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.
Really enjoyed the afternoon!
The viking horse ride was so much fun!! The horses are well trained and the staff is very friendly. Really made me feel like a local to go horseback riding through the nearby roads, trails, and river.
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.
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
The stable and horseback ride was wonderful, the tour of the golden circle was packed full of waterfalls, geysers, and amazing landscapes.
Me and my 2 girls deeply loved this experience. The Icelandic horses are among the sweetest animals I ever met, they were very docile and so easy to ride! I adapted very quickly to the Icelandic riding style and loved every second of my ride. My 7 years old and my 10 years old loved it too down to their hearts. The farmers felt true local people as well as the food and their simplicity transmitted a true warmth to my soul which I discovered in that moment was longing for a real escape from a crazy tarmac and bricks world. I didn't mind the stinging cold and rain a bit. My young daughter played for hours with the farmers' dog at was bringing back a tiny stone to her to be thrown over and over again.
The afternoon geysir tour has also been nice and very interesting from a geological point of view.
LOVED THIS. I love riding horses so riding the Icelandic ones was a great experience
This tour was really good. The horses were lovely and gentle so my 8 yr old and I who are complete beginners had no trouble at all riding them. Even though it was an express tour of the Golden Circle we still got to see lots. Darren our guide was funny and informative. Highly recommend this tour!
