The Icelandic Horse
Our passion for the Icelandic horse is ever growing and the resort owns a large herd of purebred Icelandic Horses consisting of breeding, riding and young horses with high quality bloodlines.
The Icelandic Horse is an extraordinary animal, still possessing the natural five gaits and traits of the old European Viking horse. They have the three basic gaits: walk, trot and gallop, and two extra gaits: tölt and pace, of which the tölt is most popular. In tölt, the horse moves its legs in the same sequence as in walk. Tölt is a very comfortable and pleasant gait that can reach a high speed. Pace is a gait of speed and power in which both legs on either side move in unison. Pace provides a very spectacular sight and a magnificent experience in the saddle. Because the Icelandic Horse has had no carnivorous enemies, it has an ingrown friendly nature. This contributes to its easy temperament and unafraid personality. The rough terrain and nature in Iceland has led to its amazing stamina and hardiness. The height of Icelandic horses is 13 - 14.2 hands. These small but strong horses can easily carry a rider up to 220 lbs.

Experience a ride on the Icelandic Horse - it's an unforgettable ride!
