Traveler Tips

  • "There are several chances to ‘tolt’ along the trail, but that’s about as fast as it gets - but then the staff have no way of verifying your riding ability, so that does make sense." See review

Worth every penny

The hack exceeded every expectation I had. All 3 tour ladies were super friendly, answered questions and kept checking we were happy. My boyfriend had never ridden a horse before this and really enjoyed it. I was able to have a gallop in the end. Learning the tolt and the history behind it was amazing. 100% recommend anyone who wants to experience an Icelandic horse to book with these guys.
One of the highlights of the trip

Beautiful scenery, horses and experience
, Oct 2021
The horses, staff and overall experience was excellent. Beautiful lava formations we rode through. Got opportunity to go faster and trot and ride through a river while my friend split off and walked with others who wished to do so. My horse wanted to go faster but rider in front of me appeared to have trouble and didn’t go as fast. Staff was there to prompt him and I ended up having a wonderful experience. Red lava, beautiful countryside nut to be missed. Enjoyed it!
