Experience the Icelandic nature in the same way as the locals and their ancestors, from the back of an Icelandic horse.

Seize the opportunity to get to know the unique and friendly Icelandic horse and witness some stunning natural sceneries on this riding tour from Reykjavík. If you’re staying in the capital and wish to have an authentic Icelandic experience, this excursion is a perfect choice.

After getting picked up from Reykjavík City, you will be brought to stables just outside of the city and get acquainted with your local guide and a group of magnificent Icelandic horses. You can then pet and greet your animal companion for the day before you saddle up, take the reins and head out for a memorable ride through the South Iceland countryside.

In Iceland, you don’t have to go far away from the city limits to experience peaceful and rural nature, so get ready to witness majestic mountains and stunning lava fields as you soar through your surroundings on the back of your trusty steed.

Icelandic horses are not only known for their intelligence, strength and good temper—but their unique quality of possessing five gaits as opposed to three. The most famous of these is the ‘tölt’ which you will have a chance to experience on this tour as your guide will teach you the ropes in attaining this speedy but comfortable stride, not found in other horse breeds.

The Icelandic horse arrived at the land of ice and fire at the same time as its earliest settlers and it has remained secluded ever since. As they adapted to their surroundings free of natural predators, these wonderful animals are not easily spooked, but very easy to befriend.

So experience the Icelandic countryside as the locals and their ancestors have been doing for centuries; from the back of a beautiful horse. Book your horse riding adventure now and bring back memories that will last you a lifetime. Check availability by choosing a date.
