Discover the majestic beauty of Icelandic horses with this private two-hour horse riding tour for two to four people. Travelers who want to learn about Icelandic horses and enjoy a ride through a volcanic landscape with private instruction should book this tour today.

The tour begins at the Icelandic Riding Center, about seven miles (11 kilometers) from the center of Reykjavik. Reaching the riding school by car, taxi, or public transport is easy. There's a bus stop about 550 yards (500 meters) away.

On arrival, you'll meet Begga and Sveinn, the expert local guides leading your group on the horse riding session. They're highly knowledgeable about Icelandic horses and will give you a short introduction to horseback riding. You'll also receive a helmet and a riding crop.

You'll begin the two-hour ride through a stunning volcanic landscape when you're ready to go. The area is gorgeous, and viewing it from horseback is a memorable Icelandic experience. 

Make sure you bring your camera to capture the beautiful views surrounding you. The guides will also take photos during your tour and send them to you afterward, so you can focus on the ride if you prefer.

Icelandic horses are smaller than most other horse breeds and have a unique gait called a tolt that lets them easily travel over rough terrain. When you've built some confidence, you'll traverse the volcanic landscapes and experience the faster-paced tolt.

These animals are much-loved by Icelanders and have an interesting history. The guides will tell you what makes Icelandic horses unique as you ride, so you can understand what you're experiencing.

Since this is a private tour, you can customize it to your taste. You can visit particular types of landscapes and ask your guides questions about Icelandic horses or the landmarks you encounter. Begga and Sveinn are friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable, so they can ensure you have an immersive and entertaining experience.

The tour has no age limit and is suitable for families with children. If traveling with young children, you can ask the guides to operate more slowly to ensure the ride is appropriate for their age group and skill level. 

Whether you're an experienced horse rider or want to try something new, this tour is a fantastic way to enjoy the great outdoors and get up close with some adorable animals. 

This two-hour private tour offers an Icelandic horse riding excursion through magnificent volcanic landscapes. Check availability now by choosing a date.
