Marie, our guide, was terrific.
Wise in regards to the technical aspects of riding, but also very engaging and hospitable.
The horses were very calm and even tempered.
Property was beautiful.

Best 2 hour ride i've had.
Highly recommend this farm.

Dear Lynda, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Hestheimar is located in ca 2 hour´s driving distance from Landmannalaugar, so you and your family could easily do some hiking there and return to Hestheimar in the afternoon or evening. However, you need to know that you can only go to Landmannalaugar from ca 20.6. each year and until Christmas time on a regular car, but if you are driving on a super jeep, then you can go all year round. Please do not hesitate to contact me again, if you would like to book accommodation in Hestheimar or if you need more information. For you and your family I would recommend to book 2 double rooms in the main building or the Guesthouse, but we also offer cottages.Best regards, Lea Helga Ólafsdóttir, owner of Hestheimar, Guesthouse and horse farm.
