Details & Itinerary

Come up with us to the mountains Staðarfjöll to collect our sheep that have been enjoying the summer. Get to know the farm life first hand.

Please note that good riding skills and good physical condition are required for this tour.

Every summer in June our sheep (approx. 1,500) are sent to the mountains Staðarfjöll, that is close to our farm. There they spend the summer raising their young lambs in peace and quiet. At the beginning of September, we go on horses to get them back home before the winter arrives.

This is an amazing adventure and you get to know the Icelandic nature and the Icelandic horse in its best moments. What is most important, you get to spend time with the farmers and get to be a part of the farm life. Be a farmer for a day or two.
