We have three wooden cottages for self-catering to rent. In each of our cozy cottages you will find a well equipped kitchen, en-suite, TV with DVD player, deck furniture and a coal BBQ. Each cottage is ideal for a family and can fit up to 5/6 people.
You´ll be at the heart of Iceland´s nature; take a ride or walk, watch horses, sheep and other animals. Relax to the sound of the horses hoof and explore the valleys and breathtaking mountains. Lýtingsstaðir is a fully licensed riding holiday company, operating since the year 2000, welcoming you with a warn hospitality and a personal atmosphere.
The Old Stable: Inspired by the long history of the farm, a horse stable and a storage room were built in 2015. The two gabled houses combine turf, stones and wood, and they are masterpieces of traditional, even if nowadays very rare, icelandic craftsmanship. We want to tell visitors how horses were kept on farms in the old days, and we have a display featuring old tools, tack and other items connected with horses and farming.
