My father (age 70), husband (age 46) and son (age 9) went on a three-generation “guys” Icelandic adventure that included horseback riding with Viking Horses. None of them had any experience with horses and the Viking team were expert guides--- matching each rider with the perfect horse and giving everybody ample time to practice and feel comfortable before hitting the...

Picked up from city hotel by lovely Verena of Viking Horses, suitable clothing for riding loaned to us (helmets carefully fitted, jackets and gloves) and then the introduction to the amazing horses. Verena sized us up as humans ( a small group of 5) and then with much thought and careful consideration she matched us perfectly with the right Icelandic... More

Viking Horses was one of the highlights of our trip! The horses were very friendly and well trained. Our guides were fantastic - very knowledgable about the horses and landscape we were riding through. They did a great job teaching us the basics of riding to make sure we were all comfortable on the horses. You really don't need any... More

This was a great experience from beginning to end. It's not that far out of the city and personalized pick up and drop off! We were all beginners and they spent a lot of time making sure we were comfortable. It was a great ride and lovely to be invited up afterwards for coffee/tea, food and their dog, Bella just... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Iceland (February, 2017) My 9-year-old daughter and I, along with another couple, were given an amazing experience...the horses are so friendly and our guide was wonderful. The ride took us through magical forests covered in snow and then we ended the day at the stable, where we were invited into the owners'... More

Enjoyed our ride in the open and in the small forrest. Loved the lava hills; beautiful and eerie scenery. Verena and Christina were wonderful hosts. The horses are obviously well-loved. Wonderful experience for beginners.

We were picked up and taken to the small site outside of town, about 10 min drive, and met our horses and their trainers. We took 4 horses; Treeva, Bleacie, Cloutious, Clackie. All the horses were extremely well behaved and clean. *the conditions that the animals were kept in was incredibly pleasant and humane.* We spent a good hour walking... More

I rode with Christina at Viking horses on a recent trip to Iceland and the whole experience was one of the best. I have been riding for many years & try to ride wherever I go on holiday. It was recommended that I do a private ride as it could be tailored to suit me. I arrived and was given... More

Had a wonderful time on a ride with Verena and Kristina. They did a great job matching us with our horses. Blesi (my horse) was a great guy and we had a beautiful ride thru the snowy lava fields. They allowed one of our group to just hike the trails, and he got some great pictures. If we come back... More
