* A traveler said: "Our family of 4 planned to paraglide, but we were fogged out at our 10am trip. They did everything they could to accommodate us, including us a free zip line tour. We decided to move east and call around 2 to see if we could return if the conditions were better. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t cooperating. Biggest disappointment of our trip to Iceland was not being able to paraglide, but not much anyone could have done to prevent it. Even though we didn’t fly, we felt like this operation did everything they could to accommodate us. We appreciated their honestly and integrity. Viator easily refunded our money."

It’s a perfect pick on a bad-weather day, for families with smaller kids but also for anyone who might just prefer an indoor arena experience. You will receive both cultural, historical and characteristic information on the Icelandic horse as well as enjoy the change to interact with them in the stable. Furthermore, the ride in the arena will give you a chance to really make use of your instructor and gain new riding skills while having fun. Since we specialize in small groups, there will be plenty of space for all riders in our big arena and if someone might prefer to watch, there is space on the tribune. Finish off the tour in our cafeteria with a hot drink. We are located 1 hour drive south of Reykjavik. Age limit: 10 years Weight limit: 110 kg/242 lbs
