Gauksmýri Horse Center is located in the valley Línakradalur in West Húnathing county. Gauksmýri is halfway between Reykjavik (194 km) and Akureyri (194 km) on Highway No. 1.
This large working farm near Hvammstangi offers comfortable, modern rooms with or without private facilities. The guesthouse welcomes guests to visit the farm and get an insight into rural Icelandic life. With a horse centre on site, riding tours and lessons are a popular activity, while the hiking in the area is renowned and a common escape for the birders seeking to discover Iceland’s myriad of avian species. Binoculars may be rented for use at the special bird watching house as well, and even novices are encouraged to try their hand at this remarkably addictive past-time.
