This winter has been hard. Not only has the farm seen such a growth in winter riding tours but the weather has not been all that great… terrible in fact.
But there´s an upside 🙂 Spring is almost here and we´re looking forward to it. We have a lot of work in the coming months. Half of our herd has been on their winter break. A seven month vacation of just eating, realxing and being horses. Soon we´ll round them up to the farm and get them ready to take over from the ones that have been stabled this winter to give those horses a break.
When this is done it´s time to fix things winter broke, a neverending circle 🙂 Roofs were damaged in the big march storm and the barn will undergo a major fixing up this summer. Fences will need mending and riding trails will need some love as well. Vehicles need tending and then the stables will see some changes late summer.
The fun never stops at Laxnes farm and we´re determined, as always, to make this year even better than the one that came before 🙂
Due to the popularity of the Blue Lagoon lately we recommend making reservations for the Blue Lagoon combo tour with at least a few days advance.
The new laxnes.is site is almost fully formed offering language selections in english, german and swedish with more coming soon!

Winter season is here yet again so just a quick reminder to bring warm shoes and socks and a pair of good, warm, waterresistant gloves for your riding tour on the Icelandic horse. Toes and fingers freeze first 🙂
Winter is almost here and we´re working hard to get everything ready. Our horses in Viðey island are being transported back to “the mainland” and will head directly to their winter grazing area. Next we´ll sort our herd into two groups like always where half will get winter shoes and the others will join our Viðey herd on a nice winter long vactation.
With the weather getting colder it´s important to dress properly for our tours. Riding the Icelandic horse in wintertime is a lot of fun, particularly in fresh snow but it can get cold so dress well! While we have winter overalls it´s very important to have good socks on and a pair of warm gloves… toes and fingers freeze first after all 🙂
Horseback riding in Iceland in the winter season is like nothing you´ve ever done and we´ll make sure you´re warm while you´re out.
This is a limited request tour to our 12 of june 2014 departure lasting 2 days.
Ever since we put up the new laxnes.is site, which includes this blog the comment system has been bombarded by spammers. The idea was that our visitors could leave comments which we could approve and post on the site. We wanted everyone to have the chance to talk about the Icelandic horse, our riding tours, the farm… even our loveable dog.
The reality however is that spammers hit the comment system with over 100 comments a day and the work of actually finding a relevant comment takes way too much time. The site will be getting some updates soon and with that the comment system will probably be shut down. We will however try and make our facebook page more obvious to visit directly where visitors are encouraged to write comments or ask questions.
