Hotspring Riding Tour

Come with us and create memories that you can cherish for a long time. Take a closer look at the hinterlands of southern Iceland to find some of its natural beauty and hidden gems during horseback riding hot spring tour! 

The adventure starts in the morning at the Sólhestar horse rental farm in Ölfus, in which customers are being equipped with the appropriate riding gear and assigned with the right horse for the tour. We allocate the right horse to the right customer by matching the character and temper, making sure each visitor has the perfect companion to enjoy their travel with. 

The riding is estimated to be 18 km long, which is between 4 to 5 hours in the saddle. Added time will then include gearing up, getting to know your horse and transfer, should you elect pick up upon booking. 

The ride typically starts by us heading to Reykjadalur, a geothermal valley above the village of Hveragerði. Then we ride up through the mountain paths - all the way up to the geothermal area where visitors are able to experience hot springs up close and bathe in a geothermal river surrounded by pure nature, relax and enjoy quality time with family and friends. 

After some quality relaxation in the geothermal baths, we ride all the way back, through the village Hveragerði and its surrounding area, crossing a river, and riding on rocky mountain paths through Icelandic pine forest to blue lupine meadows.
