Full description
For beginners prepare for a very informative hour since this tour is designed as a lesson. The first half of the tour will be where you will learn all the basics of Icelandic horsemanship. Then you will head out for a wonderful Valley Ride. On the valley ride, you will be introduced to the beauty of Engidalur. You will go at the pace you are comfortable with and take all precautions possible to make sure that you feel secure. The tour guide will have a GoPro camera mounted on their helmet so your tour will be documented for your pleasure.

For advanced riders, you will get tips to enjoy the special traits and gaits of the Icelandic horse. You will ride more advanced horses for more experienced riders and go at a faster pace. Since you will go at a faster pace you will also cover more ground. The tour guide will have a GoPro camera mounted on their helmet so your tour will be documented for your pleasure. Keep in mind that riders that have experience in a different breed than ours may still have things to learn about riding Icelandic horses. No two breeds are exactly the same and no two horses are exactly the same.

For mixed groups, if your group has both beginners and advanced riders you can still enjoy the experience together. The tour guide will, of course, stay with the beginners and give them all the help and support they need, but the advanced riders who have more advanced horses and give them more freedom to leave the group. Advanced riders can ride at a faster pace in the opposite direction from where the beginner group is heading and return to the group.
