I did a very last minute booking online for my wife who loves riding. Asa was very helpful and came to meet us at the quayside. She drove us back to the stables and ensured we had riding hats. We filled in a disclaimer form and off we set in the safe hands of Asa and Magritte - I hope... More

I really really really recommend the Lyngfell Stables. We didn't have any booking made in 7 p.m. when we got the idea of riding. The owner was so nice and flexible. She pick us up and we went to sunset riding tour. My niece hasn't rode before. I was a bit worried about how she managed an hour ride. It... More

What an amazing experience! I rode a lovely well trained horse along a black beach and up an incredibly tall hill/ridge. The view was breath taking! Asa was a wonderful guide who even came to pick me up at the ferry! Thank you for a ride of a lifetime!

stable owners were flexible and pleasant, and took us on a wonderful ride up on a ridge where we took in beautiful views. The horses were calm and manageable. Note: they do not take credit cards! But, they were very calm when we had to bring them back cash later - much appreciated.

I loved the experience of riding the icelandic horses. The views were truly breathtaking. We took the two hour tour up the volcano. It was alot... More

We wanted to ride horses on Vestmannaeyjar, so we asked for a recommendation from our hotel owner, and she recommended Lyngfell. We had a TRULY wonderful time at Lyngfell. We rode three times. The first time was with a group of Taiwanese who had probably never ridden before... this was a good warm-up ride for me. (I had ridden three... More
