Description

Experience the Icelandic horse tradition on a small farm, located just 15 minutes from downtown Reykjavik. Despite being so close to the city, you will feel like you are deep in the countryside when you arrive at the farm. There just a small number of horses here and tours are always operated just for you and your private group, so that they have an intimate, personal and authentic feel.

We will take you on a horse riding tour to Thormodsdale,  where you can admire the scenery while spending time with our friendly horses. This tour is an excellent tour for those with some good riding experience, how want to take on a little bit longer and more challenging ride. Due to the length of the ride there will be plenty of time to try the different gaits and really get to know the Icelandic horse and explore the environment that has shaped him into what he is to day. 

Riding time is 2,5-3 hours

Start your tour with a complimentary hotel pickup from Reykjavik, at the time of your choice. Alternatively, you can arrange to go straight to the farm if you are staying elsewhere, or have a hire car.
