We booked the horseback riding through Arctic Adventures, we didn't realise the riding is organised by a different company. The prices for these activities are so high, and we weren't sure how much the kids would enjoy it, so we booked the 2 hour ride (just under GBP 100 each). It was basically a horse riding factory. Buses and minibuses... More

Frida S, Manager at Eldhestar, responded to this review

Thank you for you review. We are very sorry to read about your negative experience, in particular with regard to the amount of guests and lack of instruction. All our tours start with a basic, practical riding instruction, which you must have missed for some reason. It is correct that we have several buses arriving in the morning and with... More

Here's the thing: horseback riding is a messy business. You get tired and muddy. But then again, so is most outdoor activities. We took the Below the Mountians-tour, which was a full day of horseback riding. We had lunch break close to a river with a view of Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull in the back.

Our second visit to this hotel: we liked it the year before and it is now our regular base. The rooms are clean and spacious; the food is delicious (we had a set menu for a party of 34). There are two hot tubs we used in the evening. The staff are very helpful. Last year we saw Northern Lights... More

This hotel has everything. If you are a horse lover then that's the place to be. But other guests with different interests are more then welcom too. We stayed here for two nights on basis of halfboard (it's a choice, you don't have to). They serve the best food you can wish for, just proper food from a buffet and... More

We did 2 mornings riding from Eldhestar. Being the middle of winter, not all routes were open which was a shame, but the varying and occasionally wild conditions provided entertainment of their own. Eldhestar provide waterproofs and if required overalls to keep you dry and warm - definitely recommended. The horses were well mannered and assigned according to the riders... More

Stayed here during our three days of horseback riding at Eldhestar. Nice rooms with Hästens beds...Of course :) WiFi speed ok. A selection of horse books available for loan in the reception area.

This place was recommended to us for a horseback ride and did not disappoint. We booked a ride directly and were surprised to find there were only two other people on our ride. The five of us set out and enjoyed the beautiful county for two hours. We had geared up beforehand for the weather but they had foul weather... More
