About Simbahollin Bike and Horse Rental
We offer small, unique Icelandic horseback riding tours in one of the most beautiful and rugged parts of Iceland. On our tours you will experience the wild nature of Northwest Iceland on horseback, riding between the "Westfjörds Alps" and over the black beaches of Dýrafjördur. We offer 2.5-hour tours twice daily at 10:00 and 13:00 throughout the summer. We can customize tours for groups, or for riders with more experience riding Icelandic horses - contact us for more information on more personalised tours. We also rent mountain bikes for those who would like to explore Dýrafjördur or the Svalvogar road independently.

I opted for the Sandar valley tour which is a perfect way for beginners and nervous riders to get to know the wonderfully sure-footed and calm Icelandic horses. The scenery was absolutely awesome and it was lovely to get off the beaten track and into...More

I hadn’t ridden in many years but the guide was experienced & paired me with a gentle mare with just enough spunk to make it interesting. The valley was beautiful & then we finished the ride at the sea. A terrific way to experience the...More

The suggested circle of the fjord offers amazing sceneries but it really only is doable for very fit and experienced bikers. The place itself is amazing, the negative rating is only for the difficulty and the fact that the Belgian guy doesn't describe at all...More

We met up before our ride in the charming Simbahollin café in the town of Thingeryi and then were told the short route to drive to the Stables. The friendly guides took time in selecting the right horses for our experience and size and had...More

We were a mix of beginners and experienced riders, so the Sanda River valley two hour tour seemed perfect for us in that respect - the guides were nice and of course the horses were gorgeous. But... unlike other riding tours we've done in Iceland,...More
