Join us as we travel through the lava fields around the city of Reykjavík on the backs of some Icelandic horses.
Thousands of people come to Iceland every year with the hopes of meeting one of Iceland’s most interesting creatures. Not the trolls or even the elves but rather it’s the humble Icelandic horse.
Best known for their calm and friendly demeanor and ability to run at a unique gait, Icelandic horses’ mild temperament reflects the relaxed lifestyle that most Icelanders lead.
You will get to know these horses extremely well as we ride through the lava fields that can be found outside of the city of Reykjavik. You don’t even need to be a horse riding pro to have a good time as the horses are amazingly well trained and you will be given a brief lesson ahead of the ride.
The ride will have around an hour and a half and will end with a light meal, so you can sample some icelandic food.
Pick up is at 9 o´clock am at accomodations. Around 9:30 we ride from the Viking Horses facilities. The trek takes you through the beauiful Hólmsheiði hill and Almannadalur area, near lake Rauðavatn and with a great overview of Reykjavik. Around 11:00 am we arrive at the Viking Horses facilities, where we offer our guests a light icelandic meal and beverages. Drop off is around 12:00 pm.
