What to Expect

If you have little experience and never tried an Icelandic horse before this ride will give you a great taste of what our horses have to offer. The only reason you might regret taking this tour is that it may lead you to want to ride more…

Upon arriving at the stable, your guide welcomes you and prepares you for the ride. Afterwards follows an introduction in the riding hall to the Icelandic horse and how to ride them. When everyone feels safe we ride out. We ride for an hour on good, soft and fairly broad tracks with views over volcanoes and glaciers, we may see the young horses playing in the fields and we will hear and see plenty of Icelandic birds. The tracks are easy for the horses which means you can concentrate on the view and enjoying the ride. You'll get a chance to experience the famous tölt and your guide will assist you with any riding matters as well as provide relevant information about the horses, the view or answer any question you might have. When returning you'll have a chance to enjoy a hot drink in the stable's cafeteria, warm up and talk about highlights from your ride.

Friendly horses, helpful and friendly staff, we had a great time and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Iceland. Horses are well looked after and the stables have a huge acreage around them. Friendly dog and tiny kittens were a bonus Thanks for a great time!
