SRI.river.crossing.horses_riding 1181.jpegThe Thorsmork Valley is an area that most visitors to Iceland do not get to see due to its inaccessibility. Only on foot, horseback or with modified vehicles can the beautiful and secluded glacial river valley be enjoyed.

This summer riding trail takes you through magnificent gorges and across the tributaries that flow into the main river. The whole ride covers contrasting landscapes from the lush farming land around Fljótshlíd, into the Thorsmork valley,  the foot of Eyjafjallajökull and to Seljalandsfoss waterfall.

During the trail, accommodation is in sleeping bags in a mountain hut, in guesthouses and farmhouses, and each day you ride on to your next stop. Riding distances per day are 20 – 35 km, with 4 – 6.5 hours spent in the saddle with 4 days riding. Pick up on arrival day is in Reykjavik with transfer to the farm.

Please ask us about arranging connecting flights or to add extra days to extend your stay in Iceland.
