The Mecca of the Icelandic horse

One of the most historically important districts in Iceland is a sprawling valley of snow-streaked mountains, staggering glaciers, and smiling locals. A population of 5,000 live in this quiet county, but if you listen closely, the gallop of Icelandic horses for which this port is famous can be heard. Welcome to Skagafjordur.

Well known as the cradle of Icelandic horsemanship, it Skagafjordur is the sole county in Iceland where the horse population outnumbers the people. Take in the majesty of the Icelandic horse who, unlike other breeds, has remained pure due to its isolation. It goes without saying that a day spent horseback riding is a must in Skagafjordur, if only for the breathtaking views.

Adventure abounds here, whether you’re keen to white water raft down glacial rivers, bird watch in one of Europe’s most significant bird habitats, or simply take in the glory of the Northern Lights. No matter your speed, Skagafjordur caters to all.

When you’re ready to slow down, step into one of the county’s geothermal pools. Enjoy a bath in a natural hot spring overlooking the ocean, or ease into relaxation on the edge of a waterfall.
