My husband and I went on the longer evening tour, and it was incredible. I'm a little in love with the Icelandic horse now. :-) The other couple that was booked for the tour had to cancel, so it was just the two of us and Verena. I've ridden for a few years and my husband is more of a... More

We had a very nice morning tour with Viking Horses. Most of us are quite inexperienced with horses but Viggo and Verena proved to be excellent teachers. It was overall very pleasant!

My wife and I had 24 hours in Iceland for an extended stay-over on Iceland Air and were lucky to find Viking Horses for an evening ride. Verena picked us up at our hotel and brought us back to their home. We could not have felt more welcome, it was more like visiting friends than booking a tour. As other... More

My mom and I were on a stop-over in Iceland for about 4 days and we scheduled a private horseback riding tour with Viking Horses and had a fantastic time. We are horse people and found discussing the differences between the Icelandic Horses, and the Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds we are used to. It was so nice to learn about... More

My two friends and I visited Iceland for a week and were excited to see the countryside with some Icelandic ponies. Two of us are intermediate riders, but the other had never ridden before. Verena patiently guided her through the new experience. She also ensured that we each had an enjoyable time by matching ponies to our riding levels and... More

Highly recommend this trip! I went with 2 friends of mine and had a wonderful morning. We were picked up from our hostel and headed out to the farm. They treated us to coffee and chocolate prior to our ride. Our ponies were awesome- it was just the three of us and Verena. My friend had never ridden a horse... More

I had to do quite a bit of convincing to get my husband to go with me on this tour, and we are both very glad I did! We were picked up at the door from where we were staying and took a short trip to their stables. We were invited in for coffee/tea and to get bundled up in... More

I chose to go with Viking Horses since I am a fairly experienced rider and wanted a more personalized tour that catered to my wishes. This turned out to be an excellent choice. Viggó made sure I got a horse that I was comfortable with and that was fun to ride, took me on a 2 hr private tour, and... More

We were a group of 4 and went for a morning ride. It ended up being just us on the tour. As mentioned in the other reviews, Verena and Viggó were so warm and hospitable. It really felt like visiting friends in their own home. We could have played with their little dog all day long! I did riding lessons... More
