Small Groups - Big Adventures!
How are we different? We enjoy travelling and horse riding in smaller groups. We think it´s more personal and more fun – you spend less time to wait for a big group and more time enjoying the Icelandic horse and the unspoiled Icelandic nature. In our opinion, the optimal group size is between 2-10 people. Our horses mean everything to us and we are very proud of our four-legged team. They are well trained and cared for, easy to ride and with good “Tölt” so you can enjoy the Icelandic way of riding to the fullest. We provide you with high-quality riding equipment and personal service. After every ride, we invite you for coffee, tea, hot chocolate and snack in our stables. We speak English, German, French, Icelandic and Swedish.
All of our horseback riding tours include a light meal, tea and coffee. We provide rain gear, riding gloves and certified safety helmets. Please dress according to weather. Sneakers are usually fine if it’s dry and warm but should bring more appropriate shoe wear if it’s wet or cold. Our staff takes pride in choosing the right horse for every rider, beginners, as well as more experienced riders, are welcome. IMPORTANT: It is not allowed to bring used riding gear to Iceland! There is a high risk of infecting our horses if you bring riding gear such as boots, chaps, gloves.You can bring clothes that have been washed with a disinfectant

Viking Horses has great reviews!
Swords were considered the “heroes weapon” and thought to be very valuable, they were passed down from father to son and were sometimes given names like “Leg-Biter” and “Kings gift”.
ULLR, GOD OF SKIING
To conform to their culture’s beauty ideals, brunette Vikings—usually men—would use a strong soap with a high lye content to bleach their hair. In some regions, beards were lightened as well.
Unbearable Scandinavian winters and frost-bound fjords didn’t stop the Vikings from tucking into their favourite food – fish! During warmer months they would hang up and dry fish to eat later.
