Iceland is famous for its horses. That is why a horseback ride is something you should not miss on your trip to Iceland. You don´t need to be worried if you have never sat on a horse. Because we have calm and well-trained horses for every level of experience. Whilst we recommend the one-hour-ride or our River-Crossing-Special for newbies to horseback riding we offer on the other hand 2-hour-fast-rides for experienced riders. Moreover, for a group of experienced riders, we also offer half-day & day-tours.
On every tour, we adjust the pace of the tour to our guests’ needs. This way you can spend the entire tour just walking or if you want to go fast, you can enjoy the tour on the horses’ special gait tölt or trott. You don´t need to decide before the tour starts whether you want to go fast or slow, as we usually give you the chance to split the group after a while. If you are not sure whether a horseback ride is the right activity for you, you will find all answers about physical conditions and weight limits (99 kg /220 Lbs) also here.
In summer our tours start close to the beautiful river Eyjafjord where we also ride along.
In winter we meet at the stables just out-of-town. Both locations are reachable within a 5-10 minutes drive from the center of Akureyri. Click here to see the locations map.
We offer tours from April till October and around Christmas
