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 Lake Hafravatn, where you can admire the scenery while spending time with our friendly horses. This is an excellent tour for first time riders and experienced riders alike.

Full riding time is roughly two 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 (own expense). 

When you arrive at the farm, your guide will go over the basics of riding and introduce you to the horses and especially the one you are going to be riding. You will be provided with a helmet and gloves if need be, as well as a warm overalls during the winter months. 

After you have gotten comfortable riding your horse we will set out for the tour of Lake Hafravatn. During the ride we will tell you about your surroundings, Icelandic horses, and the history and folklore surrounding them.

Finally, when we return to the farm, you are invited to enjoy some complimentary light local refreshments with your hosts.
