FÁKASEL

Fákasel Horse Park, just under an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, is Iceland’s leading tourist attraction for all things related to the Icelandic horse, and one of the country’s best equine competition facilities. A fun, entertaining and educational place for the whole family to visit all year round.

The 45 minute show, The Legends of Sleipnir, employs large-scale multimedia and special effects to weave together Iceland´s history and old Norse mythology in an exhibition riding which demonstrates the Icelandic horse’s beauty and uniqueness. The result is a magical theatrical experience that emphasizes the Icelandic horse’s special features and pays tribute to its historical relationship with humans throughout Iceland’s history.
