This is the perfect horse riding tour for those wanting to spend few hours riding in the outskirts of Reykjavik City. The riding distance is about 5-7 km, depending on the experience of the riders. It is suitable for beginners and for those with more experience as we can choose between routes in the area. We will either ride on a beautiful and smooth riding path along the Redhills or, for a group of more experienced riders, we will ride by Rauðarvatn. On both routes, you will enjoy natural riding paths and a wonderful setting for horseback riding where you will get to know the friendly Icelandic horse.
Please note: Hotel Pickup starts 30 minutes in advance, at 20:30. The hotel pickup and drop-off is optional, if you have a car you can skip the hotel pick-up and drive straight to our farm.
