At Skálakot, the emphasis is on fun and hard-work, meaning your family will enjoy a holiday alongside some unique local experiences. This is a luxury boutique family-run farmhouse with 14 bedrooms and decorated in an Art Deco style throughout. With around 100 horses on this working farm, the staff are professional equine trainers and incurable nature lovers who will suit your trip to your ability and interests. They are committed to horse-breeding and providing excellent hospitality to guests. After a day’s riding around the area’s wonderful nature, the steam bath and hot tubs are a necessity more than a luxury. Time your trip right and enjoy the spectacle of aurora borealis dancing above you. Everything here will make your family feel at home.
