I had an amazing experience! I was a little nervous at first, but once I got the hang of it and control of the horse it was fabulous. The views were stunning and the staff was extremely helpful and kind. Pick up and drop off we’re super easy to navigate.

We rode the horses for about 1.5-2 hours, longer than I expected. The guides were really nice and helpful. They provide rain suits if you chose to borrow them (which I did bc it inevitably rained). Be prepared to trot with your horse (not as fast as a gallop but not walking either, like a jog). The third trot was the best bc I knew what to expect by then.

We only came on this trip as our original tour was cancelled but now we’re so glad we did! The price was reasonable in comparison to other prices in Reykjavik and it was so much fun. The tour guides were lovely & the views we past were beautiful. This was my first time riding a horse so it’s definitely suitable for beginners
