Join this tour for an afternoon of easy riding and fun for the whole family. This tour is for any level of rider, and is a wonderful experience for animal lovers, families or groups or anyone who loves the Icelandic countryside. Tours are kept to 20 people or fewer, in order to ensure that all riders get personal attention and all the relaxation they could want.

You'll be picked up in Reykjavik and brought to the spacious Riding Centre just outside the city. The grounds feature a large paddock and barn, along with dogs, cats and bunnies for guests to pet.

To start the tour, you’ll learn about the history of the Icelandic horse, a hardy breed brought to Iceland by the first settlers. Then, you’ll be matched with a horse that suits your experience level and mount up.
