We have selected some of the most scenic riding trails in Iceland’s South and Southwest for this tour. Experienced riders enjoy spectacular days on horseback in small groups and the comfort of our hotel in the evening. Every morning we take the horses in a trailer to start the tour in a different, unique riding area close to civilization or at the edge of wilderness. We experience the popular riding area and unique “horse villages“ in beautiful nature on the doorstep of Reykjavik, soft trails in the volcanic Thjórsárdalur valley, wide open spaces and fascinating scenery in the highlands and riding on black lava beach of the Atlantic ocean.
