About
Riding tours in a magnificent nature. Surrounded by lava, wet lands, sand dessert and birch forest we can offer an experience you will remember. We are a small family driven company with only 10-15 horses, therefore this fits small groups, families and friends. We will be glad to welcome you at our farm, you may also be welcomed by our lambs and dog which like new people :)

I've never ridden a horse before this experience but I loved it. My wife was a little nervous at first, having fallen off horses in the past, but a big thank you to our guide Maisie, who was very reassuring and helped her through the anxiety. I highly recommend this tour!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-hour ride, it was tailored to our experience and we had an absolute blast! Lots of opportunities to practise the tolt, which was unique . Horses were well behaved and well looked after, guide was lovely and friendly, gave us lots of information, and the scenery was fab.
Just a wonderful experience all around, highly recommended.

Beautiful Icelandic horse rides between the lava fields and forest. Must do. Special thanks to the lovely guide, ‘Mysa or Mysae’ (apologies if we misspelled your name).

Awesome! No more words needed :) Tora (owner and guide) is an astonishing lady! She is very nice, friendly and very helpful! Especially for people like me who never sat on a horse before :) It's a lot of fun with those super friendly (not to tall) animals and this beautiful landscape you are riding through. Thanks a lot! 100% recommended! We'll come back!

Unique way to discover the beautiful area and lavafields. Our Horses were well trained and the instructor was super nice! We would recommend Lava Horses to anyone who wants to go horse back riding on icelandic horses in a diverse environment!

We took a 2h tour, which was great. We were a bit worried because we are not skilled riders, but the horses are very nice and easy to handle even for ten year old kid. We were accompanied by twoo guides, and did almost 10 km through very interesting landscape - from lava fields, to forest, river bed…2h time gives a lot of opportunities to talk with guides about different aspects of living in North Iceland. We also experienced very pleasant tolt:) it was really great experience.

We had 2 hour ride with the owner Tura and the whole experience was fabulous. Her horses are very well looked after and energetic and her tours are restricted to very small groups so you ride with similar standard riders. The property where we rode was basically lava fields and they were very interesting to ride through with details about the area from Tura. We tried all the gaits of the ponies and especially enjoyed the many opportunities to tölt which is such a unique gait. We highly recommend this ride which is a very quick and easy drive from Húsavik. Tura offers a whole range of riding adventures from 2 hours to a week.

Tura is a very friendly host and we enjoyed very much the 1h horse back riding through the beautiful farm. My son (8 yrs old) particularlly enjoyed his first riding. The horses are loverly, well taken care of and healthy. Tura took care of him and this tous is highly recommendable.

We took the 2 hour tour and it was amazing! The guides were really friendly and professional. One of us has experience with riding horses and one hasn't. We really enjoyed the tour and we both got to do some tölt. Halfway through they split the group so the ones with more experience could do some galop.
When you are in the area you should really go to Lava Horses! You get to enjoy the beautiful nature on the back of a horse with some really nice people. If you have never been on a horse before, this is the best place for a first time.
