Icelandic Horse Riding Tour

See Iceland on horseback as you ride across lava fields, past glaciers and along beaches on an exhilarating tour. From half or full-day trips to multi-day adventures, there’s a huge range of tours to choose from, so spend some time researching before booking your once in a lifetime experience.

Whether you’re an experienced rider or a total beginner, you’ll soon be comfortable in the saddle as you tour through varied landscapes and across different terrains. Travel as part of a group or go on a private tour as you follow ancient trails and discover more about this beautiful country on horseback. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even take a wilderness tour and ride with a herd of wild horses just like the Icelandic people of times gone by.

Riding through mountains and alongside rivers with the wind in your hair, you’ll feel perfectly at one with nature. After a few hours of riding, you’ll get the chance to relax as you make a stop at the hot springs. Get off your horse and let your body recover in the naturally warm waters before continuing on your journey.

After a long day in the saddle, tuck into freshly made Icelandic food before spending the night at an eco hotel or a remote mountain hut. On multi-day trips, remember to pack warm clothing as it can get cold in the evening. And don’t forget your camera, as there’ll be plenty of opportunities to capture photos of unforgettable memories during the tour.
