We had a group of 7 riders. We all enjoyed this tour tremendously. The family-owned and operated horse farm was gracious in their service, and took us on a spectacular horse ride through the country side. We crossed over small rivers, and the horses were the best!! We enjoyed an amazing soup and bread lunch afterwards. The soup was made from scratch by the owner and was some of the best vegetable soup we have ever had. The whole experience was magical!
Great experience. I am not comfortable around horses but I loved it . Each rider got a horse to suit their comfort zone. Good way to see the countryside.
Very friendly people at the stable.
Fantastic experience for someone who has very little experience. Cannot fault anything. The team were so welcoming and the horses were so placid. The scenery was amazing and I was as warm as toast in the all in one suits provided. This was the highlight of my trip, highly recommended.
Absolutely Amazing..... loved horse riding and I will return when I visit Iceland again next year. Would recommend for everyone!
This tour was the highlight of our time in Iceland. It is a very long day but everything is amazing. The viking horse riding was our favourite part. The horses are so cute and friendly and fun to ride. I am an experienced rider but my friend is not so it is great for all experience levels. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!
Everybody on this tour was so nice! Riding the horses was easily my favorite experience in Iceland. We had a little over an hour after the horses and before the Geysir tour, and the lady at the ranch was so kind making sure we all stayed nice and warm. For a small price, soup and bread was provided while we waited. The Golden circle area was gorgeous as well - a completely different landscape.
The horses are great and the farm is really nice. They give you a warm outfit to wear in the cold. The rest of the tour was nice too.
Grateful that we opted for this tour and not the most popular Golden circle tour. Spent half a day horse back riding and enjoying lunch with the Laxnes family.
This was a wonderful tour both on the horse at Laxnes Stable and the Geysir /Gulfoss tour. All of our guides were experienced and really fun. The horse ride was amazing and the horses were gentle and very easy to handle. I would absolutely take this tour again.
I love horse back riding but haven't done it in years. This is an easy tour with great guides and the horses are tame and loveable. Would highly recommend.
Excellent! Horses are well taken care of. Great farm, staff was very helpful and friendly!
Great trip loved riding the ponies. The guide was thorough the bus was very nice. Plenty of time to see everything.
Sure, you can ride a horse anywhere, but there is something special about the Icelandic horse. I am so glad that I picked this tour! The family that runs the farm is outstanding and the location is stunning. I picked a fast horse and he galloped through the trails. It was one of the most thrilling things that I have done in a while. I will say, wear clothes that you really don't mind getting dirty. I was covered in mud after I got back. I stayed in a hostel in Reykjavik and had a hard time finding a place to do laundry. It was well worth it, though!
Really good! We even had special suit to protect ourselves against wind, rain and snow. The family who runs the horse riding centre is lovely and the landscape was really nice. We even galloped a little bit!

The horseback riding was a dream come true! The Viking horses are so friendly and lovable! The leads were so helpful. The countryside beautiful. The trip included lunch at the ranch. The food: soup, bread, and dessert are all homemade and delicious. We were promptly picked up by a coach bus and proceeded to the second half of the day to Gulfoss and Geyser. The tour guide gave us the history, culture and geological perspectives of the areas we visited. The entire 10 hour day was excellent from start to finish.
This tour was great, we especially enjoyed the hourse-riding! The golden circle tour was beautiful and our guide Willy was gret!
Fabulous experience, the owners of the horse farm are so welcoming and helpful. We had a lovely experience and we would definitely do it all again.
The Gulfoss and Geysir was wonderful, and we were given more than enough time to view them both. The driver was very knowledgeable about the area and the sights. This was one of our favourite tours of the holiday!
Great trip through grayline tours. Saw the geysir and gullfoss after visiting laxnes farms for the riding tour with about 2 hrs on the horse. We had a lovely time. Lunch of soup and friesh bread is available for purchase at laxnes. There is some down time. Wish it included fridheimar greenhouse
Excellent, much better than the tame old pony trekking we do at home. Great scenery, good length of trek and the horse responded as a horse should. Fantastic family ran ranch, a joy to meet them. GO you know you want to :- .
My wife and I had a remarkable experience, the horse are so adorable just to look at and to pat around. And that was just the icing on the cake, the rides are both thrilling and exciting. It was totally out of our expectation. The horse riding alone makes this tour worth it but that wasn't all, we still has Gulfoss and Geysirs to experience. Absolutely awesome!
The horse riding was a massive highlight. The staff were friendly, helpful and fun. We were out riding for almost 2 hours and it was just superb. I'd recommend this to anyone going to Reykjavik.
The express golden circle was very good. My highlight was the geyser

So much fun! Very nice family run farm. Great experience. The Golden Circle half day tour was plenty. You don't need more than a half day to do it.
