“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Riding an Icelandic horse is certainly different from the horses we are used to in Europe or America. It is very fun! The horses are very nice, although mine was a little stubborn! The guides were nice, if a bit blunt. Good day.

“Loved the ponies”

The tour was great. We went on the easy route and the ponies are well-trained. We had a great time and got some great pictures.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

One of my most enjoyable tours in Iceland, it's truly a joy to ride the Icelandic horses. The guides were all very helpful and knowledgeable about Icelandic horses, all equipments were well prepared and they even helped us take a lot of photos! Learnt a lot about the horses and enjoyed my first horse riding experience immensely!
Thank you for the pickup from the doorstep as well, it's a bonus :)

“Great afternoon activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

They pick up and drop off at any location in the city as part of the service, which is very convenient. The people couldn't have been nicer. The horses were friendly and happy. We took the 2 hour ride though the lava field. It was a great way to see how strange the icelandic landscape is up close at a slower pace. I definitely recommend this service if you're interested in taking a horse ride.

“Way to Tolt!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Brilliant from start to finish! Thank you Inga ( guide ) and Vakka ( horse ) for the great ride today! It
was amazing to experience the Tolt! The information and scenery were excellent! I wish I could have spent the whole day riding! Maybe I will return for the 5 day adventure, or find an Icelandic in Canada to buy!!!

A must for any horse lover!!!!!
