A Ride Off the Beaten Track- Kerhestar’s horses will take you to a hidden world
Less than an hour from Reykjavik, you could find yourself preparing for a trip unlike anything you are likely to have experienced before. Just 15 km. from Selfoss, Kerhestar has a stable of 100 horses. They can provide you with a thrilling and memorable adventure to tell your friends about!

Most tourists to Iceland will visit the spectacular sights like Geysir, Gulfoss or Þingvellir (Thingvellir) - sights that will stay in your memory. What Kerhestar offers is an opportunity to see these but, uniquely, also take a ride into a world most tourists will never see and take home an experience that you will never forget!

Where will you ride today?
At Kerhestar, you can ride for an hour or more - 2 hours, a day or go on longer trips of several days. A favourite day ride is down to the nearby Álftavatn, riding the horses through the waters of the lake, surrounded on all sides by the beautiful countryside.

A longer, 3-4 day ride for the adventurous can take you up into the mountainous area of Lyngdalsheiði, overlooking Þingvallavatn (Thingvallavatn) and the famous Þingvellir. You can stay in the mountain cabin used by the riders in autumn when they go to collect their sheep off the mountain plateaux for the winter. (This has been recently renovated and provides a place for a comfortable night’s rest.)
Other rides or trips into the surrounding countryside can easily be arranged. Some rides, in particular the longer (3 - 4 day) trips, require some riding experience.

All necessary clothing and safety equipment is provided for everyone, no matter how long their ride will be. On the longer trips, food is also provided. Sleeping bags can also be provided for those who don’t bring their own.

An ideal choice for children
The Icelandic horse is not as large as its European or American relatives but it has become renowned for its comfortable ride and good demeanour. Whether you ride for an hour or a day, these horses make it a time you will treasure!

The calm nature of the Icelandic horse makes it an ideal choice for children to start learning to ride. At Kerhestar’s horse farm, children can enjoy not only being around the horses but riding them, being led and supervised by an adult for their safety.

What else would you like to see?

For those who have enjoyed a ride and want to do more, Kerhestar also offers trips in coaches or minibuses, depending on the size of the group, to visit the surrounding tourist attractions - such as Geysir, Gulfoss or Þingvellir (Thingvellir)
