I booked the extended seaside Tour and it was so awesome.
The weather was great and my guide Elena was so nice and helpful. The horse was calm and I felt safe although my last ride was some years ago. The landscape on the extended Tour is awesome

Beautiful views while riding

A fun couple of hours riding the Icelandic horses from above the fjord with sweeping views to along a black sand beach. An easy ride with an option to trot them if you want.

Perfect afternoon near Husavik
Jun 2021
Great seaside tour. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and let us pick the level of activity we were comfortable with. We experienced the smooth Tölt gait a few times. Very scenic area near the ocean and through the lupines.

Exceptional Experience
Jun 2021 • Solo
I just returned from a 1.5 hour tour riding Roomba. It was on my bucket list to ride an Icelandic horse.

Since I had done much riding before and there was a group of inexperienced riders, a guide took me out separately. We got to trot and gallop on the edge of the sea and the beach. It was just extraordinary.

Thank you for taking the time to make my bucket list item so special.

Fantastic tour on lovely Islandic horses
Jul 2020 • Family
We started with the seaside tour and came back the same week for another fantastic tour. Two of our children (8,9 and 10 years old) had never been on a horse before, but they were assisted by very friendly and experienced staff. At the end off the 1,5 hour seaside tour the kids felt very confident on the back of the horses. With compliments to our guide Isabel. (what also helped is that she speaks dutch). And of course the very friendly and lovely Islandic horses!
We therefore went for the second time, and did a tour through the fields. It was an amazing tour in the beautiful fields near Husavik with stunning views over the Greenland Sea and the mountains of Iceland.
We recommend these horse tours to families with children. The e-mail contact beforehand was handled very well by the staff.

The seaside tour

We took the one hour tour. And although the weather was very cold and rainy, we really enjoyed the ride. The beautiful horses, and the extremely nice and informative guide. It was a beautiful tour.

Diamond Circle = Trip of a Lifetime
Jul 2019
This was by far the coolest thing I have ever done. Mieke, Anna, Jamie, and Yvetta(spelling?) our guides were amazing/inspiring on this trip! And, there are no words to describe the horses.....gah! They were the most beautiful creatures I have ever seen! Every horse I rode was easygoing undersaddle and either a sweetheart or goofball while on the ground. The scenery changed everyday - it was awesome to ride through the different landscapes.

What a magnificent trek. Spent four days in fantastic weather riding to Ásbyrgi and back. The scenery was breathtaking and history around every corner.

Riding Iceland "Towards the Midnight Sun Tour" was my dream riding trip!
Jun 2018 • Friends
I own 2 Icelandic horses and it has always been a dream of mine to ride the Icelandic horses in their native country of Iceland. My best friend shared that dream and we heard about a tour in late June of this year with like minded and aged ladies so we signed up for a 6 day of riding in Northeast Iceland by Husavik. We had no idea what to expect but Saltvik Farm was a well run, comfortable facility. The food was plentiful and amazing, the staff so friendly and fun and the horses among the best I have ever ridden. The views each day of the ride were truly breathtaking and tolting just makes you happy...at least it does me! It was one of my bucket list items and I want to go back. Bjarni, his wife Elsa and her sister Hannah were gracious, accommodating hosts. I have forged new friendships that will last a lifetime. Well done Saltvik Farms, I am hooked! I highly recommend one of their tours or a day ride, the view of the bay and Artic Ocean will never be forgotten.
