We spent a weekend there, had a very nice stay. So nice to be able to walk around the farm and see all the animals. The family who live there were very nice and welcoming.

We very much enjoyed our ride. But reading some of the other reviews, I am a bit jealous. We did not have a particularly personalized experience. The group was big (11 people). We did not have many explanations. There were no pancakes and coffee afterwards. Maybe we were unlucky to go during high season….we still enjoyed the experience but wasn’t the same as some others described

Our ride within the fjord, with Doddi, our guide from the Skorrahestar farm family, was simply unforgettable. I have never been on a horse before, but with a few good tips, I was able to ride my horse Skálmöld "the fighting lady" just fine. Doddi took us for a breathtaking tour, through small cliffs, tiny streams, surrounded by the (melting) snow-covered mountains delimiting the fjord. He explained us a lot of things about the horses, the flora and the fauna of the fjord, and then he told us a few stories about the ancient past of the lands we were treading. After the ride, the family offered us coffee and they showed us how to prepare and eat the Pönnukökur, an icelandic dessert with pancakes, jam and whipped cream. In the end, this was really one of the best memories our trip in Iceland.

Skorrahestar and Doddi have only amazing reviews on Tripadvisor for a good reason--the experience is perfect! My wife has almost no experience riding and I have some. Doddi and assistants made sure we were comfortable along the way and were very diligent in helping us figure out how to get our horses to tolt. The horses were well behaved and it is very obvious how much they love their animals on the farm. We opted for the 1 hour ride and wondered if we should have gone for 2 hours. Guess we'll have to come back at some point in the future! Cannot recommend this experience enough during a visit to Iceland.
