About the Horseback riding in Iceland: Soft river banks

This day tour in Iceland is for experienced riders who want to ride Icelandic horses in an extraordinary environment. We start the day tour on nice trails along our Icelandic meadows which are perfect for trying the special gait of the Icelandic horse, tölt. We continue the horse riding on a grassland, across the river Gljúfurá to an old cemetery, and further down to the mighty glacier river, Ölfusá. From there we have a view of the river and, if weather permits, the famous volcanoes Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull. We ride through a bird sanctuary before we return to our farm.

What am I going to experience?

√ Amazing tracks that only few icelantic have explored
√ Hot springs
√ Volcanic carters some with geothermal smoking
√ Black sandy beaches
√ Lake Kleifarvatn and Djúpavatn
