Really a lot of fun. The horse riding was excellent and fun for all levels of horse riding experience. The falls were gorgeous and the geyser was great. Our guide Deryn even told us where we could go to have some fun in Reykjavik
The Viking Horse Riding was such a great experience. It was a highlight of our trip! When you first get to the farm, you will put on rain pants, jacket, helmet and boots. Also, remember to grab gloves or your hands will be very cold by the end of the ride. Then, the staff will set you up with a horse for your experience level. As a group with the staff you will ride into the country side of Iceland. The views are breathtaking and are only able to be experienced from the horse out in nature. On the ride the horses will all stay together, but you will have opportunities to trot and gallop a little on the horse. The staff are very helpful if you are an inexperienced rider. Half way through you will stop for a rest at a beautiful waterfall. Then, you will journey back to the farm. After you change out of the rain gear, you will have lunch on the farm while you wait for the Golden Circle tour bus to pick you up. The lunch is soup and bread and you do have to pay for it. As everything in Iceland, it is expensive, but it does hit the spot after being out in the cold on the horses. You will have to wait around for about an hour before the bus for the Golden Circle tour will pick you up.
One of a kind experience! Went in Jan and it was so cool! The people at the farm were really nice and the animals were treated very well. This is for sure one of our tours we won't forget. Riding in the snow on these beautiful horses was great. Nice and warm with the gear they provided. I would love to come back and do it again.
I am rating the horse riding experience a 5 star event. And the half day golden circle only a 3 star. I would recommend the horse riding experience to everyone as it allowed new and more experienced riders a chance to shine. The guides and horses were top of the line.
The golden circle half day was long, boring, too much time at each stop and guide was not very good. This was with Gray Line.
The horse part isn't that great, even though the people at the farm were very nice, the experience could be improved. You get dropped off with no instructions on what's happening, paired up with a horse that they deem fitting, and off you go with the herd. No basic instructions/tips on how to properly ride, no information about the horses and what makes them special. The ride itself was nice but again, you're in a big group 30-ish and following the leader in a single file line. The guides don't do any talking during the ride. You get off a little more than halfway through the ride, they don't tell you why, I assume to give the horses a break. The people and horses were just standing there with nothing to do. My horse tried to eat some snow, it would have been nice to have a snack to feed them. My horse also didn't seem to be too happy, but I'm no expert so maybe my assessment is incorrect.
After the morning horse ride is done, you get picked up by a golden circle tour bus from reykjavik.
