Experience description

Saddle up for adventure on this scenic horseback tour of the Mt. Helgafell volcano. Said to be the final resting place of Guðrún Ósvífursdóttir, the first nun of Iceland and a figurehead of ancient legends, the mossy lava fields around Helgafell are like a lunar landscape. You’ll trot gently along, led by a guide, admiring sublime views of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula and the Bláfjöll Mountains on the horizon.

The tour winds its way to the old Kaldársel sheep corral, past curious lava formations and other majestic scenery. There are many ways to explore Iceland, but few visitors do it on horseback. This heart-stoppingly beautiful Iceland gift experience brings you right into nature, amid the geological forces that shaped this unique landscape of trolls and mysticism. Peace and quiet surrounds you as you take in panoramic vistas not to be soon forgotten.
