A dream I didn't know I had

Absolutely wonderful 2-hour short ride. My mother and I are both advanced riders and were lucky enough to have a private ride (the others who booked on didn’t turn up!) with Eva, our guide. She was wonderful and our ponies were even better. Can’t recommend this experience enough!

Absolute highlight!

We did this tour at the end of our 5-day-trip in Iceland and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. The tour guides were very caring, committed, professional and friendly (the friendliest people we talked to in a week!). The scenery was amazing, the horses were funny and warm-hearted. Loved it!

 

The best!

During our 5 night stay this was the best activity we had during this stay. Even though the weather was the worst, rain and wind up to 20m/s, both the guides and the horses did amazing. Extra thanks to Elise, you’re the best.

Best horse ride I've had

As an experienced rider, I had a great time on a lively and fun pony. My friend, a beginner, also had a great ride on a steady safe pony. A really nice place and the ponies look well cared for and are obviously very fit as they were still raring to go after 3 hours. A must do for anyone who enjoys horse riding.
