Had a very good time horse riding at Ashestar with the family. Our guide was very nice, friendly and patient with us! We loved the tour (beautiful path alongside the river) and will definitely come back on our next trip to Iceland!

On our annual visit to Husafell the family stopped for a riding tour with Ashestar. We loved it so much that we came back for a second time! Professional people, well trained riding horses and wonderful scenery - what more could you ask for?!
