The Icelandic Farm Animals
Our farms are in Skagafj÷rur, North Iceland, 18 km south of the village VarmahlÝ on road number 752. Our farms have a distance of about 1,5 km to each other.
Distance Saußrkrˇkur 45 km, Akureyri 100 km, ReykjavÝk 300 km. Road 752 goes further on to the Sprengisandur highland route. The Kj÷lur mountain track is also very close, just behind the landmark mountain MŠlifellshnj˙kur.
Farmers are always on duty and therefore it is possible to visit us all year around. But to make sure that we all have time to welcome you we prefer that you contact us (via Facebook message or phone) and make an appointment.
You can choose to visit all three of our farms or just one or two. When we make an appointment with you we will tell you on which farm you start and where you go next. You simply drive between our farms and meet us there at the agreed time. The visit on every farm takes about 30 minutes.
- Meeting the Icelandic settlement goats at the farm Stˇrholl and having a look into Sigr˙ns handcraft gallery.
- Meeting the Icelandic horses at Lřtingsstair and visiting The Old Stable, a turf house exhibition on the farm.
- Meeting the Icelandic sheep at S÷lvanes and get to know what makes it so outstanding since the time of the settlement.
- HOW MUCH
Visiting all three farms cost 3.500 ISK per adult. Minimum 2 adults per booking. Children up to 12 years are free of charge.áSingle travelers can ask for an option, don't hesitate to contact us!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOME YOU!

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!
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!
