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

Pretty much everything has already been said below but I can't stress enough how welcoming these hosts are! We were a group of eight and everyone loved the tour from beginning to the end. Thanks for letting us share your passion for Icelandic horses and hope to see you again!

The day of our 2 person private tour, the weather was very unpredictable, so I had to bow out earlier than I would have liked because my hands were frozen. But overall the experience was so fun and unique! Our tour guide was Verena, who came to our Guest house in Reykjavik to pick us up and take us to... More

I went on a trail ride with this company on Tuesday, April 7, 2015. Such a lovely company. They come pick you up from your hotel and take you to their stable. They even dress you and serve you coffee and tea prioer to your ride. Icelandic horses have a different gait than your typical american horse. They are also... More

I booked this tour prior to leaving the U.S. Because 2 of my 4 children are horse enthusiasts and were dying for a hands-on experience with the Icelandic horses. Our party was made up of me (mom), my three daughters (14, 9, & 8) and my son (12). My son had never ridden before and was initially nervous, but the... More

My 2 daughters and I had 1 week in early March (their Spring break) to explore and experience the culture of Iceland. The day we booked the tour turned out to be very cold, very windy with sideways snow and sleet. I felt the day was going to be miserable, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It was the... More

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
