My wife and I did this during our last day in Reykjavik (my first time riding a horse) and we just loved it. The hosts were so nice and obviously cared for their horses. Put a few hours aside and enjoy this unforgettable experience.

Very friendly and helpful staff, most of the required gear available in the stable, very calm and nice horses. I'm an experienced rider, but this trip is definitely suitable for people who've never been on a horse before! Highly recommended!

What an excellent small family run horse riding company. The weather wasn't brilliant but hey, we can't control that. If you're thinking of trying horse riding whilst in Iceland don't go with anyone other than these as they are so professional, such nice people and the horses are lovely whilst they are the only horse riding company located in Rejkavik so you're not wasting money on extra transport costs (these do pick you up and drop you back off though). Total novice like myself or semi pro you'll have a lovely time and you don't need your camera as they take many photos themselves and email them to you at no extra cost. Just fab.
Thankyou Begga Rist and Sveinn Atli Gunnarsson and thankyou to your horses ; )

I had a wonderful ride with Islenski riding tours. Everyone was very friendly and the horses were well behaved and lovely to ride. I would not hesitate to suggest doing a trip with them while you are in Iceland. It is a great way to see the countryside and experience something truely Icelandic.

We did a riding tour in early November and even though the weather wasn't great, we had such a fun time. We were made to feel very welcome, the horses are adorable and the other people on our tour made the day really memorable. Iceland horses are a huge part of Iceland and the culture, this tour is well worth a visit.
