TOUR 2D - Midwinter Warmth


Let an adorable Icelandic horse warm your body and soul! After one hour on horseback, you can soften up in the big and warm hotpot in Hveragerði’s famous swimming pool, relax in the steam sauna or take a swim in the comfortably warm pool. Imagine sitting in steamy thermal water as a light snowfall turns the grass around you white. After returning to our hotel, light lunch will be served.

We had a great time on the Winter Warmth tour – a one-hour ride on the world’s friendliest, most easy to manage breed of horses, a nice soak at the local hot spring/pool, a wonderful filling lunch, and friendly guides.                                                                                              G.
