Overview

Riding tours on our wonderful Icelandic horses in a beautiful landscape. We have horses suited for everybody from the age of 6 :-) Our regular tour suits every one, a slow and easy riding tour, during around 1 hour in the surroundings of our beautiful village Vik, including a ride on the black beach towards the famous Reynisdrangar. The tours are always fun and enjoyable and especially suited for beginners and people that have never ridden a horse before :-)

Our large group of 12 really enjoyed the views of the black sand beach. The horses are so beautiful and the guides were incredibly helpful. The only downside is the trail we were on. We went from the stable to the black sand beach and...More
