About
A small family run horse rental available for those who would like to experience the world famous Icelandic horse on our private black beach. Tolting along black sand with off-shore views of Vestmanneyjar, fresh sea and glacier air while mounted on the horses of Vikings is a guaranteed unique experience. Miđ Hvoll is 170km away from the capital Reykjavik and easily located just off the highway.

Amazing experience!
May 2019 • Family
We did the 1 hour riding on the black beach. It was amazing and so beautiful! The horses were very good and beautiful. The horses were ready when we arrived and the tour guide was very friendly and told us about the history of the horses and took our picture and sent it to us. It was one of the best things of our trip! I highly recommend booking a riding tour with Dyrholaey Riding Tours.

Once in a lifetime experience!
Aug 2018 • Family
This was our second horseback riding tour in Iceland and it was incredible! Google maps was very accurate to find the location which is a working farm that also has some guest houses. Easy to check in, they provide helmets but we had our own gloves, hats, hiking boots, jackets, rain pants. The guides (all non Icelanders who were doing summer internships) asked about our prior riding experience and matched us up to the right horses who were all wonderful! Then we set off to their private black sand beach, splashing through small streams on our way. The guide let us trot several times on the beach, amazing experience with the waves crashing and view of the Dyrholaey arch in the distance. The guide took a beach photo of us on our horses which turned out great! We couldn't tolt because the horses need a flat surface to do this gait on but we had the chance to do that at a different barn so we didn't miss this. Would highly recommend this particular barn / tour - we had 5 in our group and it was just us. Good price compared to other horse activities in Iceland. The other riding tour in Vik seemed to have larger groups, it was very nice to have a private group.

Awesome adventure
Jul 2018 • Family
My 3 teenagers, husband and self had a great time with Dyrholaey. It was a memorable experience riding on the private black sand beach. The cost is 8000 krona for 1 hour, which is a excellent deal for what is offered. Would definitely ride with them again, they are true professionals.

Sometimes you get a little window into a life enhancing experience which will keep you going for a while. Riding in this most amazing landscape with a fellow horses lover Katie, was one of those .

We tried to email twice but got no response. We were hoping to do a tour with them. It is difficult to call with a US phone.

Fantastic Experience
Jun 2018 • Friends
My sister and I don't have any experience riding horses, but Katie, our guide, quickly put us at ease. She patiently answered our questions while instructing us, and never pushed us beyond our comfort level. Riding on the private black sand beach was one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland.

Great guides and nice horses
Jun 2018 • Couples
We had a fantastic morning with the horses and our tour guides :) Our guides were very friendly and spoke told us enough information about the horses. They also let us enjoy the peacefulness of the beach. The horses were also amazing! Mine had a personality and wanted to eat some grass while we were riding, but it just added to the fun. The horses were well-trained and easy to ride with even though we were beginners.
The views were amazing! An hour was enough time for us to enjoy and not be sore.

I doesn't get any better!
Aug 2017
I was here during my summer holidays and wanted to go for a horse ride. This is a family business, so there are small tours and they try to give you the best possible experience. I'm an advanced rider and it has always been my dream to try the special gaits the icelandic horses have. The guide picked a horse that suited me really well and I was able to tölt along the beautiful black sand beach. It was a dream come true. I very much recommend this place.

Better than I could ever dream
Aug 2017 • Friends
Katie, who led our private tour, was phenomenal in every which way. She is so friendly, warm, down-to-earth, and welcoming. She was very patient, answered all of my questions and taught me how to be comfortable riding the horse. The minute my friend indicated that she was uncomfortable at the speed, we immediately slowed down. Icelandic horses were gorgeous, well taken care of, and extremely well behaved. The property was out of this world! Prices were very reasonable - less expensive than a competitor that involved a group tour. We were out riding for two hours. Couldn't ask for anything more!
