This was the highlight of my trip to Iceland (other than seeing the aurora of course) and I highly recommend visiting this stable. Very friendly, easy going horses and wonderful welcoming people. We had a chance to experience the special tolt gait and explored around the red hills. Accommodated both experienced and not so experienced riders. Many photo opportunities as... More

My family was fortunate to spend New Years day with Viggo, Verena, and Svava and their marvelous horses. You owe it to yourselves to enjoy some time with these wonderful horses in a beautiful countryside in the hands of these experienced and joyful people. It was a day that i will not forget and look forward to our paths crossing... More

We love horseback riding so this was one of our tours we were really looking forward to. We were not disappointed at all. We signed up for the private tour and had a blast. It was snowy and cold but the beautiful scenery made it worth it. Verena and the staff were so welcoming, patient and friendly. The horses are... More

Our family of four, including two college-aged daughters, had a thoroughly wonderful time with Viking Horses over the Christmas holidays. Verena and Viggo made my entire family, all of us novice riders, feel welcome from the time they picked us up in Reykjavik, throughout the 2-hour ride and definitely as we warmed our chilled bodies after the ride dining with...

A very friendly and relaxed approach to horse tours, we were made to feel very much at home. The horses were sensible and well kept and although guidance was given we were allowed to enjoy the experience without too much 'nannying'. Lunch was served afterwards in the couples own lovely home and you were really made to feel part of... More

Fabulous trip! High spot of our trip to Iceland. The hosts were very welcoming and they and the staff all very friendly. The horses were beautifully cared for and well behaved (mainly!). The temperament was matched to the riders experience. Riding through the snow in the sun was amazing. Then back for Icelandic snacks and warm drinks. Would definitely recommend... More

My son and I went on a ride with Viking Horses - love that they give you additional clothes and even boots if you don't have what you need for the weather. The horses were great - we brushed them first - gave us a bit of time to get to know our horse. We then went on a lovely... More

Very memorable riding day with Verena the instructor! I booked the morning ride 2 days in advance, Verena responded rather responsively within the same day and am all set. Verena is a very pleasant, warm and patient lady. She shared a couple of riding tips that has been very helpful for me trying to be the master of the horse;)... More

While staying in Reykjavik, we booked our horse riding tour with Viking Horses 2 weeks in advance via email. Verena is so easy to work with and even nicer once you meet her in person. She is so patient and welcoming of questions, we felt right at home. Verena picked us up from our hotel in Reykjavik and drove us... More
