We've visited Solhestar a couple of times in the past few years and have had a fantastic experience every time. Unlike some of the other riding centres, the groups here are small - 3-6 people (in one other there were at least 40 people on the ride). The horses are lovely, and very responsive. Our group included one novice and... More

A perfect place with excellent service and good horses, even for us who was experienced riders. Really small groups, we were three persons with a guide. It got really personal and we really enjoyed that! Hope to see you again Sólmundur! / The three girls from Sweden

Sólhestar has a great herd of safe, smooth-gaited, fit and lively horses. As an experienced rider, I was thrilled with my forward-moving and sensitive horse. There were several opportunities to canter on the 2 hour ride. My boyfriend, who was an inexperienced rider, felt very safe and comfortable the whole time and had no trouble getting his horse to tölt.... More

Such a amazing experience, It was me and my Swedish friend who went. They pick us up in Reykjavik and it was only me, my friend and the guide on the tour. This meant that we could decide our own speed and where we wanted to go. We had fast and happy horses and this was by far the best... More

The best horseriding in Iceland! Amazing for any level of experience! Everyone is so nice and helpful! Really personalised and family style, not those big factory stables! The horses are steady, the scenery is perfect and you can choose any riding tour suitable for you and your skills! I am definitely coming again! Thank you so much! I'm so happy:)

The weather in Iceland changes every five minutes. So you cannot plan your riding experience around the weather. We booked knowing that the weather was going to be blustery. We could probably expect some snow, perhaps a little sunshine and who knows what else. We were picked up by Solmunder and driven out to Solhestar, the riding stables. It is... More

Went here on a beautiful Icelandic day. Rode for one hour on Sventree. I'm not a rider by any stretch of the imagination. But this horse was so gentle and in tune with me, I was amazed. Okay maybe it was the owner who picked out the horse for me that understood what type of horse I needed to have... More

It was the first time I ever did horse riding and I was suprised how good to handle the horses are. Everyone is very kind, they help you whenever you need it. I already went twice because I enjoyed it so much :) I can really recommend this!
