Tour 4e – Riding Tour and Glacier Walk
1.5-2 hours riding & 2 hours glacier walk
This tour starts with a 1.5-2 hours riding tour in the spirit of the Vikings. Where we go depends on wind, weather and the participants’ riding experience. After a light lunch the tour continues towards the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier, one of Iceland’s biggest glaciers. Here we start with the walk on the ice and discover a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses, hiding the deep blue colour of the glacier ice. On the way we make a stop at two great waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Guests can take a walk and see what´s behind the Seljalandsfoss and if we are lucky, we will spot two rainbows at the Skógafoss. A great combination of traditional horse riding and fascination nature.
