We absolutely loved our ride, the guide was very knowledgeable, the horses great and the surroundings breathtaking. We were a mixed group of advanced riders and beginners and the tour had something for every one. The horses were very well selected. Anna was absolutely lovely and had a lot of knowledge to share!

This was a great learning and enjoying experience for two people with no or little horse riding experience. All attention was given in feeling safe. It started with learning the horses, followed by the horse riding basics which could be exercised in the stable before going out on a marvelous tour

Had the best time with the tour and the place was amazing, even if we were all beginners we did a great journey all the way around the valley. They pick you directly from the center of Isafjordur and the staff is really friendly and kind!
