TOUR 1A - Countryside Charm
This tour in the Icelandic countryside takes 1 hour and is ideal for families, groups and guests travelling in their own car. Participants will get a small taste of the Icelandic horse’s qualities and experience the Icelandic countryside on horseback. We meet at our farm and ride on excellent riding paths and along the meadows around Eldhestars farm Vellir.
Beautiful landscape, very friendly and sweet horses. Our guide facilitated for my daughter at seven so that she was led in the beginning and while trotting, and walked by herself on way back. We were on an hour ride, and we definitely wanted more.
