Summer Farewell


Summer is still trying to defend its position and the days at this time of the year are often wonderful sunny, but a touch of autumn is already in the air. During this tour we bring back home the herd to Grýtubakki, but with a little detour into the breathtaking valley of Flateyrardalur.


Day 1

Our guests are picked up in Akureyri in the late afternoon. A thirty minutes’ drive will bring us to the farmhouse Grýtubakki. After dinner details about the following days will be provided. Overnight stay at Grýtubakki.


Day 2

After breakfast, we drive to Fremstafell where we saddle our horses for the first riding excursion, which takes us alongside the river Skjálfandafljót. Today we do not ride with the herd.

Dinner and overnight stay at Grýtubakki.

Here the horses stay overnight and we drive back to Grýtubakki, where we will have dinner and sleep.
