Íshestar´s Horse Center was opened in the year 2000 in an outskirt of a small town called Hafnarfjörður. Surrounding the Horse Center is a beautiful landscape full of lava, trees, mountains, and wilderness. The center is only 15 minutes drive from Reykjavik and we operate all of our 1- 5 hour day tours from there.
During the winter time, we have about 70 horses stabled but in the busiest summertime about 150 horses who we herd to the nearby field for a green grass and overnight stay. Our stable is connected to the center with a middle building where we keep our tacks. Our connected stable accommodates up to 54 horses and outside of the stable, we have a large paddock. Just across the street, we have another stable where we accommodate our private tours. That stable consist of a cozy kitchen, two bathrooms, and a shower and can accommodate up about 30 horses. There we have a good indoor riding area as well.
Our Horse Center is perfect for welcoming guests before they head out to their riding adventure and as well as when they finish riding. On-site we have a small cafeteria with delicious homemade sandwiches, snacks, and refreshing drinks which our guests can buy along with their complimentary coffee, tea or hot chocolate. We also offer a delicious homemade lunch from our fully equipped kitchen each day for only ISK 2000. Our guests can enjoy their lunch in our large glass hall with a view overlooking our horses in the paddock. We have a large changing room with warm overalls, boots and rain gear in all sizes so everyone should be able to borrow if it’s cold or raining
On-site, we have a nice and small boutique where we sell Íshestar´s T-shirts, warm gloves, buffs and more. For the youngest guests, we have a small children’s play corner with chalkboards walls.
