Horse riding and travelling in Iceland

Iceland is at the top of many riders’ and travellers’ bucket lists. The small island state high in the north captivates with breathtaking, almost extreme landscapes and natural highlights – glaciers, volcanoes, geysers – green meadows, rocks and sea, but also with friendly people, numerous horses and a rich creative cultural scene.

Iceland Lovely Home – a very beautiful book

Iceland – Lovely Home is the title of a book with personal stories of German women in Iceland. Not all of them emigrated to Iceland because of love or because of horses. However, the Icelandic horse has a very high status in its homecountry. The horses belong to the Icelandic culture and every traveller to Iceland will encounter them sooner or later.
