With 11 years of experience of organizing longer riding tours, we at Hestahof are proud of our selection of good and stable horses which fit every riders need  and their riding experiences. These riding tours are not with a loose herd  of horses, but one good horse per person per day.

Grazing in Kaldakinn is wonderful for all horses! Plenty of grass on the fields in summertime, plenty of hey, vitamins, minerals, water - in wintertime. Plus all that : Always a great view over volcanos and glaciers ! 🙂 We give all horses medicine against worms and lice, cut hooves and tail, as necessary. We have now horses here, from owners in 4 countries 🙂 For more information and bookings: hestahof@hestahof.is. We look forward to hear from you! Lea and Marteinn, Kaldakinn. ... See MoreSee Less
