Tourist Stamps VI

The theme of the tourist stamps this year is “Tourist activities in Iceland”. Horse-riding. Horse hire companies across the country organize riding tours for children and adults, lasting from a few hours up to several days. Longer tours are designed for more experienced riders. The aim of these tours is to offer travellers a chance of experiencing Icelandic landscapes from horseback. The Icelandic horse is known worldwide as an excellent mount. It is small but very strong and is a horse, not a pony like the Shetland ponies and the Fjord horse in Norway
