    Great proximity to Egilsstadir and surrounding locations. Good base location for 2 days. Loved the views, size of home and watching the farm animals.

    Such a cozy little home with 3 bedrooms and one large living room. There was a snowmobile outside too but unfortunately there was nobody we could reach out to ask if we could utilize it. Lovely views from the bedroom windows and there was so much...

    The house is incredibly spacious and offered amenities like a washer dryer and a hot tub which we thoroughly enjoyed. We also loved seeing the sheep on the farm next door. It was a perfect stay for a big group like hours.

Located 1.9 mi from Egilsstaðir, Finnsstaðir horse ranch features accommodation with a patio and free WiFi. The house consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, lounge and a laundry room. Horse riding tours and a petting zoo at the farm.
Sigurður Hlíðar Jakobsson and Helga Guðrún Sturlaugsdóttir, usually Helga and Siggi, are the farmers and your hosts at Finnsstadir. Helga is a pharmacy technician by trade, but a host and a horseman by passion. Siggi is a mechanic and a jack-of-all-trades. He speaks Icelandic and Horse interchangeably but is more about translating words into action. When you drive down to the farmyard, you will most likely be greeted with the warm and cheerful hostess. That would be Helga, all prepared to accommodate your wants and needs.
