Enjoy the amazing autumn colours and adventure of joining Icelanders gathering their wild horses from the mountains.
In September and October, Iceland changes costume from the green summer dress over to the multi-colour outfit of autumn! It’s an amazing season to travel around on horseback watching nature slow down for the upcoming arctic winter. This is also the time when farmers gather their sheep and horses down from the wilderness where they have spent the summer running around free in the mountains.
This 5-day tour is a combination of a 4-day riding tour where we enjoy the autumn colours and ever-changing landscape of the north, and a visit to the horse roundups “Skrapatungurétt ” and Laufskálarétt where we join the farmers when they drive a herd of 500 young Icelandic horses from the mountains and separate them in the roundups.
