The Icelandic Farm Animals
The Icelandic Farm Animals program gathers three farms located in Skagafj÷rur, where you can meet the Icelandic horses, sheep, and goats.
The main purpose is to show another side of Iceland, far from the mainstream touristic attractions, by inviting visitors to immerse themselves in Icelandic farmlife.
Everyone is welcome to visit the farms, take part to the activities, and also join the Summer treasure hunt that will show you the best of the area!

Hi, I┤m EydÝs.
My farm S÷lvanes is a traditional sheep farm where I live with my family, our 300 sheep and other farm animals.
We offer cosy accommodation in the Old Farm House, and meals of our own produce.áWe also have hiking paths with stunning views right on our doorstep!á
Daily visits to the sheep barn for our guests and others available on request. I would be happy to introduce the Icelandic settlement sheep to you.á
Welcome to S÷lvanes!
Hello I┤m Sigr˙n Helga, participating with my farm Stˇrhˇll in the project äThe Icelandic Farm Animalsô
I am an artist, living on the small farm Stˇrhˇll with my big family, a group of pretty and rare Icelandic Settlement goats, sheep, ducks, hens, horses, dogs and cats.
In my art gallery R˙nalist you will find my own handicrafts made of natural materials from my own farm, like Icelandic wool, goat hides, horns and bones. I also offer wool and sewing workshops.
We are members in the Icelandic farmers association äFarm Food Directô (Beint frß břli) who sell their food and products directly to their customers. We offer meat from Icelandic lambs and goats, eggs from ducks and the Icelandic settlement hens.
I suggest visit our friendly settlement goats that are in danger of extinction, see the ducks look at you with one eye, hear the rooster crow and watch the dog trying to catch the cat.
Visit us, get a good experience and find yourself a real Icelandic souvenir! Welcome to Stˇrhˇll!áR˙nalist GallerÝ - Stˇrhˇl
Hello I┤m Evelyn Ţr, participating with my farm Lřtingsstair in this project.
I┤m German but I have been living here on the farm since 1995 and my life is dedicated to the Icelandic horse.
Lřtingsstair is a horse and holiday farm and I live here with my family, a big herd of horses, sheep and dogs. We offer accommodation in wooden cottages and horseback riding tours.á
I sometimes have some extraordinary ideas and in summer 2015 a turf house -a stable- was built on the farm.á
I suggest visiting The Old Stable and listening to my program Horses & Heritage which I have designed to introduce to the story of the Icelandic horse, its history and the services the horses have done for their people and the country. Welcome to Lřtingsstair!
