Excellent pickup staff horses scenery everything was perfect small group and very professional guides. Would recommend highly rjamnew
This was a nice 2 hour tour through some interesting natural landscapes not far from Reykjavik. We were offered the opportunity to either gallop or ride at a slower pace. Highly recommended for a morning activity if you're staying near Reykjavik. Mike G
Professional staff, well trained horses, nice scenery at 20 min from Reykjavík; we also had the chance to trott for some time - Reccomended! PS: The staff was very friendly and also brought me back in town the sun glasses i left in the bus Silviazzz
The group rides together for a while, then you choose the slow or fast ride. You get to experience the horse's unique gait if you do the fast ride. As a novice, the fast ride was scary but great fun and loved seeing the red lava rock. The Icelandic horses are so pretty. Definitely recommend. Helmet was provided, as was pickup and drop off from our hotel. 3wilddogs
