Horse-Riding Tours in Iceland

Have you ever wanted to go on a horse-riding adventure? Well now’s your chance with Icelandic HorseWorld! Get to know your Icelandic horse while travelling around Iceland with this family-run horse breeding and training farm; home to around 100 horses. They offer a unique chance to get to know their remarkable horses and explore the beautiful landscape on horseback. You will ride in small group rides in the beautiful landscape of southern Iceland.  They specialize in rides for small groups which are seldom bigger than 6 riders.

Do you need to have any previous riding experience?

No, not necessarily. If you have little experience and never tried an Icelandic horse before this ride will give you a great taste of what their horses have to offer. You will be riding a well-educated horse that is fun to ride. They have horses for more experienced riders as well as some very trustworthy horses for beginners and even those who have never ridden before. You receive instructions on how to ride and you have a chance to get to know your horse before you leave for your ride. All this takes place in their modern and large riding hall.

You’ll ride for an hour on good, soft and fairly broad tracks with views over volcanoes and glaciers. You may see the young horses playing in the fields and will hear and see plenty of Icelandic birds. The tracks are easy for the horses which means you can concentrate on the view and enjoy the ride. The only reason you might regret taking this tour is that it may lead you to want to ride more. You are invited for a coffee, tea or hot chocolate in their cosy stable café after the ride. It is also possible for non-riders to wait in the stable café while you ride.
