After a long weekend exploring the Reykjavik area and Þingvellir, we returned our rental car, left the Airbnb and headed to the bus station, where we were picked up by the bus that took us to the horse farm. After a 2 1/2 hours drive on a nice Sprinter bus, we arrived at at the Gröf horse farm on Snaefellsness, where we were going to spend the next 6 days riding Icelandic horses along the coast.

The farm is situated on the southern coast of Snæfellsbær, between Búðir and Arnarstapi. Our tour went along the coast eastward for about 50KM (35 miles) and then back to the farm. We rode about 20KM (13 miles) a day and then left the horses in a pasture for the night and were shuttled back to the farm. So we did a fair amount of intense, fast-paced trail riding every day – in amazing and very unique landscapes and along long stretches of beautiful sandy beaches. But we were also pampered with great food, hot tub and sauna and very comfortable rooms every day before and after the ride. Amazing experience!
