Our experienced tour guides will take you on an unforgettable ride along the golden shoreline below Snæfellsjökull, on Hraunlandarif beach, between Búdir and Arnarstapi, where magnificent views are to be enjoyed. The speed depends on the attending group members. Usually, it’s a rather slow and easy tour. Therefore, you don’t need riding experience to join.
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.
