Sheep Round up - 5 days
Join the farmers in this great autumn adventure – sheep gathering. Every autumn the free grazing sheep are rounded up in the highland, collected from the farmers and driven to their local valleys. From Bjargshóll Farm in the North we follow good riding tracks. Ride along green valleys and rivers.
When you participate in the Round Ups you are experiencing the Real Thing! You will be one of the group to herd and sort the animals. Of course that means long hours outside in sometimes cold weather. Iceland in autumn has many colors and types of weather. Anticipate to be in golden sunshine one moment and to ride in rain and even sleet during the next.
We therefore recommend to dress well during these tours, to bring long woolen underwear and lots of woolen socks and gloves. It is also good to bring some quick energy supplies like chocolate. A warm rider is a happy rider!
