy the view before you start riding back to the lowland aiming for the Írárfoss waterfall on the other side of the farm.
The Írárfoss waterfall is a small but beautiful 30 meters high waterfall in the small river Írá. It is the perfect place to take out the phone and take some nice pictures with you and your horse. At some point, you start heading back to Skálakot along the road.
This is a great horseback riding tour for both beginners and more experienced riders. The staff will do their best to find the perfect horse for your experience level.
After the tour, you can check out Skalakot's restaurant for lunch or coffee and refreshments before hitting the road again.
