During this excursion, we merge horseback riding with sightseeing some of the most well-known attractions in South Iceland, as well as participating in activities like trekking, soaking and observing whales. We partake in six half-day riding trips, unwind in the hotel's hot tubs or a nearby heated river and explore the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir's thermal springs and Thingvellir National Park. If the weather is favorable and the Aurora Borealis prediction is favorable, you can simply step outside to witness this breathtaking occurrence.
