Very nice 2 hours tour in the lava fields. Riding icelandic horses is already a new experience by itself. The guides are very friendly and smiling, horses are easy to ride, nature is different from what you find elsewhere. It would be good to extend...More

This was one of our favorite Iceland experiences. The horses are beautiful. The ride was through amazing scenery, and our guide led us through a variety of gaits (including the canter and the famous Icelandic tölt). I don't know if that's standard, but our guide...More
