My husband and visited Iceland back in March. We were very pleased to book last-minute horse riding after arriving in Akureyri. When we checked into our hotel we saw a brochure for Polar Hestar and decided to call and see if they could fit us in that day, and they could! Within an hour the owner of the farm met us at our hotel and drove us about 30 minutes back to his farm. He was fantastic! He took us back and kitted us out in really thick coverall type suits. A lovely German girl was our horse riding guide. It was so beautiful and there was snow on the ground. I can honestly say that in spite of wearing multiple layers with coveralls, gloves, and hand warmers, it was still cold, but so worth it! The scenery was beautiful and the horses were lovely. After the horse riding the farmer took us inside for delicious homemade brownies and tea. Before leaving we had a look at his sheep and other horses. On the drive back he stopped and gave us a little tour of a beautiful old Icelandic church and some turf-covered houses. It was an amazing day. If we ever get back up to Northern Iceland we would love to visit this farm again!
