Horseback riding, a day full of adventure in the nature. The impressive panorama of the Skagafjörður mountains will accompany the riders all day long.

A day of spectacular scenery awaits us.  We set out from the Himnasvalir guesthouse to Goðafoss waterfall.

We will pass Europe´s largest bird sanctuary at Lake Mývatn.

We will see the mythical lava park Dimmuborgir and visit Hverafell mud baths.

On ring rout to Askja (f-88), drive Grafarlönd and head northwest to the magnificent mountain Herðubreið and from there to Askja. Askja is a caldera in Dyngjufjöll mountain.

In Askja we will see Lake Öskjuvatn and the crater before driving back to Himnasvalir guesthouse.

Have a swim in Grettislaug natural hot spring, go see fishing and visit Drangey island an adventure for itself. The island is a pearl of nature in the middle of Fjord Skagafjörður. the island is a sheer sided precipitous volcanic tuff 180 m high and hence provides excellent views over the whole fjord. The birdlife is diverse.

River rafting on the West or East Glacial River. Choose between Whitewater or family rafting.
