From Reykjavik: Full-Day Horse Riding & Golden Circle Tour

1. From Reykjavik: Full-Day Horse Riding & Golden Circle Tour

This tour is a combination of the Viking Horse Riding Tour and Golden Circle Express Tour, and is perfect for visitors to Iceland who don’t have a lot of time to spare but want to make the most of a day. In the morning you’ll enjoy a ride on an Icelandic horse through the idyllic landscape of Laxnes, located just out of Reykjavik city. The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 9th century. The riding tour is suitable for all ages and experience levels, from beginner to expert. After your morning ride and a short break you’ll head out on the afternoon portion of the tour, to Þingvellir National Park. Admire its remarkable geological features and see Alþingi, the Icelandic Parliament. Iceland’s Parliament is the oldest still-functioning parliament in the world, and was founded on this site in 930 A.D. Visit the impressive Gullfoss glacial waterfall, the geothermal area around Geysir, and Strokkur with its spouting geysers. You’ll pass through fertile agricultural areas before heading back to Reykjavik over Hellisheiði mountain heath.

the Entire experience was wonderful, collection was exactly on time from Our bus stop and the trips was organised extremely well. The horse riding was fantastic and the horses extremely well trained. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly so would definitely recommend. Our tour guide and driver for the golden circle tour were fantastic and very informative. We enjoy every part of this excursion.

We thoroughly enjoyed the horse riding, the staff were so welcoming and we were well looked after. Despite never having ridden before the ride was very comfortable and with a range of different terrain including river crossings i couldn't have had more fun! Couldn't recommend it more and will be returning one day to see the ponies again.

we liked the combination of riding an Icelandic horse first and then being picked up for the golden circle. cozy guided tour with a good guide who gave us the history of Iceland and what it is like to live / live there today. there was also plenty of time at each stop, which made it a comfortable trip without stress.

10/09/2021 The driver and guide were very professional. The bus driver was amazing, he made an extra stop for us near the geyser, so we could take selfies with an icelandic horse I had a wonderful trip.

The weather was awful,but the clothes, people,and horses made up for it,brilliant morning,loved it,great ride
