Icelandic Horses at Saudárkókur

After a drive along the coastal roads via Dalvik and Hosfos, you will reach the Saudárkókur region. Check into your authentic guesthouse and drop off your bags. If you would ask an Icelander where the best place to go horseback riding is, they will certainly say Saudárkókur. So today you’ll saddle up for a one hour horseback riding tour from a local farm at the nearby town of Varmahlid. Explore the surroundings of the farm together with an experienced local guide and the Icelandic horses. It is an incredibly special way to enjoy all the natural surrounding beauty.

Leave Saudárkókur

Your stay at Saudárkrókur is already over! This morning you’ll have some time to explore the area, before hitting the road again, so why not take one more relaxing walk along the coast. Most people head back to Reykjavik from Saudárkrókur. If you have the time, plan in a stopover en route in the West Fjords to discover the thermal activity that brews there.

"Iceland offers so much variety. Whether it's bathing in one of many natural lagoons, heading out to see the wildlife or witnessing the amazing northern lights, you won't run out of things to do! I ticked off a lot of things from my bucket list here."
