Tour 14 – Snæfellsnes: 6 days of riding
This tour in West Iceland gives us the opportunity to experience the wide range of Iceland’s colours – through green valleys, across black lava fields, on yellow sand, and along the dark sea. We begin in Hamar, outside Borgarnes. We cross Langá River on our way to the old farm Grímsstadir.
We proceed into the wilderness and then ride through lava fields into a beautiful valley of lava before climbing up to the volcano crater Eldborg á Mýrum. We ride alongside the sea at Löngufjörur, one of the longest beaches in Iceland, where the riding has to be adjusted to the tides. The view is panoramic, with the sea on one side and mountains on the other. On the last day, we have the magical Snæfellsjökull Glacier before us.
8 days and 7 nights - 190 km
Departures: July 29 and August 6, 2013.
Also note, when we are riding on the beach we might have to ride very early in the morning or late evening, because of the tide!
*Please note that dinner on the last evening is not included in our longer tours.
