This winter, Icelandair is offering a unique opportunity for travellers to visit Iceland, where they can witness two majestic events: The Northern Lights and the famed Icelandic horses. Icelandic culture values horses, regarding them as “man’s most faithful servant.” It is only fitting that a trip to Iceland would include an opportunity to visit a park dedicated to these treasured creatures, and of course, what trip would be complete without a search for the Northern Lights?
Starting at $825 per person (for double-occupancy accommodations), you can catch a flight from any of Icelandair’s North American hubs, and enjoy a three-night stay in Reykjavik in one of these three hotels:Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura, Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina, or Hilton Reykjavik Nordica . The price also covers the Northern Lights Tour and a visit to the Fakasel Horse Park, home to some of Iceland’s most unique and beautiful horses.
The trip begins with a day of exploring the gorgeous area of South Iceland, with activities ranging from learning about Icelandic cuisine to taking a stroll through the beautiful landscape. In the spirit of the following day’s horse activities, you might even want to try the Lava Horseback Ride!
The visit to the Fakasel Horse Park is an opportunity to learn more about Icelandic culture and the value it places on horses. During your visit, you will watch “Legends of Sleipnir,” a multimedia presentation on Icelandic horses. Afterward, there is an opportunity to meet the horses and to enjoy a warm lamb stew dinner at the Horse Park’s Restaurant. You can also do a little souvenir shopping for unique, handmade items at KronKron boutique.
