  • 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!

  • Too many people on the ride

  • We were in Reykjavik for the marathon and decided that riding an Icelandic horse was a must-do for the trip. Pick up was convenient and right on time. The horseback riding was the highlight of our trip to Reykjavik. The family and staff were friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable. The horses were gentle, calm and obviously well-cared for. Even the most inexperienced riders seemed to feel very comfortable. The views and terrain were absolutely beautiful. On the way back, it was nice to have the group broken up into experienced/inexperienced riders so that new riders could continue to feel safe and experienced riders could enjoy moving at a faster pace. The ride ended with beer and bread before heading back to Reykjavik. We will definitely be time opting for one of the longer rides!

  • This tour was great although there was a lot of waiting around due to the fact that 30+ people out at a time. The tray and canter was a lot of fun. Nice horses.

  • enjoyed the whole experience

  • My teen age granddaughters loved the horse riding activity. The two hour ride was a little much for Grandpa. We were picked up at our ship and collected other participants at the Gray Line depot. It was about a 20 minute drive to the farm. The setting is beautiful and all the staff is friendly and helpful. You can bring your own gloves or use theirs. It takes a while to get all the riders seated on a horse which has been selected for each individual. Our driver turned out to be the owner and many of the workers are family members.

  • I will tell my friends about the horse ride. It was very enjoyable and professionally run. Well cared for horses.

  • This was one of the best trail rides I've been on. We had a wonderful time. The scenery was beautiful and the horses were responsive with great temperaments. They are a joy to ride. Thank you Laxness farms for the wonderful ride.
