The Kings Trail – Horse riding

The King’s trail is a fantastic tour that will take you across the western highlands from the wonderful Vatnsdalur Valley in the north to the magnificent nation Þingvellir in the south. There is some unique history behind The King’s trail as in 1907 the king of Denmark visited the king of Iceland which forced locals to make the paths and routes better for visiting the kings in the old parliament. That is why today it is called the king’s trial. This historic trail is filled with information over a thousand years old. You will visit places like the Þingvellir National park which is the best place to visit in the whole of Iceland and there is no better way to arrive than on horseback.
