Arctic Horseback Expeditions

Equipment List

This equipment list is purely a guideline. Please be aware that our route is between the North Atlantic and the Drangajökull icecap, where the weather is unpredictable and can quickly change from sunny T-shirt temperatures to freezing rain or even snow on the glacier, so you need to be prepared for these conditions.

In addition, please keep in mind that riding clothes that have been in contact with horses out of Iceland need to be washed and disinfected pre-entry to Iceland. You can get further information on this at the Icelandic Veterinary Authority.

All your belongings should be packed in waterproof bags and need to be as small as possible as they are carried in saddle bags on your own horse.

Last but not least, don’t forget a sense of humour!
