Experience riding an Icelandic horse and learn about the traditions around horsemanship in Iceland. Our little farm is located just 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavík - but still you feel like you are at the countryside when you arrive with us. We only have few horses and our riding centre is very small, that way we feel we can keep the atmosphere personal and authentic. This is a private tour, so it can be customized to your riding level. Choose from our standard daytime tour, or in the summertime you can also opt to do an evening or midnight sun tour. Suitable for both beginners and advanced riders. Full riding time is roughly one hour.

What a fun afternoon. Our guide was fun and we got a history lesson about farming in Iceland as a bonus! All of the horses were so happy and well cared husband fell in love with his horse which was adorable. Would highly recommend this outing!

Fun and exciting tour in the beautiful Icelandic landscape. As a beginner I got a lot of help from the guide. I even got to test ’tölt’. I really recommend Icelandic Riding for everyone.
