In the old days, Icelanders had the custom to let their sheep free during the summer days. Well, round-up is an old Icelandic tradition of riding horses up to the highlands in order to bring the sheep back. Back in the past it was a way of living, and today it is a fun activity. It all starts with locals going uphill to return their sheep back home and it ends with dancing, eating and drinking. In the past, some couples would get married during the round-up. Visitors are welcome to join the event or just to take a look and learn something new. This event happens in early September, so join in, and bring a ring, just in case.
