Description

Black Beach private riding tour

There is only one tour like this!

If you are staying with us on the farm, you get this very special opportunity of riding with us to the Black Beach. The Beach (Landeyjarsandur) is the longest black beach in Iceland and is completely deserted – a place to experience infinity.

The ride will take us down by the river all the way to its end where it floats into the Atlantic Ocean. Again, we will be riding the same paths as the Vikings in our great Sagas, and I will tell you their tales as we ride past their farms. We ride all the way down to the ocean, take a break there to rest the horses and then we head back where we probably will take another route.

We start the tour in the morning at 9:00 and are back at around noon.
This tour is not for beginners.

We can’t wait to ride with you, feel free to contact us for any questions you might have.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you can’t find what you are looking for, about our farm or about our horse riding tours in south coast, contact us or use this search form:

Should beginners ride Icelandic horses?

This is probably the most asked question we get from our guests and the answer is ABSOLUTELY YES! However, it is important that you go to the right farm with the right kind of horses that will fit your riding level.

In order for you to get a real experience you should have a riding lesson so you can control your horse. Many of the large operators have horses that have been taking the same circle for years and in our mind that is not a horse friendly and definitely not a authentic horse riding experience. You want a horse that is in good mental and physical health that is going to create a true relationship with the rider which takes the experience to another level.

During your riding lessons we make sure that rider and horse develop a connection that is real, and rider feels in control of the situation but at the same time the horse accepts the rider as its leader. This is often the most rewarding part of the entire tour and not only enjoying a magic scenery but experiencing the trust that rider and horse share.

Do you offer private horse riding tours?

Yes we do – just send us an email with your requirement and we will respond directly.

Do you offer pick-ups and drop offs?

Yes we do offer pick-ups. But you need to request in advance.

Do you offer vegetarian meals?

Yes we do. Just inform us in advance on you food preferences.

Do I need to be an experienced horse rider to ride with you?
