For a long long time our farmers Gestur and Margrét operated our tours in the south. Now they have past over the legacy to their son Hannes and his right hand Sophie who helped out all those year. The family at their farm are well known for their great hospitality and to lead their guests into the magic world of the southern countryside and incredible highlands of the south.

    Wir haben jetzt schon zum fünften Mal eine Tour gemacht. Alle Touren sind richtig gut organisiert. Die Pferde sind super und die Strecken sind echt schön anzusehen Wir übernachten auf isländischen Bauernhöfen und die Atmosphäre ist total familiär und toll. Diese Touren sind nur für erfahrene Reiter geeignet Das Team ist großartig und alles ist top organisiert

    I consider them to be the top horse riding company in Iceland. This was my fourth experience with them, and I am already making plans for a trip in 2024!
