The short tour.
Are you short on time, but want to squeeze in a fun experience and ride the famous Icelandic horse? We offer a tour that is designed to be an enjoyable experience for beginners that do not have much time but want to get the awesome experience of riding an Icelandic horse in their itinerary. The whole experience begins with an intro on how to ride the Icelandic horse, then a lesson where you ride your horse and practice how to control the horse so you and the horse can be a good team for the ride. Then you go out on an approx. 1 hour ride at a slow and safe speed (the horse goes in the gait “walk”). For 6 years old and older. Children younger than 10 years old are sometimes on a horse that is led by one of our guides.
Duration and price:
Duration of the whole experience (intro, lesson, ride) is ca. 1 1/2 hours.
10 000 ISK per person.
Guaranteed private tour:
18 000 ISK per person.
It is fine for 1. time beginners.
Add-on option: The geothermal mineral bath:
On top of this it is super popular by groups of 10 people or less, to add on going to our indoor geothermal mineral bath (where you also can take a shower) for relaxation and fun, for maybe an hour. You get that as a very cheap add-on option for 1900 ISK per person. More info here.
Add-on option: Icelandic traditional waffle lunch with a variety of drinks:
On top of this it is super popular to add on getting Icelandic tradional heart-shaped waffles with a choice of toppings, as many per person as you like. Toppings are either homemade blueberry jam, or the traditional Icelandic way (with homemade rhubarb jam), also whipped cream (if you like), or simply Nutella chocolate spread or maple sirup. Also with good real coffee, a choice of teas, or excellent quality dark hot chocolate (with cream if you like), and carbonated fizzy water if you like. You get that as a very cheap add-on lunch option to the other options for 1900 ISK per person.
