”Travelling is the only thing you buy that makes you wealthier.”
Icelandic horses are our passion and were pivotal in bringing together the families who created Torfhús Retreat. As a result the horses have a special place in our hearts.
We still breed these big-hearted, spirited and hardy creatures and our own horses are to be seen grazing the mossy plains surrounding the retreat. For those who would like to experience the thrill of riding a pure Icelandic horse and the five gaits of which they are uniquely capable, riding expeditions through the nearby hills and forests led by expert guides are easily organised.
Iceland is best known for its extensive glaciers, abundant waterfalls, geothermal pools and breathtaking landscapes. It is however also a superb golfing destination and what better way to experience the wonder of the midnight sun than by playing golf at night on one of the island‘s sixty-five excellent golf courses. Sixteen of these courses are located in the south of Iceland and the golf season runs from late May to early September. During high summer tee-off at midnight and play til dawn for a unique, ‘no-one else has done this‘ golfing experience.
