We will be there the last week in March. Seems like many of the stables are closed in winter. Any one know of one that is not?

Response from Elwira K | Property representative |
Yes, most of the stables in the South are closed, not sure about any with regular rides, everyday tours. We highly recommend Laxnes Horse Farm for a winter rides, they are closer to Reykjavik.
