Excellent explainations on how these Icelandic horses are special. The hostess was patient with the explanations and showed us various videos showcasing what the horses are capable of. Really enjoy spending time with these beautiful horses at the stables too!

We also had a tour of their hot spring system and a taste of the rye bread made from their private hot spring oven.

Very unique experience. Highly recommended.

5 minutes from our hotel socalled in on the off chance I could ride today. The owner was amazing. Very friendly and said I could go out there and then. She picked a horse and I helped groom it. Once up in the saddle we did a 45 minute ride including the special Icelandic gait. She explained about her family, the farm and the horses. Once back she showed us their hot spring and how they cook the rye bread. Coffee and rye bread are included in the fee as are a helmet and gloves. You can book via email. An amazing experience worth every penny.

A great horseriding experience for us, being total beginners. We felt very comfortable and were taken care of very well. The 1-hour tour we selected was very nice as well, with river crossings and loads of beautiful Icelandic nature to experience. Very recommended, including the history of their hot spring as it is used on the farm for more than 100 years already (the grandfather was a pioneer).

To describe the reception as being impolite is a serious understatement. Extremely rude or even hostile is much closer to the experience we had. Under no circumstances should you dare to go near this place unless your desire is to be verbally abused and threatened.

What a lovely ride! This is a family-owned farm, nothing commercial about the experience. The horses are treated almost as well as the spoiled dogs we left at home, and from arrival to departure we had an unhurried and hospitable experience. I believe Herra was the young lady who took us out -- she was patient with us, especially me, the novice in the group. We had a slow ride along the river down to a hot spring. It was during a snowfall and everything was soft, blanketed, and peaceful. Then we had an informal chat while watching videos on the Icealndic horse and eating their geothermally baked bread with hot chocolate. We all walked away enriched.

We loved being able to meet the horses and learn more about what makes Icelandic horses different. We did the stable tour. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We were the only people there the day we came, so we got a lot of personal attention, and plenty of time with all the horses we got to meet in the two stables. It was also super interesting to learn about the geothermal heating and baking, and to taste the rye bread. We had hot cocoa with ours and it was a welcome treat on the cold windy day we visited. We asked about possibly going riding as well, but it was just too windy that day for a ride. But, the stable visit was so enjoyable and the horses so friendly that I don't think we missed out on much.

My friend and I came here expecting a fun horseback ride, but what we got is SO much more! We got to meet multiple horses, spend some time with them, we went on a breathtaking ride with Hrafnhildur who was very sweet and kind to us and made us feel at home. We were also accompanied by two very happy dogs making our time most memorable. I loved Iceland and can't stop talking about it but this was definitely the highlight of the trip. Hrafnhildur also gave us some delicious rye bread she made herself using heat from the hot spring! with butter and Hot chocolate. It was so perfect. We've passed other horseback riding tours places on our trip in Iceland, but we think we got really lucky because Sturlureykir has to be THE BEST ONE.

We picked up a brochure while driving in the area and decided to stop. Even though it was 5 minutes before closing time, we were welcomed and shown videos about the horses, given a stable tour, and then had coffee and homemade rye bread. This family clearly loves the farm, their work with horses, and having international visitors. It was one of our highlights during a week of wonderful experiences in Iceland.

We visited the stables at Sturlureykir farm and had an absolutely amazing time! We felt so welcomed into this family home. The horses were so beautiful, and we loved learning more about what makes the Iceland horse so special. The location is beautiful, and petting the horses was an amazing experience for us! Perfect for us who weren't interested in actually riding but wanted to meet the animals. They were clearly very well loved! Plus the bread was absolutely delicious, we can't wait to try the recipe at home!

We loved our tour of the farm and introduction to Icelandic horses. We felt like we were seeing an authentic part of Iceland. The bread and coffee were delicious! The weather was horrible so we didn't book a trail ride but plan on doing so in the future. Definitely worth a visit.
