Itinerary

ITINERARY

The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 9th century. With the help of one of our beautiful horses, you can ride through the idyllic landscape of Laxnes, just out of Reykjavik city. The riding tour is suitable for all experience levels, from beginner to expert, It is a fantastic way to see the countryside.

After the riding experience there will be about an hour to relax and have a something to eat before we join our Golden Circle Afternoon tour, which leaves Reykjavík at 13:00. From there, the tour heads to the National Park Þingvellir, with its remarkable geological features. The Icelandic Parliament - Alþingi - was founded on the site in 930 AD, making it the oldest still-functioning parliament in the world.

The tour will also visit the impressive glacial waterfall Gullfoss, the Geysir geothermal area and Strokkur hot spring. On the return journey, you will travel through beautiful agricultural areas before heading back to Reykjavík over the mountain heath Hellisheiði.
