About Lava Horses
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 :)
