Icelandic horses in 24 calendar motifs

Photographed by Gabriele Boiselle and Kolbrún Grétarsdottier

What makes this calendar special ...

Icelandic horse are of a temperament which is kinder than you have ever come across and yet at the same time hard and relentless. Over the course of centuries they have perfectly adapted to the vagaries of this island in the north. In their manes they capture the magic of the midnight sun and their hooves hover over the black volcanic ash.

Anyone who has ever visited Iceland and ridden an Icelandic horse across the completely unspoiled volcanic countryside will never forget the experience and will hold it in their heart for the rest of their life.

 You simply forget any concept of time and space and find yourself merging with nature. On horseback it is possible to reestablish a sense of inner harmony, you feel the horses' breath and adapt to their movements. You breathe more consciously and deeply, fill your lungs with a beautifully different kind of air and completely amaze yourself about the interesting changes you notice day by day.


Iceland, its countryside, its people, and naturally its wonderful horses, exude a special magic which is virtually irresistible.

Special: This calendar offers you 24 beautiful monthly motifs - you can choose from two motifs for each month! So you can choose your personal favorite motif every month!

It is very important to Gabriele Boiselle and her Icelandic colleague Kolbrún Grétarsdottir to capture the special fascination of Iceland in emotional pictures and to inspire you with this calendar for Iceland and his horses.

Insights into the calendar

Kolbrún Grétarsdottir


All pictures in this calendar were photographed exclusively in Iceland. Honest! I am always happy when I have to fly to Icland to take new photos. It is more than just a country, it is an island that takes you to another world and renews your soul. And the Icelandic horses are the best companions for ever new adventures on this breathtakingly beautiful volcanic island.

But without my friend Kolbrún Grétasdottir, called "Kolla", it would only be half as nice. For many years we have not only been photographing her horses together, but traveling together across the country and visiting many important breeders and stud farms. It's like "coming home" when I walk through the herds with her. Kolla runs her own horse breeding farm with her partner Johann, trains the stallions for the national tournaments and organizes rides for visitors and equestrian tourists who always like to visit the beautifully located guest house with a view of a volcano. And Kolla is what you would imagine a real Icelander to be like: straightforward, pragmatic, effective, always up for fun, energetic and extremely warm - simply Icelandic!
We both put our heart and soul into this calendar and hope to convey our fascination and love for this island and its special horses with our pictures.

Enjoy the energy that flows from the pictures - it is guaranteed to be pure and powerful.

Iceland is pure magic
