TOUR 4E - Riding Tour and 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.

We loved riding with them. They offer no many tours so you can pick was works best. We had even ridden before and had a great time!
