We just spend the best day ever with Viking Horses. First an excellent riding trip where both experienced riders and beginners had a great time ( including home made lunch on the way) , then off to the Secret Lagune where we enjoyed some wine and beers as we relaxed, and then off to Thingvellir. Great horses, wonderful service and... More

My family and I had the most amazing time riding with Viggc! We had two brand new riders and four intermediate to advanced. Viggc was very cautious and patient with the new riders and made sure they felt comfortable the whole time. Once we all felt comfortable on the horses, he allowed us to ride a bit faster and on...

We loved our tour with Viking Horses! Viggo was amazingly patient and attentive, especially with an inexperienced beginner like me.... The horses were beautiful and the scenery was gorgeous and we learned so much about Iceland on our ride. We highly recommend Viking Horses for anyone traveling to Iceland!

I opted for the evening group tour and was not disappointed. I had been riding English style for a year and had fallen and broken my arm. Viggo, my guide, however, put me right at ease--found me a horse with a soft step--and we spent the next two hours climbing the lava formations, heading down to the beach and riding... More
