What to bring:
This horse riding tour takes us through meadows, lava fields and a small river. On our way we enjoy the nice scenery of volcanic mountains and farmland, passing several farms which give us an idea of how agriculture has developed in the last decades. Nice riding trails give a good opportunity to experience the special gait of the Icelandic horse, the “tölt”. At the end of the tour you are invited for coffee and home-baked cake.
The Icelandic horse is a breed of horse developed in Iceland. The horse is smaller than most horses, and some people even think they are ponies. Icelandic law prevents horses from being imported into the country and exported animals are not allowed to return so therefor the Icelandic horses are often long-lived and hardy. The Icelandic horse displays two gaits in addition to the typical walk, trot, and canter/gallop commonly displayed by other breeds.
