Owner Árni was very accommodating and prompt with communication and my guide Anna was very patient and kind, she showed me how to bridle, saddle and tack my horse and once she assessed my riding competency off we went, galloping across the countryside, crossing rivers, walking along a small beach, and even going to see a small waterfall.
Ignore the one negative review - Fosshester really values the safety and competency of the rider and is a company that genuinely cares about guests' experience. They will go above and beyond to ensure you have a good time, and I had the best time on my private tour. Their horses are also happy and well-trained and very comfortable with human interaction.
It is difficult to run a horse tour business in Isafjordur because of limited lowland areas and even harder when there is a limit to how many horses they can keep and feed. I am so grateful to have gone on a tour with Fosshestar and would not hesitate to do another one. Support this local business - they deserve it!!!!
