In the countryside you will always find something to do - short walks in the area, or walking down to the ocean, breathing in the sea air and watching the birds.
In Skjaldarvik we offer riding tours where you get to know the unique Icelandic horse. The riding tours take about 1,5 hour and lead you into the hills and along the seaside around Skjaldarvik. For children we offer individual riding lessons depending on their knowledge and wishes. And for the experienced riders we offer "Rekstur" Horse round up once a week.
Skjaldarvik is a beautiful location just north of Akureyri. It takes only 5-10 minutes to drive into town to enjoy the various ways of entertainment and sight seeing offered by this lovely place. The distance to many other places of interest is also short and we are of course always ready to assist you planning your trips. Lake Myvatn is just over an hour’s drive away. The Hrisey island is an adventure in it self. The area of Eyjafjordur has many things to offer, it is only a question of what you want to experience.
As with every countryside, you will find animals at Skjaldarvik. Our horses are close by and it is certainly ok to pick up a slice of bread (or two) to bring to the horses to make them happy. Nótt (Night), the dog, is on guard but she is not very good at keeping uninvited guests away because she is kind to everyone. Here everyone is welcome. Dagur (Day), our other dog, doesn´t know many tricks, but he can beg for cuddles like a pro. Real farmers might not be impressed with our “farming” but we like our little nest in nature.
