Chose to be picked up from hotel. Driven to the farm which we had already glimpsed the day before when returning form the Golden Circle tour so we were excited as it was in a lovely setting. The family are so lovely and take a lot of care with fitting you out in appropriate clothing and choosing your horse for you. Mine was Benjamin, a little gentleman who took good care of me whilst still eyeing up the mouth watering grass. We experienced the Tolt gait special to these lovely horses and had a very enjoyable ride. Halfway the group was split up so those who wanted to go faster had the chance to do just that. Everyone seemed very happy and to enjoy the experience. I am a novice and I really enjoyed it. We would visit again if we return to Iceland. On return to the farm we were welcomed with tea, coffee and cake then returned to our hotel. My daughter left her camera there and they were so helpful in getting it back to her in a very short space of time as we were flying home that day. They would have gone to the trouble of posting it to the UK if they had not been able to get back to the hotel in time. All with the kind attitude we experience a lot during our few days stay.
Good for children too. The family take special care to place you with a horse to suit you.

One of the highlights of our Icelandic adventure! Absolutely loved this experience and the owner who picked us up was a pleasure to chat with and quite funny. The staff at the ranch were all so friendly and helpful. I highly, highly recommend this experience for your time in Iceland.

The highlight of our trip, this amazing tour started when the tour operator picked us up from our hotel. He is so friendly. His family owns the farm. The horses are Icelandic Horses, and they are amazing. He pairs you up with a horse that meets your riding experience. He knows all of his horses by name and personality. He raised them all himself. The guides are exceptional too. We went riding through an icey river and rode through the snow. It was awesome. I would highly recommend this trip. You will see what we are talking about. Be ready an hour prior, not 30 minutes like Viator says. Pickup starts an hour prior. Have fun.

Great experience! Lovely family owned business, the staff were really friendly and always happy to help. All the necessary equipment was provided and the horses were brilliant. We went out across the countryside on Xmas eve, it began to snow and the horses were not phased in the slightest. For me this was a magical experience as we travelled across the rivers and up hills. When we arrived back at the farm, hot drinks and Icelandic Xmas cake were put out with compliments from the owners. Overall I was really impressed and for me this experience made my Icelandic Trip and my Christmas too! Thank you to all the owners and staff at The Laxnes Farm, with Love from the UK.

Great experience! They take care of everything, ensuring complete riding gear, safety and comfort. My children were smiling the whole time! Quite thrilling to ride through a swelling creek and trot around the countryside! We would definitely book this adventure again.

The owner was great. The people running the rides took time to find just the right horse for you. The scenery was great. I recommend you try it.

This was an incredible, memorable experience. The countryside at the horse farm is absolutely magical. I'm not a particularly experienced rider and I had no problem whatsoever. The horse I was given knew what she was meant to do and all I had to do was enjoy the experience. There was a light rain the morning I went, but it didn't matter, the trip was still very enjoyable. We dismounted at the far end of the trail and were able to walk a short distance to see a gorgeous waterfall before returning to the farm. I would highly recommend this trip. I will be remembering it fondly for a long time to come!

Love love love!!!!! This is the best ride. The ponies are gentle and friendly. The owners and staff are amazing! My son was a little unsure of this activity and he had the best time. Wanted to bring his horse, Felix, home with him.

Just make sure you are ready at your hotel an hour before your tour start time.
