Tour details

Make your dream come true and get acquainted with the Icelandic horse. It is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 8th century. The Icelandic horse is small but sure-footed, docile, enduring and extremely strong.

Enjoy a 2 hours riding tour on the outskirts of the capital and get to know the horse that has managed to serve the natives for centuries in the harsh landscape of Iceland.
After the riding experience, enjoy a lunch break before heading to the national park, Þingvellir, with its unique geological features, natural beauty and historical importance. At Þingvellir, Alþingi (the Icelandic parliament) was founded in 930, which makes it the oldest known functioning parliament in the world. From there we visit the impressive waterfall Gullfoss and the geothermal area Geysir with its spouting hot springs. After a short drive, we will be back in the capital.
