Description – Horseback Riding With Elves
Elves are very important creatures in Iceland. It has been said that almost half of the nation believes in Elves. They are very powerful as they can decide where roads can be laid and if houses can be built. So why not go horseback riding with them?
On the horseback riding with elves tour, we see some places populated by these special creatures, the “hidden people” as they are known in Iceland. As they are hidden we will not actually be able to see them or meet them but you will, however, hear magical stories that bring these hidden people to life surrounded by beautiful nature. On the Horseback riding with Elves tour, you will first pass the small cleft Alfakvi and the old sheep farm that can not be removed without serious consequences. Some elves are musical; Skjolklettur is the place of the elves’ church, where singing has been heard. On our way to the elfin hill, Einbui, populated by friendly and sometimes singing elves, we also experience excellent riding trails for trying the special, smooth gait of the Icelandic horse, “tölt”.
