Tour Description

A trek on the hardy, sure-footed Icelandic horse is an experience to remember. Whether you are a beginner or expert, old or young, these friendly horses, with their alert and willing nature are indeed a pleasure to ride in their natural surroundings.

We pick you up at your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik and drive to the farm located only 20 minutes from Reykjavik. At the farm you will get all basic gear, such as helmets, boots and rain clothes (snowsuits in wintertime). We gather information about how much you have been riding and choose the proper horse to match your experience. The tour lasts around two hours (one and a half in the winter season) and places you on a trek through either the lush valley the farm is located in, the riverbank route crossing the stream many times on our way towards the ocean or our all time favorite, into the hillside behind the farm to Tröllafoss waterfall, where the trolls bathe after midnight on a full moon.
