Diamond Circle - A Real Gem
Spent 12 glorious days in Iceland, including riding the Diamond Circle Tour in Northern Iceland. Saltvik Farm is wonderful and made the riding tour everything it could be & more. Comfortable accommodations, delicious meals the friendliest staff & not to go without saying amazing horses. We rode through some of the most beautiful areas of Iceland that many can only dream of and pictures can not do justice to. Already planning a return trip for next year!!!
Midnight sun Tolt-ally American
Best time so much fun. A once in a life time adventure. Food was fantastic. The group we had. The horses. The staff wonderful!!!!!
Another Best Of The Bucket List To Accompish
You ride Icelandic horses each day for 5-6 days and enjoy incredible scenery, wonderful cuisine and learn about the land of fire and ice from the super nice Icelandic folks that lead the tours. You will want to come again and again to ride the various tours they offer, each one different from the last as you blaze new and old trails from one campsite to another.
Diamond Tour Riding Iceland
Just returned from a week of riding Icelandic horses in north Iceland. It was an amazing experience, seeing the beauty of interior Iceland. The Saltvik team was amazing, from the horses to the food. Thank you Bjarni, Elsa, Hannah and all!
Riding within herd of spirited horses thru ancient landscape
Riding in a sense of the wild on sure footed, spirited horses through raw beauty of landscape. Herd was skillfully yet casually guided. Guides and riders developed genuine caring companionship. Deeply moved in sharing this experience with husband and adult daughter. Came home to our own Icelandic horses as a much improved rider.
