Horseback Riding - Viking Tour


Horseback Riding in Iceland!

The Viking Tour starts with an introductory ride in the morning. After lunch at the stables we head out again and try the different gaits of the Icelandic horse. Be prepared to ride trot, tolt or a short canter and really experience the versatility of the Icelandic horse.

Choice of route depends on the season and weather.

All customers are provided with warm overalls, raingear, riding boots and helmets in their sizes. Please note that you can not take any backpacks or bags with you on the ride, but there are safety boxes at the stables where you can store your valuables.

Thanks for a fantastic holiday. Everything was just perfect, specially the Super Jeep Tour with Johann from Mountain Excursion. We can highly recommend it and Johann is a fantastic guide, he told us so many interesting things. Also the horseback riding tour and Hot Springs an Lava Cave Tour were just great. Hotel Katla and Fludir were perfect, Hotel Center Plaza was a bit loud, but also good. We sure will come back and visit Iceland again!
