Get in touch with nature with this immersive day tour. Ride around the stunning countryside on the gentle Icelandic horse before hiking from the foot of a volcano to a geothermal area where you can relax in a naturally heated river. This tour is perfect for those wanting to capture the true spirit and beauty of the Icelandic nature.

After being picked up in the morning, you’ll be taken to the stables in southwestern Iceland where your adventure begins. You’ll be paired with a horse suited to your riding abilities, as this tour is for both beginning and expert riders alike. 

You’ll spend about 1.5 to 2 hours on the horse, riding through the charming countryside. Following that, you’ll head out to the local hotel for a light lunch before you board a vehicle that will take you to the foot of the volcano Hengill.

In the green hills of the volcano, you’ll start your hike to the magnificent geothermal valley of Reykjadalur. On your way, you will pass the beautiful Djúpagilsfoss waterfalls as well as numerous hot springs. 

Bring your bathing suit because you will get the unique opportunity to bathe in the warm rivers of the valley and let the geothermal water soothe any aching muscles you might have after the ride.

As you head back, you’ll get a spectacular panoramic view over mountains, volcanoes, the village Hveragerði, and the stunning coastline. On a clear day, you might see all the way to the Westman Islands. 

Before you board a bus heading back to Reykjavík, you’ll get to enjoy some light refreshments at the stables. You’ll return to the city in the late afternoon, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the city’s sights before the day ends.
