This was a great experience despite the weather that day. The end of tour was included food and coffee around a nice table. This is a very nice touch - it closes the experience and gives you an opportunity to meet people from all over.

It was an extraordinary ride through the scenic lava fields accompanied by a professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The Icelandic horses were wonderful, and the chat over Icelandic snacks after the ride was also very enjoyable. Highly recommended!
