  • My horse Indiana Jones took me on a great adventure!!

  • Unfortunately we missed this tour due to a miscommunication. An email was sent changing the pickup location less than an hour prior to pickup, which we did not see until it was too late. Since the rest of our visit was fully booked we did not pursue trying to re-schedule the tour so we do not know how accommodating they may have or have not been. Disappointing but if given the opportunity we would try it again.

  • This was so much fun. The people that ran the tour were so friendly. The horses were unlike any I’ve ridden, so laid back and easy. We crossed icy rivers and spent lots of personal time with the horses. Highly recommend

  • What an amazing experience. The owner of the farm picked us up and immediately made us feel welcome. He has a great sense of humor and truly cares that you have a great experience.
    The horses were beautiful and the landscape they took us through was breathtaking. The guides that accompanied us were always watching out for everyone's safety.
    Thank you for this experience!!

  • This was one of the highlights of our trip. HIGHLY recommend. This originally was one of the optional tours on our itinerary and we weren't sure we were going to go through with booking. We would have been VERY sorry if we had decided to skip out. We were picked up at our hotel, taken to the beautiful farm, given warm wind resistant clothes to put on, and then went out to the paddock to have a horse selected for us. The best part about this trip is they give you a horse based on your experience. I'm a rider, so I wanted a fast horse who would provide an adventure to remember. Vinir meaning friend was the best horse ever for what I wanted out of the excursion. He was fast paced and very polite. The tour group splits into two after the waterfall midway, the slow group and the fast group. I opted for the fast group and the ride home was exhilarating. The tour guides are excellent at making sure everyone is comfortable along the way. DO THIS TOUR!

  • A superb tour from start to finish. Meeting and interacting with the horses was in itself a great experience. The views are awesome too! You do not need to have any type of experiences to ride the horse.

  • Loved this! What a great adventure! I'm an experienced rider and my travel companion is not. We both had a wonderful time even though it was pelting rain and cold! The gait of the Icelandic horses is truly unique and must be experienced. It is so comfortable I felt like I could ride all day long. The horses are also very gentle and calm so even the most nervous rider would have a good ride. We rode through small rivers and through a winding path. The people at Laxnes Farn were friendly and outfitted us so we were dressed for the weather, matched us with our horses and then did a good job of shepherding us through the ride so everyone had a safe and fun experience. Highly recommended!
