My daughter and I had great fun on the ride. Our horses, Thor and Gunther, were so sweet and the scenery was beautiful. It was a fast and fun ride! We would go back to Iceland just for this.

Beautiful place to ride horses. 360 hectares of open lands and mountain trails. Guides are excellent. It's a must do when you are in Iceland.

Yes, there is plenty of parking at the farm. You’ll need to email us if he’s joining the van so we can reserve a seat, otherwise no problem, we have coffee and wifi at the saloon ;)
