Beach riding in Iceland

Snaefellsnes Beach Trail

8 days / 6 days riding from £ 1,970

Riding levels

Each of our trips is assigned a minimum level of riding ability required. This reflects whether there is technical riding required; the terrain to be covered; the liveliness of the horses; the length of the riding days and the riding fitness required.




For novice riders, these riding holidays will give beginners the chance to get used to being in the saddle. In general, a beginner/ novice hasn't learned how to canter and has not yet mastered rising trot. They are able to mount safely and to control a horse at a walk. 



For intermediate riders who are at ease at 2 paces (walk and rising trot and are starting to canter in a forward seat) out in open countryside. The intermediate rider is able to mount and dismount their horse unassisted, use basic riding aids, ride at a rising trot for at least 10 minutes, to change and control the pace from a walk to a trot and comfortably canter over short distances.



For experienced riders who have mastered all 3 paces (walk, rising trot, canter in a forward seat) over uneven terrain. The experienced rider rides regularly, has a good seat and is confident of their own ability. They are able to control the horse at speed and change direction of their horse at any pace and in any circumstance as needed.



For advanced riders who have mastered all 4paces (walk, rising trot, canter gallop in a forward seat) over uneven terrain on all types of horses including those that are very spirited. The advanced rider rides regularly has good physical fitness, has good soft hands and has the ability to gallop for long stretches without getting tired.



For all riders, whether they are novices, intermediate level, experienced or advanced. Each rider will be allocated a horse that is suited to their ability. These riding holidays have a level of difficulty that can be adapted to the capabilities of each rider. For example: working with cattle on a ranch, dressage training, endurance training, natural horsemanship, trail riding orcentre based safaris.

Itinerary

Day 1: LONDON - REYKJAVIK - No riding

Flight from the UK to Reykjavik. Your flight must land before 16.00 to allow enough time for your transfers.

On your arrival into Reykjavik, you must take a FlyBus shuttle to the BSI station (main bus station in Reykavik). Between 18.00-19.00, you will meet your fellow riders and be transferred to the farm where horses and staff are waiting.

Enjoy a delicious meal together, relax and get prepared for the adventure waiting for you in the morning!

Day 2: STORI-KALFALAEKUR - GRIMSSTADIR - 25km riding

After a short introduction to the Icelandic horse and its gaits you will set out riding into the mountains through fertile farmlands. Good riding tracks allow you to fully experience your horse until reaching Grimsstadir Farm - this farm has a proud history which dates back to medieval times. Overnight at Stori-Kalfalaekur in proper made-up-beds, showers and hot tub.

Day 3: GRIMSSTADIR - HITARHOLMUR - 25km riding

Today's ride leads through multi coloured mountains and along low bushy hillsides. Hitardalur is a geological paradise - vast lava fields, soft tracks through ash and the high palagonite montains give the impression of riding on the moon!

Leave the horses at Hitarmolmur and transfer by road back to Stori-Kalfalaekur where you overnight. The hot tub will be ready and waiting!

Day 4: HITARHOLMUR - KOLVIDARNES - 45km riding

Continue riding through the magical volcanic valley of Hitarholmur. Stop at a sheep gathering place Hitardalsrett, from where you can see the legendary troll woman Hit who was turned into stone after returning late from a date!

Proceed west across Hitara river and ride through an area well-known for being the hideout for Iceland's most famous outlaw - Grettir. Leave the horses at Kolvidarnes farm and return to Stori-Kalfalaekur to overnight.

NB> The rest of the itinerary is along beaches which are affected by tides. Your departure time each morning may vary depending on high/low tide.

Day 5: KOLVIDARNES - TRADIR - 30km riding

After re-joining the horses, you start your beach ride on Longufjorur - the famous seashore of the Snaefellsnes peninsular. You can see majestic Snaefellsjokull glacier ahead of you and the horses will be excited and full of joy as you discover the long sandy beaches exposed by the tides.

Overnight at Stóri-Kálfalækur farm.

