About Us

We are a couple who loves Icelandic horses and Icelandic nature.

Combined those two mean for us only one – amazing horse riding tour and also unforgettable memories! That is something what we do since many years and never get enough of. As a result we decided to organize riding tours for everyone who shares our enthusiasm. Our farm is called Breiðanes and its located in the southern part of Iceland. Núpshestar is first of all a small family business and we focus especially on a personal, good service and smaller groups or private tours.

Area around the farm reflects the image of beautiful views, landscapes and it changes with every step. We are close to the longest Icelandic river Þjórsá with great mountain view on Hekla volcano, Eyjafjallajökull also other glaciers and mountains. On our tours you can discover a part of Iceland where ordinary traveler probably never go. Also special trails for Icelandic horsemen, roads which will surprise with beauty of Icelandic nature. Use very old riding patches and be a part of Icelandic nature.


We own quite large number of Icelandic horses, enough to organize excellent trip and enough to choose the right horse for our customer. Well, we follow famous Icelandic slogan say:

Owning an Icelandic horse is like eating peanuts, you can not stop with one!

Our horses is our pride and we love every single one. We hope that you will also love them after you meet.
