Went with my family on a 1 hour tour with Hella horse rental. Everybody had a great horse and could easily ride the whole time. The area we got to see was beautiful, specially the waterfall. Thank you so much for great service, we'll be back soon. Xxx

Me, my wife and our sons 5yrs and 8yrs went on a tour with Ingi. We all got horses that were so good and easy to handle, even for 5 year old.
Best day ever. Thanks to Hella horse rental. :)

Our little family with 8 yr old boy and little riding experience, didn't really know what to expect when we simply called Hella Horse rental and asked for a guided riding tour the same afternoon. They were super friendly on the phone and accommodated our tight schedule. Just off the ring road they were easy to find. Ingi and Sigurborg took care to match the horses to the riders and helped us with the gear. After we felt acquainted enough with the horses we rode out into the Lupine fields, and black sands, crossed little rivers and visited a waterfall. We enjoyed the smooth tölt and gradually increased speed (not sure if we were truly galloping, but if felt pretty fast). Not in a single moment we felt unsafe. Sigurborg answered all our nosey questions about the horses and Iceland with a smile, while kindly taking pictures of us in action. Simply put it was a blast!
The next morning we originally had Blue Lagoon on our plan before heading to he airport, but we asked our boy about his preference and without hesitation he answered he wants to return to ride Fúsintes again. He did not need to twist our arms, one phone call, and 2 hours later we were back in the saddle. Anna lead us on different paths, but we had the same joy riding through the stunning scenery.
In our next Iceland vacation we will surely include a half or full day horseback excursion with Hella horse rental! Can't wait!

Over 60 couple on tour, staying at Ranga Hotel. Easily arranged for a pickup from hotel at 9pm for a 1-hour guided ride. Nice easy ride at several gaits. Good experience.

For someone who is timid around horses, I had the time of my life. Right up there with the volcano and glacier hiking I did on my trip to Iceland! The guide Sebba was friendly and very knowledgeable about every one of the horses, which made me feel very comfortable to not only get on the horse, but to gallop. For the experienced rider, like the two friends of mine whom I was with, you can also enjoy the vast amounts of space in the lupine fields to gallop or run with your horse wherever you want.

Views: Incredible, and of the Eyjafjallajokull and Katla volcanoes/surrounding glaciers -- especially from your on-the-ground perspective from the endless lupine fields.


Location: Very convenient -- Hella is known for it's horses (will be hosting Iceland's horse show later this summer) and has a VERY convenient location -- in the heart of South Iceland, very close to Eyjafjallajokull and the Thor Valley, not far from the Golden Circle, and half way between Reykjavik and Skatafell.
