I was SO excited for this tour and it did not disappoint!! They provided gloves which we forgot to bring—and thank god, because it got pretty chilly during the ride. They gave us time to meet the horses before we rode and gave a quick tutorial on riding before we were off. So,

Thank you for your review! We wish we could simply call the tour Absolutely Amazing Adventure (AAA), but we had to find a more marketable name for it. This doesn't change the fact that this tour is indeed a must do if you are in the area. :) Joins us again for a ride if you ever visit Varmahlíð again.

My 13 yr old nephew and I consider this our best experience in Iceland. We had a great guide that helped my beginner nephew have an incredible time. We loved walking thru the river, toelting, and we even got to gallop. The landscapes we’re breathtaking!!

This was an amazing experience! It'd been a while since I'd been horseback riding and a long time since my friend had ridden but that didn't matter at all. We booked the 2 hour ride and it was literally just 3 of us all in plus the instructor. The views are absolutely stunning

Dear CanadianWithWanderlust, Thank you very much for spending a day with us on horseback in the countryside! It's great to hear you had a pleasant time riding Nótt and Björn. They are looking forward to take you on a ride again if you visit us once more. Just bring some carrots for them and they will take you anywhere! :)
