This country with it´s totally untouched nature fascinates us. We have full confident for this wonderful Icelandic horses. They are safe on their foot and carry us in a very impressive way. The simple life and the horses are very valuable. A rainy day does not disturb either, we get to borrow rain cloths.
Skálakot has perfect horses and wonderful tölters. We can sit all day on the horses back, enjoy the view and see the loose horses running. You get a clear heart, your thoughts from the daily life goes away. A spontaneous gallop down to the sea, black moon landscape, white glaciers, magic seconds by small rivers – all this brings us closer to the real you.
We love this because we always need to cry when we leave and always needs to check if the big red car still is working.
The guides find the right horse to you and decide the speed and riding way after the conditions. The guides loves their jobs, that you cant forfeit and you see it in their eyes. On Iceland there is no problems and you adapt to the circumstances. And this way of living we always brings a piece of home. They take good care of the horses and us and we just need to crawl down in our sleeping bag and look forward to next day.
