We will be meeting at Mikki’s horse farm which stands in the highland of Ólafsfjörður. It offers breathtaking nature sights all the way down to the sea and out the fjord. Mikki will show us the farm and introduce us to his animals, but the Icelandic horse is very unique as it is the only horse breed in the world that can perform five gaits (ways of walking). It is small but very strong and will take you on a few hour ride up the valleys of Ólafsfjörður.
When we are back at the far, an Icelandic meat soup will be waiting for us, for dinner. After eating and telling stories, you will be invited to try out the farm’s homemade hot tub or you can bath in the one at the country hut that you will be staying at overnight. It has natural hot spring water coming up from the ground and heats up the hut and the hot tub. Enjoy the silence of the mountains during your stay and be refreshed the day after when heading back in town after a
