We are riding through a beautiful landscape, sometimes through water, on beaches,  up  on the mountains and beside rivers. In some tours we are even riding through the sea. When we ride we have  a  big loose herd  with us ( it is usually 60-90 horses in the herd ).  A group of riders are in the front, then the loose herd comes and finally the riders who are in the back. A great adventure and a memory for life. You don´t have to be a pro on the horseback but you should not be a beginner. We will stay in a beautiful house with a gorgeous  sea view  called Miðfjörður. The house is  placed  circa 10-15 minutes walk from Hvammstangi. Sometimes we get to see, from the house, whales swimming and playing.

Horse roundup 2019 , 2 oct-6 oct,  FULLYBOOKED

Before the cold and the hard winter strikes, all the horses which are on the Highland have to be brought back home. When all the horses are brought down in the valley they have to be sorted to their right owners. It is not always easy to recognize your own horses, the icelandic farmers often own a lot of horses and there are also many old exciting stories about some confusions and mix-ups. Today it is less of confusions, it is not allowed to let any horse up on the highland without being chipmarked. 

There are not so many places left on Iceland, only some places in the north,  who offers this exceptional opportunity and proud old tradition for the horseherds. The horseherds get this enormous area to move around on by them selves, totally free on the best part of the year. The horses in the herd have to manage, they have to learn about hierarchy and find their place in the population, they learn how to move around on different grounds , such as mountains, through water and so forth. They also have to learn how to find food and water. Stóðréttir in Viðidal is one of the Horse roundups in the north where the horses are to be brought back home and sorted. This is one of the largest Happening during the year, a lot of people return or come to Viðidal, they don´t want to miss this weekend. We are very happy and proud to have the opportunity to offer you this trip!
