We finished up our 5 day trip to Iceland with a horseback riding tour at Laxnes Farm. Every aspect of the tour was excellent, from start to finish. We were picked up at our hotel, and driven a short way outside Reykjavik to the Laxnes farm. We had some help picking out protective clothing as there was a light rain that morning, then we were out to the stables. The staff did a great job matching us up with horses appropriate to our skill level (my wife and I are both novices). The horses were friendly and easy to manage, but with a ton of personality. My wife's horse was named Princess, and she definitely lived up to her billing! It was great to see these wonderful horses in their natural surroundings.
The guides were wonderful and very helpful. One of the tour members fell off his horse and into the (very cold) river, and they helped dry him off so he could enjoy the rest of the ride without his teeth chattering. We finished off the ride with some wonderful coffee and pastries back at the farm. Overall, it was a very memorable experience, and I would highly recommend it.
