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.
