Nature´s Treasures and Rider´s Pleasures
2017

A delightful hotel tour that combines riding with a comfortable base at the Hotel Eldhestar in Southern Iceland. There are lots of choices from many riding trails around the Hotel Eldhestar.The tour can be either 5 or 6 days long, (with 3 or 4 days of riding) It starts nearly any day in the winter, and Saturday or Wednesday in summer

The hardest part about this tour is deciding what to do! It’s very flexible, so riders can choose, according to their skills or interest, or even the weather, what they should do and where they should go. There are lots of riding options in the mountains, valleys and river banks nearby, and at the end of each day the Hotel Eldhestar offers the comfort of a hot pot, good dinner, soft beds and private bathrooms, plus the conviviality of a chat in the bar.

You’ll have to pick from among the following possibilities:

* An exciting ride through the undulating valley of Reykjadalur with its unusual rock formations and many steaming hot springs where we also bathe in a gentle geothermal stream.
* A relaxing ride along the mountains Reykjafjall and Ingólfsfjall before lunch. And then, afterwards, there’s time for more riding, or relaxing at the farm!
* A comfortable ride on the grassy trails that go along the banks of the river Ölfusá, and out along its delta. The bird sanctuary there may offer views of many Icelandic birds.
* An interesting ride into the narrow, geothermal valley Grensdalur, where colorful mineral and mountain formations abound.

There are many convenient things about the Nature’s Treasures Tour! It’s available to start on any day when there is room at the hotel for you. It’s flexible enough to allow you a choice of where you’d like to ride most days - depending on your experience, energy, the weather, and whim. It’s comprehensive in that it gives you several nights in the country during the riding days, and it has a night in Reykjavik - so you’ll enjoy Iceland’s beautiful landscape and its lively capital!

*Prices and Useful Details
This ride, which is available as a 5 or 6 day tour, with three or four riding days, runs every day from January until December and can be joined on any day that there is room at the farm. Riders will arrive in Iceland, have a day in Reykjavik then be taken to the outfitters farm for overnight, so you’ll be ready to ride the next morning when the tour starts. You’ll ride for the allotted number of days, have a post ride night in a Reykjavik hotel before leaving for home the next day. Here’s how the four day tour works - if you choose to arrive in Iceland on a Monday morning, you could see a bit of Reykjavik that day, spend Monday night at the farm, ride Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, return to Reykjavik Friday night, and leave on Saturday. This is a great tour to use at the start or end a great Iceland adventure!
