Q: We would like to participate in the göngur/réttir (horse or sheep roundup) for up to four days. However we can’t find sufficient information to plan a trip.

Can you send us information about such tours or who we can contact for details?



A: Brekkulækur in Miðfjörður, Northwest Iceland, offers farmhouse accommodation and roundup tours, which take place in September.

Farmer at Brekkulækur, Arinbjörn Jóhannsson, runs the tours where participants take active part in the horse and the sheep round up in Miðfjörður. Board and lodging are provided at Brekkulækur. Active participation in the roundup requires good riding skills, but it is also possible to arrange participation for non-riders.
