Saddle up and discover the unique volcanic landscape on the outskirts of Reykjavík on the back of a horse. Ride around the countryside and get to know the friendly Icelandic horse on this exciting tour, perfect for those who wish to immerse themselves in Icelandic nature without leaving the city.

The Icelandic horse is very gentle, so this tour is perfect for both beginners and expert riders alike. Children from 10 years old are always welcome, and if you'd prefer a private tour for either an individual or a group, you can contact the tour provider, and they will set it up.

On this tour, you will be picked up in Reykjavík and driven to the stables near Lake Rauðavatn on the city's edge. Once there, you will get to meet your horse for the day. The expert guides at the stables know their horses well and will pair you up with a steed that matches your character and riding skills. 

The Icelandic horse arrived here on the Viking ships of the settlers over a thousand years ago. Since then, it has adapted to the harsh environment, resulting in a special breed unique to this country.

You will learn about this fantastic animal at the stables: its unique 'tölt' gait, small stature, and spirited but friendly temperament. You will receive all the necessary riding equipment, such as a helmet, boots, and warm overalls. After that, there is nothing left but to mount your steed and head on out to the wild Icelandic nature.

You'll ride through the idyllic and dramatic countryside near Rauðavatn Lake, traveling past black lava fields and rolling hills. All the while, you'll be accompanied by professional, highly trained, and multilingual guides who will inform you about the unique landscape and its history.

So do not hesitate. Discover the Icelandic countryside the same way the Vikings did: on the back of a horse. Book now to secure your spot on this fun-filled tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
