  • Horse riding in countryside


One of those Iceland tours 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 will provide you with all the necessary equipment and gear, such as boots, rain clothes and helmets (snowsuits overalls during winter) and gather information on your experience as a rider and match you with the proper horse.

What to Expect? 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 Trollafoss waterfall, where the trolls bathe after midnight on a full moon. 

Travel Tip: This tour is ideal if your looking for a family friendly tour in the countryside just outside Reykjavik greater area (only 20 minute drive from downtown Reykjavik). Pickups are relatively cheap - ISK 1.500 per person (ISK 1.000 for children) extra.
