Marvellous

It has been an unforgettable experience. The farmers take a lot of care of the horses and they were very docile, we have never ridden and practically we didn’t have to make any effort, they walked and jogged behind each other without any problem, but they were not tied together.

It is very good in relation of quality price. The tour was done through some beautiful fields. It was also very safe, because they gave us protections and helmet, and the guide stopped to check the straps.

The owners are very nice, they took pictures of us, and after the tour they showed us their farm and gave us food to feed the horses, the calves and the goats .

I recommend it 100%

Great Experience

I had the most wonderful time during this horseback riding tour. The guides were very nice and informative. I felt safe during the tour and the view definitely didn’t disappoint.

Fantastic Horse riding Experience

Thank you for this wonderful experience – it was magic! Your horses were very patient with us beginners (adults) and you chose the ideal animals for our experienced teens:-) We recommend this tour as a „must-do“ in Iceland. It was like flying!

Fantastic horse riding tour

I had a fantastic tour with the guide Helga through the beautiful landscape of East Iceland. I learned a lot about the Icelandic horses and the Icelandic nature. It was so much fun and the horse was picked perfect. Thanks a lot!
