Tour 6C - THE VALLEY OF HORSES - MARARDALUR
For experienced riders
The Valley of Horses – Marardalur has been one of our most popular stops on our trip around the Volcano Hengill Area. The valley is surrounded by special formed cliff walls, but the bottom is flat and grassy. We often talk about the hidden valley. Previously, the Valley of Horses was used as a storage site for cattle. A unique place to visit, beautiful views and very good riding trails.
Mininum number of participants are 3 people.
Really wonderful tour, guide was fantastic, horses were amazing. Highly recommend the Volcano Hengill & Hot Spring Valley tour for intermediate or above riders. The scenery is so gorgeous, and the break at the hot spring was so much fun. Really lovely tour.
