A must do in Iceland.

Definitely one of the best things that we did on our vacation to Iceland. Our guides Jonina and Linnea were absolutely wonderful and also gave us some recommendations on other things to do and see. It was an absolutely beautiful winter day (although a bit windy/chilly). My son (age 12) and twin daughters (age 11) rated this as the highlight of their trip.

The guide was nothing short of spectacular. Me, my husband and 12 year old daughter were first time riders however within minutes she had us at ease. The countryside was beautiful and the foliage was breathtaking. I would highly recommend this tour
Wonderful riding experience

Riding guides were extremely kind and helpful. The ride itself was gorgeous and the horses were very friendly and well trained. One could tell a lot of love went into the training and care of the horses. Also being taught how to ride the Icelandic way was a fun bonus.

Loved this! Never had we been on horses, but always wanted to. Perfect first time experience. Lily, our guide was perfect. Showed us the basics, and off we went. What beautiful landscape, just gorgeous. Weather was perfect. Horses listened to command and were so easy to ride. I would definitely go back for another ride. Highly recommend, for first time of experienced rider. Love the Icelandic horses!!
