My partner had only ridden a horse once before and I am an experienced rider so I was a bit apprehensive about the tour initially, however this did not have any impact on the experience. When we arrived at the stables it was hailing heavily and we were provided with full wet weather gear then set off for our adventure.... More

I was lucky enough to book a solo ride with the owner Ragga. My number one thing to do in Iceland was to ride an Icelandic horse. I got to ride Slaufa. Her horses are both beautiful and fun to ride. She was a terrific conversationalist on the ride, telling me a lot about Iceland and the areas in which... More

What a wonderful experience! I arranged the trip quickly by email. We were picked up promptly at our hotel. Sarah and Mekka are wonderful. Sarah was our guide-it was just myself, my daughter and Sarah. I am a beginner rider and a very timid one at that. Sarah was incredibly attentive to my safety and comfort. The ride was wonderful-thank... More

We wanted to do something uniquely Icelandic on out short stay so we chose horse riding on the beautiful Icelandic Viking horses. We had a blast with the girls who were very patient with us. I am not exactly what you would see as a person who horse rides and getting onto my horse was an event but everyone was... More

We went on our trip this morning and can't stop talking about how much fun we had and how we won't forget it! We were picked up from our Hotel Apartment and taken to the stables. We received a very informative and friendly welcome session, followed by about 2 hours of riding. It was awesome!! The horses are so sweet... More

This was a great way to have the opportunity to ride Icelandic horses! Although we weren't staying downtown, they. Add the effort to find us and pick us up. When we pulled up, there were numerous buildings and I was really wondering about where we were going to ride. As it turned out, there's a fantastic nature preserve on the... More

We wanted to take the opportunity to ride Icelandic horses while there (since we'd seen them everywhere during our drive around the country) but have a fairly young daugther who would not have been allowed in any of the large-group tours. Ragga and her team took wonderful care of us and we had a lovely ride with just the three... More

My friend and I booked the viking tour. The weather was on our side that day. Before taking off we got some interesting information about the Icelandic horse. It was a great ride on friendly horses with a nice, friendly and patient guide. Even though my friend had little experience, we managed to do the tölt, galop and even pace.... More

We had a small request for a few hours trip with my husband and my father in law 72 years old, riding for the first time. For all of us it was the first time riding Icelandic horses. We were taken alone on a trip by Ragga and her assistant that spoke danish. She made sure that since my father... More
