This was my second time riding at this horse farm, and I plan to do it every time I visit Iceland! The family is welcoming, the horses are sweet and friendly, and the view on the trails is amazing. Highly recommended - but be sure to dress appropriately!! The Blue Lagoon is also a must-do on a trip from Reykjavik. And a soak in the warm water after a morning out on the horses is perfect. This combo makes for an excellent day!

Simply amazing! Horseback riding through lava fields then relaxing all evening in the Blue Lagoon is an experience we will never forget!

Loved that Icelandic horse!!!