NB> There is an optional excursion by road along the coast towards the fishing villages of Arnastapi situated directly below Snaefellsjokull. Meet giant Bardur Snaefellsas and hear about historic celebrities like the fartravelled Gudridur Porbjarnadottir and mass murderer Axlar Bjorn. This excursion is at extra cost (c. 4,000 ISK per person) and payable locally.

Day 6: TRADIR - KOLVIDARNES - STORI-KALFALAEKUR - 30km riding

Another day of riding along the sandy beaches. Today you change direction and head back towards the mighty Eldborgarhraun lava field. This is a unique experience, with lava fields and mountains on one side and the Atlantic ocean on the other.
Leave the horses at Kolvidarnes farm and overnight at Stori-Kalfalaekur farm for the next two nights.

Day 7: KOLVIDARNES - STORI-KALFALAEKUR - 32km riding

Your final day of riding on the beach and another new experience - the sand will turn from yellow to black as you follow the outline of the Eldborgarhraun lava field. You can almost imagine the black lava still moving as you head back onto dry land.

The trail ends at Stori-Kalfalaekur farm with a farewell dinner with your guides and hosts.

Day 8: STORI-KALFALAEKUR - REYKJAVIK - No riding

You will be transferred back to Reykjavik for approx. 11:30am. As there is a minimum journey time from Reykjavik to the airport of 1 and a half hours, you should book your return flights late enough to ensure that you arrive in plenty of time.

Tips to local team

Insurance

Cancellation and travel insurance are not included in the above listed price. Please note that insurance is mandatory. We recommend taking out an insurance policy as soon as your trip is booked to cover you in case of cancellation

TIPS

Tips are welcome but not expected. You should tip what you feel is appropriate and you are comfortable with.

HORSES

The Icelandic horse is a part of the history and saga of the country and it's Vikings. It is characterised by it's extra pace - the tölt, which is fast and very comfortable. Some are also capable of an additional Flying Pace, which is similar to trot, but much faster and used for racing. Icelandic horses are small, sociable, comfortable and energetic. Icelandic tack consists of simple snaffle bridles, often with drop nosebands and straight cut saddles similar to English style.

MINIMUM RIDING ABILITY

You need to be a competent rider who is comfortable riding at all paces in the outdoors. You will be riding with a group of loose horses and so experience of riding in a group is essential.

PACE

There will be long periods of tolt along the beaches and sandy tracks. There will also be walking and trotting across more difficult terrain.

TACKING ABILITY AND PARTICIPATION

You will be expected to assist with grooming, tacking and un-tacking your horse. The whole group gets involved in meal preperation.

TRIP CONDITIONS AND REQUESTED EXPERIENCE

You need to be fit and have good stamina for the long periods of tolt, which is a fast but comfortable pace. There are some long hours in the saddle (5-8 hours) and the terrain can be rough. The weather can also be unpredictable.

Experience of riding a trail over several days would be an advantage but is not essential. Riders who do not ride regularly would need to get back into the saddle before joining this ride.

EQUESTRIAN EQUIPMENT

Comfortable Icelandic saddles with saddle bags. Hard hats are mandatory and you will be provided with one if you haven't brought your own.
You will be provided with a raincoat but should still bring your own warm coats to wear underneath.

COMFORT

In Reykjavik you stay in a comfortable hotel in shared rooms.
On the trail, four nights are in shared rooms with beds and linen.

CLIMAT

Contrary to popular belief, the general climate in Iceland is temperate and cool with extreme cold temperatures only recorded in winter. In summer the average temperatures are 10-12c but can be as low as 5c and as high as 25c. You should be prepared for both sun and rain and dress in layers.

Meals

Lunches are simple picnics; dinners are generous and hearty.
You prepare your own picnic lunch at breakfast time.

Support Team

Guide and local team

Siggi and Olof have been operating the Snaefellsnes riding trail since 1987 and are one of the cornerstones of our Icelandic partners. Siggi is renowned for his fabulous horses and Olof will amaze you with her cooking.

Packing list

Important!!
There are some important packing considerations for a riding holiday in Iceland. The Icelandic horses have had no contact with other equine species and are not vaccinated. They do not have any resistance to diseases which are common elsewhere in the world and so it is important to take precautions to prevent the spread of infections.

