Horseback excursions and rental
The travel service in Skorrastaðir in Neskaupstaður offers a varity of horseback riding tours, both day tours and longer tours. There is nothing quite like exploring the nature of the East of Iceland than on the back of a horse, riding along the steep mountain hills, green valleys and black sand beaches. The view and the experience is truly spectacular, not least on tours through one of the deserted coves to which no roads lead.
Shorter tours can take from 1 hour up to 6 or 8 hours day's tours. The most popular tours take up to 3 to 4 hours around the Neskaupstaður area.
Guides from Skorrahestar lead the horseback riding tours and tell stories about the place's charactertistics, their history and local folk tales, which has become an essential part of each tour.
