Eldhestar Riding Tours
– the largest selection of riding tours in Iceland

Eldhestar offers a variety of riding tours for the inexperienced as well as the experienced rider, for individuals and groups.  We have up to 350 horses at our farm in the summer and 60-100 in the winter, doing our best to find the ideal horse for everyone.

Most of our Half-Day and Day Tours are operated all year round and are suited for all levels. The Combo Tours give you the possibility to combine a half day tour with sightseeing or activities.

Our Shorter Tours (2-5 days) provide further insight into the history and landscape of the Southwest Iceland. These tours are ideal if you would like to combine horse trekking with other activities.

On our Longer Tours and Wilderness Tours (6-7 days) participants experience the diversity of the Icelandic horse and try many different horses ruing one tour, which develops riding skills. We ride with a herd of free running horses like Icelanders have traveled for centuries, an unforgettable experience!

During the Winter Season (October – May) we offer a variety of riding tours, ranging from 1 to 6 hours, and special Shorter Winter Tours. You are invited to warm up after riding and taste traditional Icelandic food in the cozy atmosphere of our comfortable, eco-certified Hotel Eldhestar.

Eldhestar provides helmets, rain gear and warm winter overalls, we recommend wearing sturdy shoes and gloves.
The riding tours are subject to weather conditions and may be changed.
