Overview

Skorrahestar offers unique horse riding tours in East Iceland. Ride up and over the steep mountains, along the lush green valleys and race across the sandy beaches on well trained Icelandic horses. The deserted fjords and the folklore of the area comes alive through storytelling with an experienced farmer/teacher as your guide. You get to experience our homemade international cuisine with a touch of Icelandic tradition as you become a member of the Skorrahestar family.

After reviewing many different horse riding tours, we selected Skorrahestar because we knew it would give us an experience on a higher level. Normally, we are confined to trail rides regardless of experience. But Skorrahestar asked what skill level do we have after we booked...More

Doddi and Sunna took us on the best horseback riding adventure, complete with beautiful scenery, Icelandic horse dancing, journey across a river, blarbers (blueberries), and lots of laughter. If you want an amazing experience, come here!!!
