Where you’ll be

Árnessýslu, Iceland

Arabaer is ideally situated to experience an authentic, rural working Icelandic horse farm whilst still maintaining relative ease of access to the amenities of the nearest big town selfoss ( the largest town in South Iceland) only 26km away. To the back of the property we have access through our land to the River þjórsá, and we are spoiled year round by breath-taking sunrises and sunsets. Views from outside the house take in some beautiful vistas with the mountain Ingólfsfjall, and volcano Hekla, in the distance. On a clear day Eyjafjallajokull ( The ash cloud causing volcano) can be sighted from the back garden. You may also witness the majestic northern lights whilst staying at the house.
As mentioned before horse riding is avaliable at the farm as well as the opportunity to take a jeep tour to the black sand beach where the river þjórsá is running into the Atlantic ocean.

Hi, I live here at Arabaer with my husband Saevar and our six young children. Arabaer is a busy working farm where we train, breed and sell Icelandic horses. We also farm vegetables including turnips and carrots, this keeps us all busy! I am originally from Scotland and have travelled, lived and worked abroad in several places including New Zealand and Holland before settling in Iceland around 13 years ago. My husband Saevar is Icelandic and grew up around here, we run the business together and enjoy our busy lifestyle with the farm, children, and various pets ;-) We speak English and Icelandic here on the farm.
