Our life here at the farm is mostly about horses and the nature around us. We offer our guests to meet our horses and even to ride a lesson or ride a 1 hr trail-ride to the riverbank or even take a short drive as a passenger in our horse-sulky.
In the Area, not far away there are more things to do and HERE you can learn about that.
Being a guest in the Gamla húsið gives you the opportunity to visit the horses in the stable, and learn a little bit about the horse, it´s origin and story. Your host Trausti is a very active and popular riding-teacher who works in many different country's. At your arrival, you can order a Stable-visit if it is available at that time. The price for a 30 min group-visit is ISkr 10.000.-
In case our guests want to take a ride in the nature, we offer them a ride down to the riverbank, enjoying the beautiful nature there and our very nice horses. Contact Trausti and ask him if he and the right horses fitting for you are avaleable at the time you are our guests.

Fishing in Ölfusá River
Our farm Kirkjuferjuhjáleiga lies on the riverbank of Ölfusá-river wich is, one might say the mainstream up to the famous salmon rivers, Hvítá and Sog. These rivers are considered among the best rivers in Iceland for Salmon fishing.
All the Salmon that swims from the ocean to those rivers to hedge asvell as the fish that hedges in the Ölfusá it self, swims up the river to get there, so there is much traffic in the river of both Salmon, and trout.
We are among those farms that have fishing-rights in Ölfusá river and some of those who have gone fishing from our farm have been very lucky, catching a huge fish, using either fly or angel.
The landscape down by the river is beautiful and the atmosphere is peaceful.
If our guests are interested, they can barrow fishing-gear by us, go to the river and try it out. This needs to be ordered in advance.
A ride in our sulky
