What people are saying about Hafnarfjörður
My husband and I took this tour the last day we were in Iceland and it was the perfect ending to our trip. We drove to the site and had no trouble parking and joining our group. We have only ridden horses a few times--and not for many years--and the guides were very helpful and understanding for us as beginners. In addition, our horses were wonderful--gentle and easy to manage! We really enjoyed interacting with the horses and guides, getting to see the beautiful countryside and lava fields, experiencing the different gaits and taking some wonderful pictures! I really appreciated that on the way back we were able to split into groups to go at different paces based on our comfort. Overall it was a really wonderful experience and one of the highlights of our trip!
Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The staff paired horses with riders based on experience, comfort level, and size which was great. The ride was fun and adventurous but the staff also made our family feel safe the entire time. I really liked that the group was split about 1/3 of the way in so that people who wanted to could go faster / trot while riders who did not feel as comfortable still had the option to walk.
Booked this for my daughter (44) and she had the most amazing time with friendly, expert hosts and other crazy horse lovers. I'm not a rider but after seeing the 4 legged upholstered sofas I really wanted a go. Especially as the way they move means you're not bouncing around in the saddle. I'll definitely be booking again. And, considering that Iceland is so expensive, this was brilliant value for money.
Really great experience for a first time rider. the staff was excellent and very accommodating. the landscape was beautiful and the ride was peaceful. the bus picked us up near our hotel accommodations and took us directly to the facilities. facilities were clear and staff provided us with everything we needed to enjoy the experience.
Great ride. Instructors are well organized and well trained. Horses are very gentle. We were all beginners but the horses can operate on “auto pilot”. Need to dress warmly. They have warm overalls and rubber boots if needed. Would book again without hesitation.
