Under the Volcano - 4,5 hour Horse Riding Tour │ Icelandic Horse World

Under the Volcano - 4,5 hour Horse Riding Tour │ Icelandic Horse World

Best pick for experienced riders

​You will ride over rivers and have wonderful riding paths with breathtaking views of the volcano Hekla, glaciers, and the river Rangá. The landscape is diverse ranging from an Icelandic forest to lava fields, to soft grassy meadows. We will ride plenty of tölt, making short stops to rest the horses and give you a chance to take pictures. We take a lunch break at an old well where the soft grass invites you to lie down and enjoy the scenery.

We have called this ride under the volcano as you will have a view of Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull most of the way and you will be riding through landscape that has been shaped by the lava and ashes from previous volcanic eruptions. Apart from a lovely ride this is also a beautiful day in the Icelandic nature. A hot drink awaits when we return to Skeiðvellir and you have time to have a look round the stable before you depart. 

Minimum 2 persons.
