1,5 - 2 Hours
Join this fantastic horse riding tour in West Iceland, and you too can experience the joys that come with sharing the countryside with an Icelandic horse. This short day-trip is a great tour opportunity for newcomers and experienced riders looking for a fun and family-friendly activity close to Iceland’s capital city, Reykjavík.
Available in both summer and winter, this fun 1,5 – 2-hour excursion is a true favourite among holidaymakers in Iceland. Icelandic horses are incredibly intelligent and friendly animals, well cared for and accustomed to meeting new faces. Though small in stature, they are among the most genetically pure animals on earth.
If you’ve chosen a pick-up option, your day will begin by being driven to the stables from Reykjavík, a short journey that will see you leave the urban environment for quaint country meadows and vast lava fields. You are free to choose either a morning departure or an afternoon departure, depending on your schedule.
Before starting your tour, you will first meet your experienced horse riding guide at the stables. Not only will you give you a protective and comfortable set of outdoor coveralls to wear, but they will also run you through the basics of horse riding as an activity.
When you’ve got the theory down, you’ll head outside, where your guide will pair you with a horse that suits your skill level. After that, it’s time to start your adventure out into Iceland’s wilderness.
Experiencing this island’s countryside from atop a proud Icelandic steed is one of, if not the most superb method of sightseeing there is. You will keep a leisurely pace throughout your trip, allowing you plenty of time to soak in the beauty of the surroundings around you.
