Had a wonderful time with organised and knowledgeable staff I've never been on a horse in my life and in my 50th year I loved it. The scenery on the ride was stunning too. Highly recommend.

Amazing tour. Icelandic horses are amazing, as was our guide. I felt like I was in lord of the rings or game of thrones riding a horse through the frozen tundra. If you are visiting Iceland you must take this tour!
