Wow! If you like horses, this is a MUST do experience in Iceland! I am an experienced rider and my boyfriend had never ridden before, yet we both felt that this was one of the best things we did while in Iceland. There are many horse tours to choose from, but I wanted to find one that catered to small... More

If you are in Reykjavic and you want a real Icelandic experience, you must ride one of these horses! They are beautiful, gentle and responsive animals and will take you through the hills, forests and lava fields on the outskirts of Reykjavic at whatever pace you desire. Viggo was my guide. He carefully chose my horse, gave me a training... More

Me and my family took a two hour tour with the guides Viggo and Bertha, and though all of us except my daughter, were complete novices in horseback riding, they calmly explained the fundamentals and then took us for a two hour tour with magnificent scenery. Details like free pick-up at the hotel and snacks/Beverages, complimentary t-shirts and an otherwise... More

We had a wonderful experience with Ragga and Sarah and the Viking horse riding tour. We are a family of 4, including my 6 year old son and my mother of 58. This was the first time any of us rode a horse. Sarah picked us up from our hotel, drove through a scenic road to their farm. They were... More

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
