Meeting place is about 45 min from downtown Husavik. It is right across from a visitor center which makes bathrooms easy. Guide and horses were fantastic. Highly recommended!

What a lovely tour! I havent been on a horse in 30+ years so was a little nervous but Charlotta and her assistant were very reassuring and gave clear instructions on how to handle the horse. The tour was really special. I had already had a walk around Asbirgi but the route we took on the horses took a different one and it was magical. It felt like we were the first people ever to ride through the canyon, so natural and undisturbed it was. We saw a pair off nesting Falcons, super rare, short eared owls and ravens which really added to the atmosphere plus lots of information on the canyons formation both scientific and from folklore. I could have ridden around there all day! Highly recommended! (Posted on 22/01/2019)
