My wife, 6-year-old daughter and I spent a very relaxing and fun week at Solvangur in June. Elsa and Sigga, the owners, and their staff are wonderful hosts. The rooms are clean, well-equipped and brand-new. In addition to offering riding lessons (Elsa is an excellent teacher!), it's a great base to explore southwestern Iceland and an easy drive into Reykjavik. Staying at Solvangur offered a unique experience, especially for our daughter, where she could freely explore the farm and be with the Icelandic horses. She also loved playing with the dogs and the big, cuddly rabbit. The cafe was a great place to relax and enjoy delicious homecake cakes, teas, hot chooclate and croissants. We would often spend our mornings here while our daughter played outside (a very nice and peaceful break for us parents!) Overall, I highly recommend and will definitely be back!

We were six people spanning three generations and had a wonderful visit. Sigga and her team were incredibly welcoming and Sigga makes fantastic lattes in the cafe. We all had a memorable visit with the horses, dogs, cat, and rabbit plus my daughters (9 and 11) and I each took a 30-minute private lesson to experience the magic of these incredibly gentle horses. What a treat to experience the tolt! Sigge and her mom were fantastic instructors and we all thoroughly enjoyed our rides! Thank you ladies!!!!

This is a lovely family farm, beautiful horses - nothing big, just a cosy place with not many tourists so if you’re up for a relaxing afternoon, have a million questions about horses like we did haha, this is a place for you. For a bonus there is a beautiful cafe, so nicely decorated with all-horses-everything and good coffee. Thanks to Natalie, girl from Sweden, who explained basically everything and took her time. We really appreciated your knowledge and passion for horses who are verrrry well taken care of! Btw there are also three cute dogs and a rabbit😁 a tour to remember🤗

seeing these horses was the best part of my trip to Iceland. The summer worker from Poland was very informative & knowledgable in teaching us all about the horses. It showed that she had great care for them as well as the farm did. they are treated with love at this farm & the horses were very happy,friendly and beautiful! We also had a nice lunch & dessert there & they sell some warm & stylish jackets for women.Would definitely visit again & spend more time there next time!

The Sólvangur Icelandic Horse Center is such a beautiful place to visit and stay, it's a family owned horse farm within a stunning landscape, with high quality horses, funny dogs and sheep and such a lovely host family. Once you visit this place you will want to stay there. The little cottages named after famous horses from Sólvangur are very clean and decorated with love and heart, the horse scheme is present everywhere and very heartwarming. The cottages contain a modern bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen, so you'll find everything you need! There is also a cozy little stable coffee at the farm where one can get great coffee, cake and lovely horserelated gifts. I would highly recommend a stop and stay at Sólvangur!
