Horses are bred at Húsey, and usually about 80 animals are kept here. The farm offers short and long treks, which makes it ideal for beginners as well.

Our "Holidays with the Icelandic Horse" package includes a one-week stay at Húsey, with excursions on horseback being organised almost every day. You might, for instance, want to ride to the deserted farm of Nefbjarnastaðir. Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of the elves that have lived in the rocks here from time immemorial. Or you could ride to the river and watch the birds and seals. The landscape with its changing moods - the sun-drenched mountain slopes, the clouds at sunset, the mysterious veils of mist and the meadows in the shimmering morning dew - are truly inspiring. Without pressure of time you can ride out.. The staff at Húsey will be pleased to help you to plan your day... Holidays with the Icelandic Horse" are also suitable for beginners.

A made-up bed is included in the price The kitchen is fully equipped to allow you to prepare meals. Please bring a few days' supply of food with you. There will be an opportunity to join in a shopping expedition to Egilsstaðir or to hand your shopping list to someone else. Some items can be purchased at Húsey - and of course the fish freshly caught in the river is excellent. One evening your hosts will invite you for a meal. Depending on how much time you have, you can extend or shorten your "Holiday" as you wish. A few days with a horse at Húsey can make an ideal break if you are touring Iceland, or the relaxing end to your trip, e.g. if you still have to wait a few days before your ferry leaves port. At Húsey you will be provided with a bridle and saddle as well as a riding helmet. You will need to bring riding clothes and boots with you. Please note the import regulations: these items need to be disinfected when you arrive or they must be brand new.
