Saddle up and immerse yourself in the tranquility of the countryside on a horseback riding excursion -OR- grab your camera for a photo tour with Icelandic horses. Learn about these friendly and photogenic animals as you walk with them alongside beautiful vistas. En route to Húsavík, stop at one of Iceland’s most historic waterfalls, Goðafoss, where Iceland was converted to Christianity in A.D. 1000. Later, settle into your farmhouse in the Icelandic countryside. This family-owned property holds an environmental gold certification.

During your time here you will have a chance to explore the Dimmuborgir lava formations, a field of ethereal rock structures. Continue on to Skútustaðagígar and get up close to rootless cones, or pseudo-craters, which were formed by lava coming in contact with Lake Mývatn’s waters rather than a volcanic eruption. Next, reflect on the sights of the day while taking a relaxing soak in the Blue Lagoon of the north, the Mývatn Nature Baths. Enjoy the warm, mineral-rich geothermal waters of this man-made lagoon.
