I had never ridden a horse before and Lyngfell Stables was a great choice for my first experience! I was lucky with the weather and it was sunny and calm so it was quite a large group I went riding with. They put me on a horse that follows the group at the back so I wouldn't have to do... More

We spontaneously decided to go to Heimaey and I searched for a stable as we still had riding left on our wishlist. I found Lyngfell and then checked Tripadvisor and we were not at all disappointed. I contacted Ása late Monday evening and 15 minutes later she had replied to all my questions (age limit, could we ride even though... More

I had a one hour ride along the black beach, lava rocks, and mountainside. It was simply spectacular and our hosts were full of knowledge. We saw puffins on the cliffs, a perfect sunset, and 5,000 year old lava formations. I had the chance to try the Icelandic 5th gait and to canter with my horse. It was pure bliss.... More

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.

We came in on a cruise ship and I wanted to do something besides what the cruise ship had to offer. I found out about lyngfell stables on tripadvisor, and decided to book it. 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
