What a great family-run business! Guides were knowledgeable and friendly! We had a group of 16 which consisted of experienced and non-experienced riders. Everyone had a fantastic time! Highly recommend.

Very nice family business with beautiful and well kept Icelandic horses. We went out for a tour, with my son, on the neighboring black sand beaches; it was so nice to be back in the nature. Thank you to our guide Sarah!
