Really recommend them. Nice people and horses. Tour guide were super nice and they were flexible to Split the group to fit the experience of the riders. If you prefer a smaller group and personal service , go for Hraunhestar! 😊

We only wanted an hour ride as we are not avid horse people. This was perfect. I loved my horse, Bumblebee and the lava scenery. Our guide Beata, was extra terrific and made the activity even better with her friendliness. Definitely recommend.

Great place to unwind! Horse riding is very pleasant, people are very friendly and give clear instructions, so even if you are a complete rookie you will be able to ride the horse :) riding among lava fields feels like a weird western story!!
