My wife, my son and I stayed two nights in Panorama House in early July. My wife and ten year old son had an introductory ride on 8 July prior to taking the all day, “Under the Volcano” ride on 9 July. They enjoyed their rides so much that if it were up to them we would have spent the next twelve days doing the, “Under the Volcano” ride every single day.

In every aspect of our stay from the rides themselves through to the excellence and professionalism of the guides, the farm manager Johanna, the impeccable training put on the horses, and the excellent standard of accommodation this was a 10/10 experience.....by far the best overall series of experiences combined with accommodation we experienced in two weeks in Iceland, including a couple more riding days later in our trip.

We run a large, high end horse boarding and buy/sell operation in the US so we know of what we speak. If you’re a horse enthusiast keen to see excellent and well trained Icelandic horses combined with a well run farm go to Icelandic Horse World/Farm Skeidvellir. You won’t be dissappointed.

We stayed on the farm and had really great riding lessons from Katrín and lovely relaxing rides out in the beautiful landscape. We highly recommend this combination as well as shorter and longer tours and stable visits. The horses were so well-trained and comfortable and we had a lovely welcome. Everything was perfect. Thank you all!

"Under the Volcano" day ride

Visited in July 2021 for a day ride as an experienced rider and had a lovely time.
My horse Bassi was very sweet and responsive, with easy and comfortable tölt. The path along the river offered beautiful views out over the countryside and to the volcanoes and glaciers in the distance. My ride was led by Annika, who was very friendly and knowledgable.
The stable and equipment all looked well maintained, and the horses are clearly well cared for and loved. Definitely recommend!

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Icelandic Horseworld. My husband and daughter took the two hour Country Ride with Tabea and my daughter and I did the Meadows and Mountain ride with Lucia. We all agreed that the horses were amazing - so sweet and easy to ride and both our guides were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We highly recommend this tour company and would absolutely return. We only wish our time in Iceland was longer so that we could have ridden there again.

I have been horse riding in many parts of the world, but I have to say the quality of horses here (Icelandic purebred) and smoothness of the ride is by far the best I have experienced yet. What I also loved is that Icelandic HorseWorld is family run (I met the entire family). I didn't just go horse riding; I learnt a lot about horses especially my horse Hrafn (a real gentleman), how to brush them, place the saddle and bridle, the importance of the bit and how to steer your horse along the way amongst many other things. Katrín (one of the owners) met with me personally and took me around the farmland and the really cool bragging room. I even met her mother as she was training one of the horses at the stable. The lovely Mathilda was my guide throughout the horse riding experience and she made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. We also had a great chat as we soaked in the stunning surrounds. The entire experience was professional, personal and heartfelt - you can see the passion and respect they have for their horses. I highly recommend a horse riding experience here.

Beautiful place, friendly staff, wonderfull horses. We are two families. Some of us have ridden more than others. All started with a short introduction inside making sure all could control their horses. All were riding together and the less experienced were wonderfully looked after during the ride (four guides for a group of seven!) After the ride we were offered coffee and a tour around the stables. Group picture of us on horses was sent to our email. We will be back. Highly recommended!

First time for My 10 and 12 year old sons and they loved it. Having two guides with our party of four was excellent with two beginners.
Both wants to come back and ride more!
We couldn’t be better treated.
We will definitely come back!

My 17 year old daughter and I had a fantastic visit on the farm. We booked a studio apartment on the farm through Airbnb, then had the opportunity to ride the horses the following morning after our stay. (I would stay longer next time!) I have ridden horses occasionally throughout my life, but always with a little fear. Riding with Ilona, one of the stable women, was an absolute joy. In the short time that I spent on the horse I felt very comfortable and felt a particular bond with the animal. One of the most gentle breeds that I have experienced. It was amazing to feel the difference between "tolting", the gait most horses have lost between walking and trotting, and an actual trot. Such an incredibly smooth ride. I could tell instantly when the horse switched from tolting to trotting. Seeing the surrounding countryside and hearing the history of some of the volcanic eruptions in the area was fascinating. One of the highlights of our trip!

To ride here with Joanna and Carol looking after us was a really lovely and highly memorable experience. The yard is amazing. The horses are loved and looked after beautifully and the yard is immaculately kept. This is a highly professional yet very welcoming set up. We (two adults and two teenagers) rode beautiful Icelandic horses for a well over an hour and a half through the extraordinary landscape of the farm. The countryside is utterly beautiful. The girls were very chatty and friendly and made such an effort. With limited riding experience we felt immediately safe and secure; they are clearly highly experienced horsewomen and know exactly what they are doing. After our ride the girls went above and beyond and kindly offered us further chats and coffee and hot chocolate. This rounded off the afternoon so nicely. To ride here on these magical horses with such lovely company is an experience that we genuinely will remember for a very long time. Undoubtedly this will be our Icelandic highlight . With very genuine thanks once again.

Had a great time with Caro and horses Odiss and Svenski (hope I spelt that right!?). Caro was very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to answer all my silly questions. We tried out the tölt which made my day. Icelandic HorseWorld is in a great location with wonderful views and is well-run - great stables, tracks, etc.
