It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or expert, young or old. With their friendly and willing nature, riding the Icelandic horse surely is a pleasure and experience to remember. We start this tour by picking you up at your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik and drive straight to the horse farm, located only 20 minutes away from Reykjavik central. There we will provide you with all the necessary equipment and gear, such as boots, rain clothes and helmets (snowsuits overalls during winter). We gather information on your experience as a rider and match you with the proper horse. The tour lasts around two hours (one and a half in the winter season) and places you on a trek through either the lush valley the farm is located in, the riverbank route crossing the stream many times on our way towards the ocean or our all time favorite, into the hillside behind the farm to Tröllafoss waterfall, where the trolls bathe after midnight on a full moon. After the horse ride we drive you back to your hotel or guesthouse.
