Whales and Horse Riding

Enjoy the stunning Icelandic nature both at sea and on land with this combo tour of whale watching and horseback riding around Húsavík.

The Saltvík horse riding tour

The Saltvík tour offers a nice ride over soft trails along the hillside behind the farm, from where we’ll have a nice view over Skjálfandi bay and the mountains on the other side. The trails partly lead through sheltered blueberry fields, which provides a great, peaceful atmosphere.

This tour is suitable for beginners and experienced riders, as well as families with children from the age of 8 yrs. For the ultimate experience, we keep the groups small (10 – 12 persons). Saltvík’s horses are strong, safe and experienced. A guide from Saltvík leads all tours and gives necessary information about the ride before the tour starts.

The tours starts inside the ridinghall at Saltvík farm. Upon arrival at the farm you can drive up to the stable/ridinghall where you can park your car and will meet your guide preparing the horses inside.
