Lýtingsstaðir is a horse breeding farm, located in Skagafjörður/North Iceland, which is also called “the cradle of the Icelandic horse”. The farm is close to the prominent mountain Mælifellshnjúkur on the road 752. The farm has an interesting history which dates back to the Age of the Settlement. Our farm has been open to tourists since the year 2000.
We have around 100 horses on the farm and about the same amount of sheep.
Our cat Putzi is the queen of the house and our two Icelandic sheep dogs Reykjavalla Íslands Sómi and Huldudals Hraundís help out with the work around the horses and sheep, welcome guests and keep their presence in the office (keeping the office managers feet warm during the winter time).
