The Northern Lights tour
During late autumn and at the end of winter (Oct-Nov and Feb-March) we offer great riding adventures from Saltvík farm in the north of Iceland. We make daily rides from Saltvík farm along the coastline of the Arctic Ocean.
Iceland dressed in autumn colours is truly something beautiful, and there might be a fresh layer of snow already. In February and March, the north of Iceland mostly has the winter costume on. Riding through the (deep) snow is truly an adventure to experience!
There is a good chance you will see the Northern Lights in action in the Arctic sky above north Iceland during the autumn/winter seasons. We will do our best to find the best possibilities in the area for watching the Northern Lights when they show up in the evening!
We spend our days riding the trails around Saltvík farm and we’ll take a sightseeing trip to the mighty Goðafoss (waterfall of the Gods) and possibly lake Mývatn area.
This tour is suitable for all riding levels.
We also will visit the newly established geothermal bath “Geosea” in Husavík which is a well-deserved relaxation after riding activities and the fresh air in the face on our daily rides.
Optional at extra cost is also a sailing trip from Husavík harbour either for whale watching or even for the hunt for northern lights out in the peace and quiet of the arctic sea!
Accommodation is in double rooms with private facilities at Saltvík farm.
Single rooms can be booked at an extra cost (60 euros extra per night). Please contact us for availability if you’d like to book a single room.
