Two Iceland trips in one day. First we will visit the most popular dive site: the magical fissure Silfra, located in Þingvellir National Park. After the Silfra dives we will warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and cookies before we take you to the Laxnes Horse Farm, where you will spend the rest of the day on a pleasurable ride through the beautiful valley of Mosfellsdalur. At Laxnes you will be provided with riding equipment before you are handed one of their friendly sure-footed Icelandic horses suitable for both beginners and experienced riders.

What to expect? Iceland trips for divers who like horses and horseback riding fans who are scuba divers. Horse enthusiasts will already know that the Icelandic horses are an extremely special and protected breed. 

Travel tip: These tours are located on same route, with only around 25-30 minute drive from Silfra Fissure to Laxnes horse farm.
