    With so many horse riding options in Iceland, it was hard to pick one. The 4 of us who went on the 2 hour trail ride were VERY happy we chose Polar Hestar. Our guide, Ana, was knowledgeable about the horses and about Iceland and so nice to talk to. She went above and beyond to make sure we all felt safe and comfortable while having a great time! The horses were sweet and gentle. We even stopped a couple of times for photos of the group. If you would like to explore that beautiful land while riding a horse, pick Polar Hestar. You will be happy you did!!

    We did the family friendly tour for our kids (11, 11, 9 and 5, the 5 was her first time in a horse). It was great, they had to pick and get the horse first, prep them and then went for a ride with the guides. Very professional and well thought for kids and first timers. My kids will remember it for ever!!. Now they are asking about horse riding at home…. Jejeje. Thanks to the team!!

    My first time ever riding a horse. What a wonderful way to start! These horses are so chill and the views were incredible. I personally rode “Glow” and he was amazing! The guides were also super friendly and helpful. I’m here from the states on vacation and our original farm had to cancel on us, so we were recommended here, and glad we were. Super affordable and probably my favorite thing about Iceland so far. They operate all year round so feel free to go whenever you’re in the area! 5/5. Thank you!

    I am a solo female traveler in the winter and wanted desperately to have a winter ride. Anna Maria tried several times to accommodate our schedules, but the weather fought us. Instead, she arranged for me to have a ride at another company on my way out of town when the weather cooperated. What a genuinely wonderful gesture! I could not have been more pleased with everything! Thank you for allowing my icelandic winter ride to come true!

    By far the best experience during the 10 days we spent in Iceland! Our daughter is horse crazy and her dream was to tolt on an Icelandic horse. We did the tour during a cruise stop and it was perfect. Esther and her family at the tour company were amazing. She picked us up in town and dropped us back off afterwards. Most activities in Iceland came across as transactional and commercial, which is OK. This activity could not have been more authentic, personal or fun. We even got some puppy time on the ride back to town. We did a private tour, which was very reasonable, and they do group tours as well.
