I read some of the bad reviews and they're not wrong but they probably should've done a different ride. We did the 1 hour ride around the farm. It was bad weather but they provided all the gear, including 66 degree rain gear which was...More

I rode an adorable Icelandic horse, with such a very lovely nature, called Nota. We went out on a just over 2 hours ride, with a very wonderful guide called Kim. All the horses were a lovely temperament. The lava paths were great to ride...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We will be staying in Selfoss. Are you close to our location? Do you accept all ages? My mother, who is in good physical shape, wants to ride an Icelandic horse but she's 85. If the horses are gentle, which I've heard they are, would you allow her to ride? We probably should limit riding time to 1 1/2 hours at the most.
