Horseback riding tour – Írárfoss waterfall
This horseback riding tour to Írárfoss waterfall starts from our Manor in Skálakot. Includes all the gear you need for the horseback riding, such as helmet, boots, and rain gear if needed. After a short briefing, we start to gear up the horses as we head out for nature.
We ride along hills and mountains nearby Skálakot towards the waterfall Írárfoss (The Irish waterfall). Which is a beautiful 30-meter high waterfall in a small river running down from the highlands below the glacier Eyjafjallajökull. The name of the waterfall is related to a man from Ireland, called Ásólfur Alskik who lived there at the settlement time of Iceland for more than 1200 years ago.
At the waterfall, you will get the change to take some pictures and enjoy the surrounding before heading back to Skálakot.
Afterward, at the Manor Hotel, you can stop for refreshments and food. It is the perfect place to relax after the riding tour and enjoy some of our local food and refreshments. Although a great first-time experience. Or the perfect tour for people that do not have much time but still want to enjoy horseback riding as well as beautiful nature.
Skálakot is one of the top breeding farms for the Icelandic horse. We have been running horseback riding tours for more than three decades. Therefore we have a lot of experience and always try our best to meet the needs of the people we have for each tour.
