Phenomenal all-day experience. The guy who owns the farm and who looks like he just walked off the set of Vikings was great- friendly, engaging and funny. The rides in both the morning and afternoon, led by experienced and friendly guides, were better than anything I have had in the U.S. We were able to trot, canter, experience the unique 5th-gait of Icelandic horses, and gallop. In the U.S., because of liability issues, you can rarely do something like this. This means that if you say that you can ride, you need to be able to ride. Accommodation is also made for those who are not experienced riders and who want a quieter, slower trail ride. This is the second time I have used Laxnes Farm, and I think they are one of the best horse farms in the Reykjavik area.

Had an AMAZING time on this trip. One warning: on the second part of the ride, despite none of us being experienced riders, we went cantering and even galloping. It was super fun, but definitely not for the faint of heart! An awesome day trip for adventurous travelers and horse lovers. Plus, the farm is family run.


3 star rating: Worth doing December 2017

Amazing views especially when going into the mountains, funny guides, and we had a great time. However, if this is your first time riding --- proceed with caution. The guides are very hands-off and did not give much instruction.
