Stóra-Sandfell Horse Rental

- Cottages

The horse rental/The travel service at Stóra-Sandfell is located 17 km. south of Egilsstaðir, by highway 95. When driving over the road called Öxi (which is the shortest route) or Breiðdalsheiði, the roads lie between Höfn and Egilsstaðir.

We offer horseriding, 1-2 hours tours, through Sandfell's forest and nearby. All of the horseriding tours are monitored by a guide. We always try to make sure we find a horse that suits each and every rider well. Before each trip we go over all safety rules and do some practice rounds inside a fence.

There is no fixed time for the riding tours, so all tours are planned individually. The minimum number of riders is 2 for each trip and the maximum is 10 riders.

The accommodation is open from May 15th – September 15th.
The horse rental is open from June 1th – September 15th.
The campsite is open from June 1th – August 31th. 

For further information and reservations, please go to our website or contact us through phone or e-mail.
