The township of Saudarkrokur and the Skagafjord with Drangey
|Why not try the Icelandic horse in its own homeland? Numerous organisers offer treks in the inland on the mountain plateau between the large glaciers.We recommend a special farm in the North near the shores of the impressive Skagafjord.||
|A group of six nortrekkers
went to the
Skagafjord region in July 1999. The saga
and photos from this trek are now available - click on Iceland99.
horses below are enjoying themselves just below the farm
from where you have the most fantastic view out the fjord
toward the Arctic Ocean in the north and the island
Drangey. This is where the outlaw Grettir survived

in-accessibility of the island, which rises 80 m straight
up from the sea.
