This tour is about 5-7 km, depending on the experience of the riders. It is suitable for beginners and for those with more experience as we can choose between routes in the area. We will either ride on a beautiful and smooth-riding path along the Redhills lava field or, for a group of more experienced riders, we will ride by Rauðarvatn lake. On both routes, you will enjoy natural riding paths and a wonderful setting for horseback riding where you will get to know the friendly Icelandic horse. We ride in small groups and offer personal and friendly service! 

We offer free pickup from Reykjavik

Meeting time for your riding is 30 minutes before set riding time.

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.
