Our reviews

Amazing experience

Top places in Iceland! People were so warm and amazing! Ponies were well taken care of and the scenary was unimaginable! We got great horses and went for a three hour experienced ride. Did great gallops and tölts around lava fields. No negative comments what so ever! It is a must see!

Fun experience in fantastic landscapes!

I'm a beginner at riding and was a bit nervous about the riding tour, but Tora made me relax and feel comfortable. Her horses seem to also be used to beginners. The horse farm and surroundings are so beautiful, so the whole experience was very nice. I would definitely recommend it.

Time well spent

I have always been scared of the horses, but not anymore. After this amazing ride with the cutest horse ever I am looking forward to riding with an Icelandic horse again.We had the most enjoyable evening with those magnificent creatures.

The real feel of Iceland

We arrived without reservations and the owner took care of us immediately. Our three kids had an experience that they will remember for a lifetime. Even though they have not ridden before, were given a quick lesson and the nice horses were an easy ride for the kids. The very charming family farm was a great atmosphere to provide a down to earth feeling of Iceland. While the kids went for a ride, we took a nice walk and checked out other farm animals. Would definitely recommend.
