Experience the Icelandic horse surrounded by amazing nature right outside Reykjavík’s city center.
This horseback riding tour is a perfect way to experience the versatility of Icelandic nature in only 2 hours. This tour is ideal both for beginners and more experienced riders; we have horses for all experience levels.
Our friendly horses and specially trained guides will take you on a ride on excellent riding paths where you can experience the unique Icelandic horse breed while enjoying beautiful scenery full of lava fields and beautiful nature.
When possible we organize the groups according to riding ability to ensure everyone gets the experience and adventure they want. The slow group will mostly do the walk and the faster group will ride at a faster pace. We recommend that children under the age of 12 stay in the slower group with their guardians unless they are used to riding horses.
When we arrive back at the stables you can enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate and feel free to ask our staff any questions about the Icelandic horse
We take pride in our personal service and limit group sizes to 20 or less to ensure a safe and enjoyable tour. Our stables are located a short 20-minute drive from Reykjavik’s city center.
