Horse Riding Family Tour in South Iceland

Come with us on a riding tour and we will make your Icelandic adventure worthwhile! Make the most of your Icelandic holiday and spend quality time with your family and beloved ones while discovering the southern region of Iceland and experience equestrian tourism. 

The tour, which lasts between 1,5 to 2 hours, is a great option for the entire family. No matter whether you are an absolute beginner, occasional or even experienced rider, all that is best in the countryside of Iceland can be discovered on a horseback.

The tour is typically between 7 to 10 km long. Depending on the riding experience of those in the tour, we adapt the riding pace as well as the route so everyone can enjoy the trip to the fullest. 

The riding takes place either alongside the Ingólfsfjall Mountain, through a rocky and rugged terrain or along the Gljúfurá river, where our visitors will be guaranteed to experience the excitement of river crossing with the horse. In addition, during the ride, visitors are ensured to have the opportunity to try the so famous 'tölt' of an Icelandic horse, which is a gait unique to this breed.

All our riding tours are accompanied by friendly, professional, highly trained and multilingual guides who have plenty of experience in horse riding and service. To guarantee the maximum safety and comfort we will provide all visitors with riding equipment as follows: warm jumpsuits, water and windproof riding jackets, boots, gloves and helmets. We also allocate the right horse to the right customer by matching the character and temper, along with riding experience. 

To enhance the convenience of our visitors, we also offer free pickups from hotels, hostels, guesthouses and BSI Bus Terminal in Reykjavik Central for those who would prefer. You can also meet us onsite at our far in Ölfus.
