Tour description

What is better than spending half a day on a horse? 
This 4-hour tour starts at 10 am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the summertime.

On this half-day Red Lava horse riding tour, we will, as the name implies, go to the great Red Lava hills. The lava hills were formed by a volcano that erupted about 5200 years ago. We will have a relaxing ride around and through the hills on excellent riding roads in a stunning landscape. On this tour, you get to experience the Icelandic tölt to the fullest! The Icelandic horse is best known for the tölt, and if you are an experienced rider, we recommend this tour. We have well-trained horses all year round for this red lava horse riding tour. 

Please remember to dress according to the weather and bring a camera.

If you have your car, please be at our location (Surtlugata 19, 110 Reykjavik) 30 min before the set riding time.
