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

I've only been horse-riding once, many many years ago. Decided to book the morning ride with Viking Horses for something different, very glad I did. Easy to book online. Hotel pick-up was right on time. Verena and Hera taught us how to control the horses, doing a few laps around the paddock before hitting the trail. I was riding a... More

Did a lot of review searching before choosing Viking Horses. And, we made the right decision! Great e-mail communication from the beginning with Verena. She picked us up and dropped us back off at our hotel. Everything went smoothly. We wanted to ride in a small group and that's exactly what happened. We picked up a small family of 3... More

We visited Iceland this winter to view the Northern Lights, but decided to add a horse riding tour to our vacation. Viking Horses was great! It was so handy getting picked up/dropped off at our house by Verena. The horses were beautiful and well trained. Kristina and Verena were very patient and through making sure we were comfortable on the... More

Our Viking Horse ride was a highlight of our trip to Iceland. Verena and Kristine were charming, patient, calm and kind and made sure that everyone in the riding group was comfortable and having a good time. We were lucky enough to have a snowy morning for our ride, followed by coffee, friendly conversation, a light lunch and a visit... More

I was fortunate to have a solo morning ride with Kristine on Valentine's Day. The whole experience was so great, I am still on a high! This is a much more personalized riding tour than most places, with a chance to be properly introduced to your horse, and get some tips on riding before heading out. The tour itself is... More

This outing was one of the highlights of our trip! The guides were patient and informative, the horses were perfectly suited to their task, and the trails were breathtaking! We're all novice riders, but by the end of the outing we were all cantering down trails and through streams. Do yourself a favor and book this tour!
