River crossing on horseback

Get to know the unique icelandic horse while traversing lava fields, meadows and streams in the icelandic countryside. Icelandic horses are pure-bred, unchanged since viking times. The icelandic horse is small but sturdy and famously offers a smooth and comfortable ride. This icelandic horse has 5 gaits, with the extra gait known as the “tölt”, a unique attribute among horse breeds. In simple terms the tölt means that the horse always has one foot on the ground, which leads to a smooth, almost bounce free ride. This means that icelandic horseback riding is perfect for beginners.

Our Heritage horseback riding tour is a short tour, suitable for the novice as well as experienced riders. Located on the city outskirts, our house riding Reykjavík base serves as the starting point for this small group tour, which features easy to ride trails. With riding time of 1.5-2 hours, this tour with expert tour guides is the perfect half-day tour. Join us on the best riding tour in Iceland!


If you opt for pickup, please wait at your collection point 60 minutes before the tour start time. If you opt to meet us on location, please arrive 15 minutes before to ensure that the whole group is mustered well in advance.
