We continued our journey towards Akureyri and stopped in the town for lunch before heading towards our Horse-riding tour. We went to the meeting point, driving North on the Ring Road from Akureyri, then turning right after 4 km onto road 816 for about 500 meters, then turning right again at Skjaldarvik Guesthouse.
To be honest, I don’t think I will ever do horse riding again. I had blisters on my bum and I got traumatized because my horsie didn’t want to listen to me and was always eating grass on the side :D I had no control over him, it was very scary because he always wanted to overtake other horses. Never again. But at least I’ve tried it :-)
After this little adventure, we took the car and headed towards our guesthouse next to Varmalhlid, driving through a wonderful valley, Öxnadalur.
