    Stop: 2 hours -
    At Skjaldarvik we offer riding tours where people get a chance to learn about the Icelandic horse under expert supervision. Go horseback riding on the sturdy and friendly Icelandic horse in the beautiful nature of North Iceland. This adventure is the ideal choice for horse lovers, families and groups wanting to experience the Icelandic landscape on horseback, just as the Icelandic people have done since the Age of Settlement. You will be on the actual tour, riding the horse for 1 full hour. We do not count the time getting prepared, helmets, and safety talk as part of the actual tour time, so you will have lots of time to enjoy riding around on the horses!
