B&B’s and guesthouses are all-pervasive, and many are privately run. They are generally smaller and more intimate than hotels and more comfortably priced.

Mr.Iceland
Horseback ride and dinner with a Viking! Efri-Úlfsstaðir, our farm, is located right in the center of our greatest Saga: BrennuNjáls Saga. Arriving at our farm, you will be a part of our history, and you should also feel part of it. When we ride our horses, we ride on 1000-year-old tracks that the Vikings used to ride. We drink from the same river and look at the same mountains as the Vikings did. The horses are the foundation of all our tours, but our Saga, food, and insight give you a very special experience not to be found anywhere else.
