Come to the horse breeding and training farm of Gauksmýri, in the famous breeding region of Húnaþing-vestra, to learn about the wonderful Icelandic horse.

Standing on a hillside, the farm offers up spectacular views reaching all the way to the Icelandic highlands. You’ll be introduced to the Icelandic horse here, with a chance to learn about its many quirks and traits.

After your visit to the stables, you’ll sit down to a warming Icelandic soup served in the conservatory dining hall.
