Fjallahestar is a small family-run horse riding tour company based near Siglufjörður in North Iceland. They offer a variety of riding tours for beginners as well as the experienced riders, both for individuals and groups. Their horses are friendly and have been trained specially for riding in the Mountains of Tröllaskagi.

Sauðanes surroundings offer a variety of excellent riding paths in the Mountains where our guests are surrounded by beautiful landscape and nature. You can decide the pace and/or the route. Tours begin at Sauðanes and guests can be picked up in Siglufjörður if they are staying there. Although you are not in a good walking condition you can always ride a horse. It’’s the perfect way to get enjoy nature, experience the variety of the landscape, the culture, and the history.

Most of their tours are best suitable for experienced riders. The landscape is rough and the pace is fast. On longer tours where you ride through the mountains are not for beginners and it is strongly recommended that riders have some experience to be able to enjoy the tour to the fullest.

Lunch bags, i.e. food and drinks, are included in the day tours that are over 3 hours but most of their tour range from being 3-6 hours long. They also offer multi-day tours and we especially recommend the sheep roundup tour. In this tour, you are offered the unique experience of participating in the farmers’ roundup of sheep. These tours are seasonal and are only available in September.

Had a fun day since we arrived in Siglo and were able to take us in on short notice. It’s a family operation and it was great! They were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The horses were gentle and fun. The view is incredible and it was the perfect amount of time.
