Horse Riding Iceland
Horseback Riding in Iceland
The program of Extreme Iceland has something for every taste. The multi-day tours require good riding skills and knowledge of horses, while the day tours with departure from our Riding Center, are well suited for people with little or none riding experience. Thus everyone has an opportunity to experience the nature of Iceland in an exquisite company of men and horses.
We offer day tours 10 min from Reykjavik. Most of our day tours are suitable for beginners. We offer many combo tours to make the most of your day. Or if you want to finish your day with a horse riding tour you can go on our Twilight Tour.
Countryside tours are our most popular riding tours. In Countryside Tours it is recommended to have some riding experience. You will go riding in Icelandic countryside and everything is included. You will get good Icelandic traditional food (lamb and fish)
The Highland Tours are for advanced riders. Riders need to be comfortable and in control at all paces, firm seat, comfortable in the saddle for up to 7 hrs. per day. One of our Highland tour was nominated as one of the 10 best trails in the world.
Round Up Tours
The round-up of sheep is an Icelandic tradition with roots back in the past when pastures and fields near the farms were so precious that they had to be kept for the hay harvest. Thus the stock was driven to the mountains during the summer.
