    The horse riding was amazing. The scenery was beautiful especially the waterfall. The horses were fun to ride at all gaits. The lunch was delicious and staff at the farm very friendly and helpful
    The Golden Circle tour was also great. Darren the tour guide made the day very interesting and he provided many helpful tips for our Iceland visit. The first stop should have been slightly longer. We felt rushed and felt we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful landscape fully
    I would highly recommend this tour

    We rode the Icelandic Horses on my 8 year old daughter's birthday. It was a wonderful and lovely time. While we aren't expert riders, the little bit of experience riding allowed us to participate in the "fast group" returning back to the stable which was quite a thrill. The guides were pleasant and knowledgable. The gait of these special horses was so smooth and enjoyable. I highly recommend!

    Riding the Icelandic Ponies was more fun than we expected. The people were well organized and very friendly. Terrific experience!!

    Really a lot of fun. The horse riding was excellent and fun for all levels of horse riding experience. The falls were gorgeous and the geyser was great. Our guide Deryn even told us where we could go to have some fun in Reykjavik

    The Viking Horse Riding was such a great experience. It was a highlight of our trip! When you first get to the farm, you will put on rain pants, jacket, helmet and boots. Also, remember to grab gloves or your hands will be very cold by the end of the ride. Then, the staff will set you up with a horse for your experience level. As a group with the staff you will ride into the country side of Iceland. The views are breathtaking and are only able to be experienced from the horse out in nature. On the ride the horses will all stay together, but you will have opportunities to trot and gallop a little on the horse. The staff are very helpful if you are an inexperienced rider. Half way through you will stop for a rest at a beautiful waterfall. Then, you will journey back to the farm. After you change out of the rain gear, you will have lunch on the farm while you wait for the Golden Circle tour bus to pick you up. The lunch is soup and bread and you do have to pay for it. As everything in Iceland, it is expensive, but it does hit the spot after being out in the cold on the horses. You will have to wait around for about an hour before the bus for the Golden Circle tour will pick you up.

    The viking horse ride was so much fun!! The horses are well trained and the staff is very friendly. Really made me feel like a local to go horseback riding through the nearby roads, trails, and river.

    One of a kind experience! Went in Jan and it was so cool! The people at the farm were really nice and the animals were treated very well. This is for sure one of our tours we won't forget. Riding in the snow on these beautiful horses was great. Nice and warm with the gear they provided. I would love to come back and do it again.
