We had a memorable time riding Icelandic horses on the first day of our trip to Iceland. Verena agreed to pick us up early per our request, since it was just our family of four. Other than our daughter, we were all first time riders....More

This experience is not to be missed! Even for advanced riders it is fascinating to experience the unusual gait called tölt.

Hieno kokemus vähän ratsastuskokemusta omaaville. Kierros mahtavissa maisemissa, rauhallisten hevosten kanssa sopii hyvin myös lapsille. Nice experience also for who haven`'t ride horses before. Tour in wonderfull landscape with peacefull horses suits very well also for children. We had really nice day with you!

This horseback riding tour was absolutely amazing! The people, the horses, and the trail are outstanding. I've only been horseback riding a couple times in Canada and the Viking Horses tour puts those to shame. The trail has some of the most breathtaking views, and...More
