In September the farmers go up to the mountains to gather up their sheeps that have been up there for the summer grazing in the vast highlands. The sheep are gathered down to the inhabited areas and all the way to the separating place called réttir. There all the farmers meet (and many other people too) and take their sheep home. On this tour we ride to meet the gatherers and help them take the sheep to the inhabited area and to the réttir. Then we try to find Steinsholt’s sheep and take them back home.

This is a great opportunity to experience the real Icelandic country feeling. The tour takes six days of which four we are on horseback.
