it was perfect! So beautiful and the horses were so cute. The only think that I didn’t like is that the guide was not that polite, a little bit rude.

We had a terrific experience! We got to prepare our horses and then have a mini tune up lesson (we both had some riding experience) before heading out to see the beautiful landscape. Grateful to have the photos and video that were included. Anna was a great guide and we loved being able to do some tolting! Highly recommend.

We had a great morning riding among the waterfalls and beautiful scenery. The tour includes grooming and saddling the horses then riding in a ring to be sure you have a good comfort level with the horses. Their gallop seems/is faster than the western horses I have rode in the US so be prepared for that. Best of all, they seem to really take care of their horses.

We were in Iceland for vacation and the horse riding tour was an absolute highlight. The horses are very well cared and very well trained. We were involved in the whole process, cleaning horses, scratching out hooves and saddling. Our tour guide Anna did a great job explaining everything so that even I, an absolute beginner, was able to tolt. Many thanks also to Kjaran👍 🐴 The tour went through a beautiful countryside and we even crossed two creeks. It was a very great experience, absolutely recommendable, thank you very much, Árni, Mimmo and Anna!
