Riding and Rambling to Hidden Gems

Our in-destination Expert, Arndis, has worked with local members in the south of Iceland to create this uniquely Icelandic adventure. For Arndis, slow adventures aren't just tours you take, it's a feeling that you get,a feeling of peace and happiness, because of a deeper connection with nature and people. This is exactly what our Member at Skálkot bring. A big lively, fun-loving family who have come together because of an incurable love for nature and Icelandic horses. The unique world-famous Icelandic horse breed combined with both a riding and hiking adventure into the wilds of Iceland, makes this a perfect slow adventure for all levels in Iceland.
