Super nice tour. The Icelandic horses are very friendly animals and are therefore also ideal for beginners. The girls from the farm did a great job and took the time to explain everything to everyone before the ride. The tour itself was also great because the landscape is super beautiful. I would definitely do it again!

We really enjoyed our ride! Happy, healthy horses, and friendly instructors. They matched the riders with the right horse to make sure everyone had a good time. The Icelandic horses have a unique gait, called a tolt, that makes for a different type of ride. It's like a fast jog where you can sit in the saddle and not have post as in the trot, and requires less experience to ride and enjoy. Nice scenery and very close to Reykjavik for a quick trip outside the city.
