Next stop is Geysir, the world’s most famous hot spring, and Strokkur, its smaller neighbor, which erupts in a spectacular of blue water every few minutes. The trip then continues to Gullfoss, the Queen of Icelandic waterfalls, then onward to Friðheimar. Last but not least is a volcanic crater, Kerið, before returning to Reykjavík via the garden village of Hveragerði.

The 2-hour horseback ride in small groups and offers personal and friendly service. This tour is about 7-10 km, depending on the experience of the riders. It is suitable for beginners and for those with more experience as there are several routes in the area. Either ride on a beautiful and smooth riding path along the Ingólfsfjall Mountain or, for a group of more experienced riders, ride by and in the river Gljúfulá. On both routes, you will enjoy natural riding paths and a wonderful setting for horseback riding where you will get to know the friendly Icelandic horse.

Be taken back to your Reykjavík accommodations after.
