Enjoy a journey through Iceland's meadows, lava fields, and rushing rivers from a new perspective on this two-hour horseback riding tour, including pick-up from Reykjavik. Travelers looking to connect with some of Iceland's most beloved residents and enjoy incredible scenery should book this tour today. 

Your tour starts in the morning, with being picked up at your Reykjavik hotel before making the short journey to the beautiful horse farm where your adventure starts. You will have the chance to meet the horses and learn more about your partner for today.

Icelandic horses are a special and lovable breed, world-renowned for their gentle temperament, hardiness, and unique gaits. Icelandic horses have two gaits that other horse breeds don't have: the smooth four-beat Tolt and the high-speed two-beat Skeid, or flying pace.

Your ride route will depend on the weather, ground conditions, and the group's experience levels, but you can expect to ride across magical landscapes. Otherworldly lava fields, clear rivers, and green meadows are all views you can expect to enjoy on your ride. 

As you stroll through the countryside, your experienced guide will educate you on Icelandic horses, the local flora and fauna, and anything else you might be curious about. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about one of the world's most unique horse breeds.

After your ride, you will have the chance to say goodbye to your new equine friend and take a last look around the beautiful farm before returning to Reykjavik in the early afternoon. You'll have plenty of time to shower and rest sore muscles before your dinner in Reykjavik!

This ride is suitable for travelers of all experience levels, from those who have never been on a horse to the most experienced riders looking to try something new. You will be matched with the appropriate horse based on your skill level, and the route and speed of the ride will also take this into account. 

The horseback riding tour is available year-round, and dressing correctly for each season is essential. Safety equipment is provided, but wear warm, waterproof layers, comfortable long pants, sturdy boots, and gloves. 

A horseback ride on a fuzzy Icelandic horse will be one of the most memorable parts of your vacation. The photo opportunities on this tour are endless, so don't forget your phone or camera!

Take the opportunity to have a unique adventure in some of Iceland's most beautiful natural areas from the back of the beloved Icelandic horse when you book this two-hour riding tour, including transportation from Reykjavik. Check availability now by choosing a date.
