 ...that Icelandic Horses have five gaits!! 

 Most horse breeds in the world move    around in walk, trot or gallop, butIcelandic  horses have two more gaits: the Pace, in  which the legs are moved very fast in  lateral pairs, and the Tölt, where the legs  are moved in a four beat rhythm, resulting  in a very comfortable gait for the rider.  Thus, competitions for Icelandic horses  include things such as Pace- Races, Tölt-  Events and Five- or- Four- Gait tests.


ICELANDIC HORSES

Be Inspired By Iceland

Whether you're traveling for relaxation or stimulation for the mind, body or tastebuds, arrive in Iceland and you,re immediately on an adventure.


Iceland entertains day and night, year-round. It's an extraordinary blend of scenic wonders and quirky characteristics created by a unique and highly creative culture, the personality of it's people and a virtuoso performance by Mother Nature.


Every season brings a new dimension. Spring wakens the country's inherent freshness, while in summer Iceland becomes a land of Midnight Sun, where daylight and the action barely wane.

The autumn skyscapes produce yet more colors, drawing photographers from all over the world to record the spectacle of the annual horse and sheep roundup and locals foraging for wild berries and herbs. In winter, try cross country skiing or experience the phenomena of the Northern lights.


​Visit us and we would make you experience this unravelled choice and the warmth of a people who delight in sharing their country with discoverers like you.


Icelanders are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They love a good time, have great senses of humor and if there is a party to be had, they are the best ones to throw it. They are a people of acceptance, and that is so refreshing.

 ...that there are Thirteen Yuletide Lads in  Iceland!! They are dressed in woolens  with natural sheep colors, and they live in  the mountains. 13 days before Christmas,  the first one arrives in inhabited areas,  and after that one after another shows  up, each on his own day. They tease  people, by stealing candles or meat,  peeping through windows or slamming  doors. Their names are derived from  their  pranks. After Christmas, they  return, one  each day, to the mountains  again.


STREET ART


 ...that Iceland's oldest songbook,  Grallarinn, dates from 1594? It is still  being used today, and it is as popular as  ever. Most Icelanders love to sing, and  there are  lot of choirs throughout the  country, both amateur and professional.  And when people get together, you can  expect them to burst into song at any  time!!


  Did you know ?

 ...that there is a website about  Icelanders' family trees, where people  can  trace their ancestry? Icelanders can find  ancestors there from many centuries  back, and it is not at all uncommon for  people to find out they are distant  descendants from one of the first settlers  in the 9th century. Also, you could find  out that your neighbor is actually your  cousin three times remote!!!

Day 4: Golden Circle 

We begin the morning to drive Friðheimar tomato greenhouse and horse farm and then enjoy  a spectacular horse show, showing the different gaits of the Icelandic horse. After the show, we continue to Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most impressive waterfalls. We drive to Geysir geothermal area for lunch. At Geysir geothermal area you’ll see the famous great Geysir and the hot spring Strokkur spouting every few minutes. We continue further on to Þingvellir national park, a UNESCO heritage site and a place of tremendous interest.

Did you know ?

...that situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge,    Iceland is a hot spot of volcanic and  geothermal activity: 30 post- glacial  volcanoes have erupted in therapist two  centuries, and natural hot water supplies  much of the population with cheap,  pollution free heating. Rivers, too, are  harnessed to provide inexpensive  hydroelectric power.


 ...that Iceland is alone among  Scandinavian countries in retaining the  Old Norse system of patronymics as  opposed to surnames. If a man named  Einar has a son named Jón, the son's  name is Jón Einarsson. If Einar has a  daughter named Ásta, her name is Ásta  Einarsdóttir. Women do not change  names  when they marry, so if a married  couple  has a son and a daughter, every  family  member has a different last  name.  Children are often named after  their  grandparents, further adding to the  confusion. The upside is that when you  speak to Icelanders, you always know  which form of address to use. Icelanders  all call each other by first name, no  matter what their social relations. Even  the country's single, slender phone book  is alphabetized by first name.
