The beautifully situated horse farm Lýsuhóll on the Southern coast of Snæfellsnes peninsula offers a variety of services:

Snæhestar at Lýsuhóll:

8-day horse-trekking tours

Snæhestar organizes very special riding tours, which explore the most beautiful spots of the peninsula by horse and mini-bus in a personal atmosphere. Up to twelve participants are accommodated in homely summerhouses at the farm and in our house. 

The amazingly beautiful landscape with mountains, sea, sandy beaches, lakes, lava fields and last but not least the magically fascinating glacier Snæfellsjökull as well as the close contact to the unique Icelandic horses and people make this riding tour a very special experience!

Short rides:

from 1 hour to a whole day

There is also the possibility to go on short rides along the beach or the mountains and lakes. Among the reliable horses you will surely find your favourite, no matter whether you are a total beginner or experienced rider. Enjoy the great Icelandic horse in its natural surroundings and get to know the Icelandic way of riding and handling horses.

Feel at home:
