Perfect for those who have a fair amount of experience or are used to ride 🙂
Our 2-hour guided horseback riding tour leads either towards the beautiful River called Eyjafjord and along its east bank or in the forest of Akureyri. For this tour, you need to have riding experience as we are going to ride trot/tölt and on the forest tour also galopp. It is not just walking. How oftern we go faster, depends on your level of experience and your wishes 🙂 It can be from just a little bit troting/tölting to going lots of galopp. Please note that we only go galopp with very experienced riders who have ridden galopp many times before. Our horses go proper fast galopp – not canter 😉
- Riding along the river: When we ride along the river we also do a river crossing, if the water is not too deep.
- Riding to the forest (NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN 2019): Riding to and into the forest, on the other hand, is perfect for going a lot of galopp. This tour is only for very experienced riders.
