Alhestar is a family run business in the small fishing village of Þórlákshöfn, South Iceland, located just 30 km from Reykjavik.

The owner is Magnús Margeirsson, who was born and raised in Skagafjörður fjord—and so were his horses.

Skagafjörður horses are said to be the most robust and most gentle horses in Iceland.

Magnús has been working with horses since he was a boy. You will immediately feel the close relationship he has with his animals when you enter the clean and bright stable and pet his friendly companions for the first time.

All of the horses are suitable for beginners, but Magnús also offers horses for experienced riders.

Magnús' stable is not posh, but it is a sincere and authentic place where safety always comes first. You will be equipped with a helmet and Magnús will personally join you during the first steps of your ride and help you feel comfortable.

After a short instruction on how to handle the horse, you will be taken outside to enjoy the Icelandic nature.
