We had a great experience with the horse riding from being picked up on time to being dropped off. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. A great family run business.

The farm , the farm keepers were very nice , horses were amazing


The farm and horses were amazing. It was lovely and I spent great time there. Though there was an issue with my pick up. I ordered the tour in the evening and in the morning probably stuff didn't process my order and I was forgotten to get picked up. So I had to to call twice being in roaming as a tourist. The good thing is that I was eventually picked up and taken to the horse farm . Gray Line sent a bus just for me.

I booked this trip online while still in the US. When booking a pick up location, there is a drop down menu to choose your pick up point. I chose 'airport' since I planned to pack in an excursion immediately upon arrival. Well apparently they don't pick up at the airport. I got an email from the Horse Farm dumping the matter back on Gray Line and Gray Line didn't really fix it via email, but once I arrived at the airport and found a real person it got straightened out. Gray Line got me on a bus from the airport to their main terminal and I made my excursion just fine. This was a very good excursion, I'd do it again. The staff is very attentive and our group had a wide range of ages, nationalities and experience on a horse. The horse farm outfits you in snowsuits and has hats and gloves to borrow if you don't have any (and what are you doing in Iceland without a hat or gloves?!) The trail was mostly flat and it was the land around the horse farm. We went through shallow streams and snow drifted roads. The mountains are all around and at this time of year the sun starts really coming out at around 11, so we saw the sun come up. The horses are sturdy and calm and mostly mindful of their novice riders..if not, there is a guide in front and back to make sure everything is going smoothly. If you are looking for a thundering gallop, this isn't your tour, but if you just want to enjoy a quiet morning seeing great scenery on the back of a horse, this is for you.

For horse lovers !


Very good organisation. Very friendly people. My daughter is in love with the horses. Next time I prefer a private walk or even a bigger tour with some more active riding....

GrayLine is perfect for booking amazing trips in iceland. They were always on time, waited for us because one time we were 5 min late and all the staff - from bus drivers to guides to the people on the computer/telefone were really friendly. They did everything to make our trip perfect and they did certainly not fail! Thank you, GrayLine! We booked the airport transfer, the Golden Circle Classic Tour, the Northern Lights Mystery Tour, Blue Lagoon and the Laxnes Special.
