Starting out in 1986 as a hobby of two brothers and their friend, Eldhestar has grown steadily ever since. All year round they offer full and half-day trips,the northern lights tours being the most popular in the autumn and winter. Since Hótel Eldhestar is located in a rural area, light pollution is not a problem;and if visitors are not searching for the northern lights while horseback riding,they could very well be watching them from the hotel’s outside hot tubs. Close to Eldhestar is the literal hotspot Reykjadalur, a very popular tourist attraction.
