Horses & Northern Lights by boat

Join this fun winter tour that combines two of Iceland's most sought after activities - horse riding and Northern Light hunting, and get a boat ride too!

In the daytime you can enjoy riding the Icelandic horse through colourful lava fields and in the evening you can admire the auroras, as well as Reykjavík from a distance on an excellent boat tour.

On the horseback riding tour you will get to experience the Icelandic special gait, 'tölt' while exploring the different rock formations around you.

The boat tour departs from the Old Harbour in the centre of Reykjavík. The boat sails along the coastline of Reykjavík and out of the city lights so you have a better chance of seeing the Northern Lights. Onboard the boat we'll also have time to tell you all about the auroras, both fun facts and scientifically what causes them.
