The pure bred Icelandic Viking horse is the perfect riding companion for both beginners and experienced riders.
When Vikings arrived in Iceland a thousand years ago, they brought the Viking horse with them. Strong and muscular, yet small and gentle, with great stamina, speed and intelligence, they are the perfect riding companions for handling the rough Icelandic terrain.
They are friendly, willing, docile animals that take obvious pleasure in carrying their riders across grassy plains, up and down rocky slopes, through rivers and over fields of rough lava, offering a unique way to enjoy the splendors and nature of Iceland.
The Icelandic purebred Viking horse controls five gaits while most other breeds only have three or four. The tolt gait is a very smooth ride that feels like gliding over ice. The Icelandic horse is perfect for the beginner rider.
Tours of up to several days, often through the interior of the country which is difficult to reach by car, can be arranged for more experienced riders.
