Where the magic of Iceland unfolds beneath your feet

Etexam2 ETexample One of the most intriguing aspects of Iceland is the laid back friendliness of the people, especially in the countryside. Polar Hestar Riding Tours is one of those places, where the warmth and unpretentious hospitality of owners Stefán and Juliane are part and parcel of this ideal farm and country experience of North Iceland.

Stefán has been providing friendly and informal riding tours since 1985 right from his home at Grýtubakki Farm, where he has lived for most of his life. You will get a chance to take a look at the more than 100 horses on the farm as well as the 250 sheep that also graze peacefully on the nearby slopes of Kalbakur. More recently in 1994, Stefán was joined by his wife Juliane, who helps him in all aspects of the business – as does their son, Símon, 11, who is an avid horse-lover and up-and-coming farm hand.
