Our horses are of the finest quality and are for all levels of riders. Horse riding should be your best experience while in Iceland – Horse riding the way it is supposed to be.
We start our day with an introduction to the Icelandic horse along with a horseback riding lesson. Once you are ready we then go for a ride on our horses. We ride in a beautiful valley and finish our day having a local organic lamb for lunch.
We are located only 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavík on offer pickups from our nearest bus stop in Mosfellsbær. Just send us a note and we will come and pick you up for your dream horse ride Iceland.
All riding tours start with a riding lesson by an Icelandic professional riding instructor. During the horseback riding lesson, you will get to know how to control and ride the Icelandic horse. When you are comfortable in the saddle we go for the ride of your life and enjoy horseback riding Iceland.
To ride the Icelandic horse through the clean nature of Iceland is the best way to experience the amazing country and our horse riding lifestyle.

I can’t say enough about today. The valley is beautiful. The horses were majestic, happy, and extremely well taken care of. Hordur is a knowledgeable, fascinating, and genuine person and made me feel very comfortable despite not having ridden a horse since childhood. This was hands down one of the best experiences of my entire life. Authentic and magical. The lunch was wonderful, the home and farm were beautiful, and I learned so much! I will treasure the memory of this experience forever! Please book this experience. I guarantee it will be the highlight of your trip.

I have done a lot of traveling and a lot of excursions and adventures but this one truly tops them all. Hordur is the most gracious host I’ve ever encountered and he truly made this experience something special to me. The horses and his expertise along with his generosity are unmatched in any other experience I’ve ever had. I feel I’ve made a true friend and will absolutely return to Iceland to take this adventure to the next level!

Our experience with Hordur at his horse farm was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He was extremely knowledgable and took the time to talk about his experience with horses, and share a background about the horses themselves. We were also fortunate to have some great fellow travelers sharing the experience with us and Hordur also made sure to build a great group dynamic. He took time to make us all feel comfortable and safe with the horses, and then we got a quick riding lesson after brushing and saddling our horses. The horseback riding itself was amazing!!!!!!! His two dogs are also adorable. After, we had the best meal of our whole trip in his beautiful farmhouse. I loved that he also took time to really cultivate meaningful stories with the group and shared lots of interesting facts about his experiences in Iceland. This is truly a personalized experience that is NOTHING like those tour buses or other things you may find online. Thank you for making this such a great morning on your beautiful farm.

Ride like a Icelander and eat like a Viking! This experience blew our minds – a must if you’re in Iceland. The horses were so calm and affectionate, felt extremely safe the whole time and the ride was very scenic. Hordur is a great guy and a fantastic cook. Loved it!

Hordur’s love for what he does shows. He took his time explaining and introducing us to his beautiful horses, and taught us how to understand and ride them. By far this was the highlight of my 8 days in Iceland, and I’ll always remember meeting the wonderful people in this experience, and us all becoming more confident and relaxed riding the beautiful Icelandic horses, as well as sharing a delicious meal together. It was a meditative and relaxing experience. Thank you again Hordur for your hospitality, and sharing your love and passion with us all! You’re truly gifted at what you do, and I appreciate how you created this unique experience to share it!

This was by far the best part of my experience in Iceland. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You must come to the farm and see this for yourself. You will never forget it.

What an absolutely fantastic experience! From the moment we got there we felt welcome and at ease. He explained everything in detail and made sure we were comfortable with the horses before riding out. We got to see beautiful scenery, we sang and shared stories. After, we enjoyed an incredible meal in his beautiful home and it was just extremely wonderful. I would absolutely love to come back and do this again. Truly an amazing experience.

I can’t begin to describe how amazing this experience was. If you’re going to the Reykjavik area, even just for a day, I recommend meeting with Hordur. He knows so much about Iceland and its history, and he is very welcoming and friendly. Excellent communication before our meeting, and super friendly in person. The Icelandic horses are beautiful and you can tell Icelanders are proud of these animals. This is a unique chance to get to know a bit more about them. We had no prior knowledge of horse riding, but felt like both we and the horses were in great hands throughout the day. The food was wonderful too. Thank you guys so much!
