Great ride with wonderful horses and guide. Would highly recommend to any experience level. And because we booked last minute we had the ride to ourselves which was a bonus.

An incredible gaming experience. They customized the ride to our level and were very attentive to the children. None of us had much experience riding (trail rides in Yellowstone, Sea Island etc.) and this was a much better experience. These horses have s gait that is very smooth(tilting) or a bit rougher (trotting). The guides let us do a lot with the horses, but we're quick to intervene to keep it safe. She also threw in random f-bombs when you least expected it adding Icelandic flavor to an already unique experience!

I booked the tour only in the evening before but elena answered immediately and she confirmed that they have still place for me. I had to be 15 min before tour started. It is really not far from the city centre of Akureyri. I really liked the tour. I could pay also with credit card witch was really comfortable. Everybody were really nice. Horses are soo beautiful and I enjoyed the ride. Despite the fact that we were beginners we still could try to ride a little bit faster after first 20 min. I would absolutely recommend it :)
