Highland Expeditions - Iceland

Kjölur - North to South

4 star rating   12 August 2022

Katrine Hojfeldt who has been on 7 In The Saddle rides. We changed horses twice a day, and not all of them were equally good, but mostly the horse fit perfectly, and the horses were of different levels, and everyone had to be allowed to try different horses.
In addition, all horses were friendly and well handled, most quite contact-seeking and curious.

When we rode from place to place there were changing facilities of different standards (dormitories, four-person rooms, no possibility of a bath, 1-4 showers, 1-2 toilets), but it was always clean and the beds were good.

Super good guide and nice assistants with great horse experience. Good mood despite the rain and always a smile or help when the rain and wind made it a little difficult. Can highly recommend a visit to Hvammur farm!
