How to reach us
Iceland is easily reached by air. The international airport is Keflavik which is in the South West of the country about 40 km from Reykjavik. An airport transfer bus service called the Fly Bus runs between the airport and Reykjavik bus terminal (BSI). Direct flights from New York City, Boston, Minneapolis, Orlando, Baltimore, San Francisco and most major European countries are available from Iceland Air.
Another option of Getting to Iceland is to take the low cost airline Iceland Express which flies from Copenhagen and London (Stansted) to Keflavik. It gives additional service during the summer months to Frankfurt Hahn, Berlin, Friedrichshafen, Alicante, Gothenburg and Stockholm Arlanda. New connections have been added in 2007 from Copenhagen directly to Akureyri. Additionally, Getting to Iceland will be much easier as British Airways offers flights from London and SAS from Oslo.
Getting to Iceland by boat is another option though it takes longer than by plane. However, this means of communication has the advantage of allowing a tourist take his own vehicle.
The company Smyrill Line operates between Denmark and Iceland with stop-over on the way North on the Faroer Islands.
Landing-place in Iceland is Seydisfjörður in East Iceland. From there it takes about 4 hours to reach the capital of Northern Iceland Akureyri.
Once in Keflavík, the international airport from Iceland, you have to take the Flybus to reach Reykjavík City and the bus station BSI. From there you can take the bus heading on road no 1 to Akureyri. This journey takes about 6 hours. In July and August you also have the possibility to choose the bus via Kjölur the highland road. This journey takes you up to 10 hours.
Would you like to fly then you have to take a little shuttle bus from the bus station in Reykjavik or a taxi to reach the internal airport. The flight to Akureyri takes about 50 minutes.
Do you have plenty of time? Then hire a car and drive North!
Pick-up for all our guests taking part in the scheduled and longer riding tours is in Akureyri. As we try to take care of the environment, we organize – if possible – only one transfer, collecting all guests for one special tour.
Would you like to join one of our shorter riding tour ( one hour up to one day) and are traveling on your own car or a rental car, then please follow these instructions:
From Akureyri you drive direction east (Myvatn/ Egilsstaðir) on road no 1. After about 15 minutes you turn to the left into road no 83 ( Laufás/ Grenivík). You follow this road for again about 15 minutes, passing the famous turf houses of Laufás and the church. Cross the river Fnjóská and turn once again to the left direction Grenivík. After a few minutes you will find our farm to the right side. It is marked with big letters. Pólar Hestar.
