TOUR 4B - The Sea Horse

On this tour you have the chance to experience two big beautiful animals on the same day, the horse and the whale! We start the tour by riding for 1.5-2 hours at our farm Vellir. After the riding tour you enjoy a light lunch at Hótel Eldhestar before we will drive you to the old harbor in Reykjavík, where the boat will be waiting for you for whale watching in Faxaflói bay.
