To protect the species’ remarkable qualities, Icelandic horses are not allowed to return to the country once they have been exported.

After you have been briefed by your guide, you will be presented all of the necessary riding gear for your tour, including a helmet. All you must bring is some warm layers of clothing and your unbridled enthusiasm! Then, you will be lead to the stables where your very own horse will be picked out for you. When you’re all saddled up, its time to begin your 1-hour adventure exploring the many country trails outside of Hveragerði town.

Riders will be privy to a world of quaint farmlands, trickling glacial rivers and sweeping volcanic plateaus, really giving you a sense of the breadth of Iceland’s landscape. The area around Hveragerði is renown for its beauty and is often cited as one of the best places in Iceland in which to try your hand at horse riding.
