We had a wonderful time here! I was a little apprehensive about riding a horse again after so many years, especially since I have bad back problems and I am in my late 60’s. I was traveling in Iceland with friends from college and we decided to do this. The people at the Farm are all very friendly, nice and helpful My friends and I all felt safe on the horses and had a blast! The tolt gait is so smooth and it didn’t hurt my back at all! After the ride, the owner served us delicious homemade rye bread with butter. Loved it! We all highly recommend this adventure!

A great insight into the history & importance of the Icelandic Horses. The farm was interesting, the horses lovable (not even a horsey person), the staff friendly & informative, & the best rye bread ever.

We picked up a brochure while driving in the area and decided to stop. Even though it was 5 minutes before closing time, we were welcomed and shown videos about the horses, given a stable tour, and then had coffee and homemade rye bread. This family clearly loves the farm, their work with horses, and having international visitors. It was one of our highlights during a week of wonderful experiences in Iceland.

What a lovely ride! This is a family-owned farm, nothing commercial about the experience. The horses are treated almost as well as the spoiled dogs we left at home, and from arrival to departure we had an unhurried and hospitable experience. I believe Herra was the young lady who took us out -- she was patient with us, especially me, the novice in the group. We had a slow ride along the river down to a hot spring. It was during a snowfall and everything was soft, blanketed, and peaceful. Then we had an informal chat while watching videos on the Icealndic horse and eating their geothermally baked bread with hot chocolate. We all walked away enriched.

We had a really fun time visiting the Sturlureykir Horsefarm during a 2-day tour of West Iceland via Arctic Adventures. The owner of the farm is very passionate about Icelandic Horses, and you learn a lot about these majestic creatures and get up close and personal with them, a “selfie” with them is a treat, such gentle horses. Coffee/hot cocoa afterwards with some fantastic homemade (in a geothermal oven) rye bread. Oh... and did I mention we were serenaded by Tarzan the rottweiler? Visit him now before he gets really big and decides to embark on a music career.
