The Snæfellsnes peninsula located in Western Iceland is often referred to as “Iceland in a nutshell“ due to its diverse landscapes and wide array of colors. As we embark on our journey, we encounter the full spectrum of Iceland's colours: traversing emerald valleys, crossing ebony lava fields, tracing the azure coastline, and venturing along the gilded sandy shore. Our expedition commences beyond the village of Borgarnes, where we cross a river en route to the ancient Grímsstaðir farm. Our path leads us into the captivating untamed wilderness characterized by volcanic landscapes and craters.

Later we arrive to one of Iceland's lengthiest beaches - boundless ocean on one side, towering mountains on the other, and the enchanting Snæfellsjökull Glacier – famously featured in Jules Verne's novel "Journey to the Center of the Earth" – lying before us. 

During several days of our journey, we'll have the opportunity to ride along the shoreline, accompanied by a group of freely roaming horses.
