Add To Plan

Leave Akureyri behind for a journey into the rural hinterlands of northern Iceland. You'll stop briefly for photos en route at Hraun in Öxnadalur, the birthplace of Iceland's most famous poet, Jonas Hallgrimsson. From there, you'll travel to Flugumyri Horse Farm in Skagafjörður to learn about the local Icelandic horses, a traditionally sweet-natured breed. You'll also discover the intriguing history of the farm and how its name is connected to Iceland's very first horse race.

The equine theme continues in Hjaltadal, where you will visit the Icelandic Horse Center, an international research and educational facility. After lunch at Holar, you'll drive to the Tannery Visitor Center in Sauðárkrókur, where local designers and craftspeople sell leather goods made in the tannery next door. After free time for shopping, you'll drive on to the Skagafjörður Heritage Museum, which features an exhibition of a turf farmhouse similar to those used in the the 18th century.
