We had a lovely time with Verena & Viggo. The horses were carefully selected for us, myself and my 10 year old were given horses that were friends and they stayed together for the whole trek. The food after the trek was great and a really nice intimate experience. I was especially happy to add some awesome Icelandic bands to... More

When we decided to visit Iceland, one of the top activities on our list was riding Icelandic Horses. I began researching possible options several months in advance, and was disappointed to discover that most of the outfits would not allow my children to join the tour purely based on their ages (8 & 10). My kids are beginner riders but... More

The staff were very friendly and personable. Viggo communicated well with us via email and let us know exactly what to expect. One unexpected pleasure was just relaxing after the ride with traditional Icelandic food and talking both with our hosts and the other guests, though obviously the highlight was still riding Viking horses through a never ending sunset in...

This tour company was recommended by our hotel before we arrived in Iceland, and Viggo, one of the owners, was extremely responsive to email when I had some questions prior to booking. By chance, we were the only two people on the tour the morning we went, so we had the guide, Verena, to ourselves. The ride took us through... More

We rode with Viggo on a cold rainy day in August. He provided all the rain gear for our trip. I was concerned that I would be cold, wet and miserable but that wasn't how the day turned out. We were invited for an early morning coffee before the ride and an opportunity to visit the horses before the trip.... More

Wow, this was a day to remember! My 12 year old daughter and I had a private tour with Viggo on a beautiful day at the end of July. I had only been on a horse once over 20 years ago and was nervous while my daughter an experienced rider couldn't wait to saddle up. From the moment we were... More

Our trip to Iceland was a large family reunion and the trip with Viking Horses was the best part of it. Viggo and Verena were amazing and treated us like family, I would recommend them to anyone wanting to experience riding an Icelandic Horse! Sigrun and Family

We booked a private tour as we were experienced riders and wanted to truly experience the Tolt. We were picked up at the Hotel by Viggo, and twenty minutes later were visiting with the horses . Their stable is beautiful. After a quick ride in the ring to make sure we were comfortable with our horses we spent a couple... More
