The bad news is, I had only one evening to spend in Reykjavik. The good news is, I decided to spend it riding with Viggo and friends on an Icelandic horse. What a unique, fun and thrilling experience! First and foremost, the horses. They are somewhat smaller than most other horse breeds that I'm familiar with, extremely gentle and sweet,... More

I visited Iceland a month ago with friends and really wanted to try riding an Icelandic horse. We picked Viking Horses because of the possibility to have a longer tour than most other companies, all the while being in a smaller group. Viggo and Svava are very welcoming and friendly hosts, and made sure our little band of four had... More

We had a fabulous time on our visit to Iceland this Summer with Viggo and his beautiful horses through Viking Horses. The horses are clearly well cared for and loved and Viggo was very careful about questioning our ability so he could match the perfect horses to our skill level. We had a wonderful ride around the Red Hills area... More

I could not leave Iceland without riding an Icelandic horse. My travel agency advised Viking Horses and that was fantastic. I was welcomed and taken care of in a perfect way and I really appreciated to find myself in a small structure where the horses are very well treated and looked after. Svava and Viggo are wonderful persons, they know... More

I want to send you all a great thanks for a tremendous day with the staff and the horses. 4 hours ride including an "Icelandic-lunch" in the forest was amazing. Special thanks to Viggo and Virina who drive us through the "golden circle" including a stop at the Secret lagoon. See you soon:)

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!
