Two-day riding tour for children aged six years and up, who are starting to ride, and their parents. We take a leisurely ride from Kálfholt along the banks of the Þjórsá to Þykkvibær, far away from all road traffic. We provide good, reliable saddle horses, and the young riders are accompanied throughout by an escort vehicle. The first day ends at Þykkvibær with a traditional Icelandic kvöldvaka – a convivial evening programme of storytelling and song. Overnight accommodation in the Þykkvibær sports centre.
Summer Programme (1 May – 30 September) – Treks
All day tours are available for individuals and for groups of up to 15 people.
Tölt treks are designed for horsy people of all ages. On these tours we aim to ensure that our guests experience the interplay of nature, horse and rider. We ride at moderate speed on a variety of bridle paths, travelling with the freedom to stop when we feel like it, to enjoy the moment.
Riding, the great outdoors, fun and relaxation in good company – that’s what makes our Ride of the Valkyries trek so special. As the name implies, these are tours for women of all ages. And they always have a great time on these treks: young and older, inexperienced and more experienced riders, the ladies all bond and have fun as they ride through the splendour of Icelandic nature.
