Ideal for people with no experience and people who are used to ride, as group splits after 20 min
In summer (mid of May – October), our 1-hour guided horseback riding tour leads along the beautiful River called Eyjafjord with view over the surrounding mountains. The slow and fast tour start together. After appox. 20 minutes we split up the group and you can decide then whether you would like to continue to go slowly (just walk) or go faster (tölt/trott – galopp only for very experienced riders). On our fast tour, we also cross a river, if the water is not too deep :)
Special: River Crossing on the fast tour
You are an inexperienced rider and think that you would just like to go slow but don´t want to miss the river crossing? Then take a look at our River Crossing Special 🙂
In the wintertime (November – mid of May) , we change our location. Then the riding tour leads along trails below the skiing area with stunning view over the fjord and Akureyri. At this location we only ride with very small groups.
