Ice + land+horse+viking=amazing!

So before I head home I’m stopping in Iceland for a couple days. I have always heard great things about this place but not really known much about it besides their killer hockey team from Mighty Ducks. So I started a search to find out what to do when I was going to be there. December not the best month. But It will do beacuse they have this:

Viking tour on horseback…Yeah two things amazing in themselves but together well I can’t wait.

Its a little(aka a lot) over my spending budget but I might do a little treat to myself if I can get it all to work out. Because well nothing like a bit of Viking history while riding horses brought over by the old grand men we call vikings.

Here is what the tour has to offer:

We start with an introductional ride into the lava fields surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano to the old Kaldársel sheep corral or to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides, getting acquainted with horses and surroundings. After a nice lunch at the riding centre we head straight into the adventure of exploring the Reykjanes preservation area. Cross the Kaldá River, ride around the old volcano Mt. Helgafell or into the beautiful Heiðmörk Nature Park with all its strange lava formations and the ancient Gjáarrétt sheep corral, made from lava stones. View rough lava fields and look for different formations in the lava, maybe you will be able to spot a troll or two.

Yeah you read it right..looking for lava trolls!
