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!
the horseback riding was the highlight of my time in Iceland! the farm and ride were amazing, as well as the soup/bread for lunch. the rest of the day was spent touring the golden circle and it is magnificent. highly recommend this tour!
Absolutely amazing tour!! The staff was incredible, very friendly and helpful. It was very well organized and lots of fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting beautiful Iceland!
The Golden Circle tour was great and something that you should definitely do, but the highlight of our Viator trip was our visit to the Laxnes Horse Farm. Pori and Heida the owners were wonderful and took care of us like we were family. The Icelandic horses were very well-behaved and a joy to ride. My group had people that ranged from experienced riders to people who had never ridden before and we all felt comfortable with the horse choices that were made for us. Besides getting to ride the most adorable horses in the world, we were also treated to a ride through the beautiful Icelandic countryside. I would absolutely recommend this trip in whatever tour combination you are considering. I am definitely coming back to Laxnes on my next trip to Iceland!
Incredible day. The horseback riding was fantastic with incredible scenery. We loved the lunch in between activities of soup, warm breads and cake and coffee (available for a very reasonable fee). Our afternoon tour was excellent led by an outstanding tour guide. Highly recommended !!
Amazing! The staff was friendly, the horses were friendly, the scenery was BEAUTIFUL! I highly recommend this! One note on the soup and bread for purchase, bread is good but the soup is just a broth (no veggies or meat). Not the best option for food, but the only one they offer so pack a lunch.
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!
