The total duration of this tour is 4-5 hours. This tour will take you through some of the most scenic places in Iceland. We start with a beautiful beach ride and then we enter a completely new scenery in the ancient lava field of Búðarhraun. Taking our horses through the stone marked path that Icelanders have travelled through for 1200 years, we ride past the lava tube cave of Búðarhellir, where we get the chance to rest up and explore.
Afterward, the journey takes us to Búðir and past its famous black church, before entering the longest beach of Iceland and one of the most popular riding beaches on the planet called Löngufjörur.
After some time of riding, we take one last look at the pulsating beauty of the North Atlantic before riding home beside the blossoming mountain roots of Breiðavík.
There is no riding experience necessary to join us on this tour. However, we do require a general level of fitness and confidence around horses, because we have to mount and dismount the horses several times during this trip.
We ride at a medium to fast speed, depending on the attending group members.
Health and Safety information
Our horseback riding tours are completely suitable for people who have never gone horseback riding before. However, we do not recommend horseback riding if you have problems with your hips, knees, or your back. Riders should be able to mount unaided from the ground without a step stool.
Also, the riders have to be able to hold the reins and follow the guides’ instructions at all times, so a reasonable level of English is required. Riding during pregnancy is very risky and we reserve the right to exclude riders from our tours in case of pregnancy or severe physical impairment.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
