We booked this tour on a whim with no prior knowledge of this company. The owner was awesome and super friendly. He patiently listened to all our questions (and fears) and perfectly matched us to the horses we rode. They served us a spectacular icelandic lunch afterwards! We loved interacting with the horses, who were very affectionate and "dog" like... More

Horseback riding with the icelandic horses were high on our list of things-to-do in Iceland and on our last day, after a long journey back from another 3 day tour, we looked up our options for a last minute plan to go horseback riding just outside of Reykjavik. Our time with Viking Horses (and Viggo, Svava, and Bella) were more... More

We had a fantastic experience with Viking Horses on our first day in Iceland. Viggo and Svava were so flexible in scheduling a private tour for us. Viggo picked us up at the hotel. We were given warm overalls and riding gear. Viggo took the time to go over the basics of horseback riding and paired us with horses to... More

We both had a fantastic time with Viking Horses...right from the start we were made to feel welcome and we quickly settled in. The horses were great and easy to ride.. I'd never been riding before but soon picked it up. Afterwards we were served a great iceland meal and experienced the authentic iceland! I would highly recommend this to... More

Last day in Iceland, riding a very smooth horse - easy to handle even for a beginner like me! Fantastic, like the nature! Thanks, Viking Horses, for everything! I'll definitely be back!

We visited Iceland this past weekend and I reached out to Viggo about a private tour for our group. They were extremely accommodating especially since I contacted the day before. Viggo picked us up at our hotel, took us to the stables, gave us warm clothing and gear to wear and was great with chosing the right horse for each... More

Firstly, the very most important thing for me is to know that the horses are being well kept and taken care of. The Viking Horses seemed to live a happy and healthy life at the stables and were enjoying the October sun outside when I was visiting. Secondly, to be able to book a private tour or to be a...

This was a lovely group, who went out of their way to ensure our day was extra special. My husband was celebrating his birthday the day of our ride, and Svava & Viggo provided a wonderful surprise birthday lunch and a fresh baked chocolate torte cake with strawberries and whipped cream. The ride itself was wonderful. It was our first... More

As I am not a natural horserider this was a bit of adventure so I am glad my horse was selfgoing but you really had to hold on because they took every chance to compete with each other. Lovely sunny day so it was fine!