- You should NOT take the following products into Iceland: saddles, bridles, halters, saddle pads, whips, brushes or any leather products which have been in contact with a horse.

- Your riding clothes must be thoroughly cleaned at least 5 days before departure (riding breeches, jumpers, coats, gloves) and should be washed in temperatures of at least 40c.

- Items which cannot be washed at 40c, such as riding hats or leather boots must be thoroughly disinfected at least five days before departure:
1. Wash in detergent.
2. Dry thoroughly
3. Spray with a 1% solution of Virkon detergent (10g per litre of water)

For more details please visit the Icelandic veterinary authority website: www.mast.is/english/frontpage/import-export/import/ridingequipment

Head
- A riding helmet is compulsory and we recommend that you take your own to ensure a correct fit.
- Sunhat for when not riding
- Sunglasses - with a cord attached so they don't fly off when riding
- Buff or bandana for protecting your neck and face from the sun, wind or rain
- Warm hat for cold evenings/days

Upper body
- Thermals in case of cold weather
- Long sleeved shirts provide protection from the sun or extra warmth
- Down jacket or gilet for cold evenings
- T-shirts
- Lightweight fleece or jumper
- Warm polar fleece or equivalent (plus a spare in case one gets wet)
- Waterproof jacket - rain can be difficult to predict and it's better to be prepared. In the mountains the weather can change quickly

Legs
- Lightweight, comfortable riding trousers or jodhpurs - we recommend riding in them at home before taking them on holiday to ensure they don't rub. Take two pairs
- Waterproof over trousers
- Casual clothes for the evenings (jeans or walking trousers)

Hands and Feet
- Comfortable riding boots. We recommend short boots with half chaps but you may wish to take long chaps. We don't recommend taking your favourite long leather boots in case they get damaged

- Gloves - your hands are particularly exposed to the sun, wind or rain whilst riding

Nightwear
- Sleeping bags are provided but you may find a sleeping bag liner (silk/cotton/fleece) adds extra comfort
- A small camping pillow
- Slippers (you will have to remove your shoes inside the accommodation)
- An eye mask can help with the 24hr daylight

Our Recommendations
- Backpacks cannot be worn whilst riding. We recommend a small bumbag or a coat with pockets so that you can carry small items with you during the day (camera, sunscreen, lipbalm etc)
- We recommend travelling in your riding boots and carrying your hat and some riding clothes in your hand luggage - then if your luggage goes astray you are still able to ride!

Other useful items
- Swimsuit - for hot tubs

HEALTH

There are no vaccinations legally required to travel to Iceland. The country has a very good public health infrastructure with hospitals, good doctors and widely available pharmacies.
The biggest hazard in Iceland is probably the weather, especially when venturing inland along the difficult roads. You need a very sturdy high clearance 4wd vehicle and all supplies like food, water and fuel. Also, watch out for sudden storms and blizzards, even in the middle of summer. Also, after rain, some slow flowing small rivers might all of sudden turn into wide and deep rivers, almost impossible to cross by car. So if you do venture inland and away from the main roads, watch all of these things very closely.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

It is a condition of your booking with Equus Journeys that you have travel insurance which covers you for the riding activities to be undertaken. Your travel insurance should cover you for medical expenses and repatriation. Your guides will require your travel insurance details before they allow you to ride and may refuse to let you ride if you cannot provide them. You should take your insurance documents with you.

TELEPHONE AND JET LAG

The international telephone code is 354
Standard GMT

BUDGET AND MONEY

The Icelandic currency is the króna (Ikr.). Coins come in denominations of five, ten, fifty and one hundred krónur and there are notes of 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 krónur.
You don't have to bring lots of cash, because Iceland is a country where plastic money seems to have been invented and even small things can usually be bought by credit card. If you don't have one, most banking cards of your own country (Cirrus, Maestro logo) will be fine for taking money from ATM's and these can be found in almost every small town.
Tipping is not necessary in Iceland as taxes (VAT) and service are included in the price.

VOLTAGE

220 volts AC, 50Hz. Plugs are two-pin
