We ride through one of the Volcano Hengill`s most beautiful valleys, the hidden Valley of the Horses (Maradalur), with its unusual volcanic formations. At national park Thingvellir, we take a sightseeing tour and continue riding on scenic trails through lava and forests and along the lakeshore, ending at a hut in the volcanic mountains. The tour ends with the ride up to Reykjadalur Valley, where we can enjoy a bath in a warm river and a nice view over the Ölfús area.
