What people are saying about Southern Region, Iceland

My sister and I took this tour in February; everything was covered in snow and so beautiful! The guides were well equipped to help us deal with the weather by provided any necessary gear and outerwear - no worries there. The horses are friendly and easy for a beginner. We passed a road (convenient to get to the farm, but not scenic), but soon were in a snow-covered lava field. We were far from the road and the pictures the guide took were great. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Five-star tour ⭐️ Great ride! The instructor was nice and helpful since I’m a beginner in horse riding. Beautiful landscapes and quite relaxing activity to do in Iceland. Horses are super cute and friendly. Also the pick-up and drop-off was on time and comfortable.

Everything was fantastic. Great for all rider levels. Instructors are patient and the horses are gentle and smart. The variety of terrain is excellent, especially the Red lava! I highly recommend this activity. Pickup is possible and very punctual.

Fantastic experience. The girls who took me out for a ride were great guides and good company as I was travelling on my own. Would recommend to anyone who is staying in Reykjavík as it is very close to the city.

I was a bit nervous at first and the guides were extremely helpful and understanding. The views are amazing and the animals are kind and tamed. Beautiful experience.
