This popular tour is ideal for families and those who do not have the required riding experience for our highland tours. The riding days can be long so you still need to be in good physical shape and have a basic knowledge of horsemanship.
On the first riding day you will get acquainted with the Icelandic horse and its special gaits on a relaxed ride along majestic Thjórsá River. We then ride towards magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall and the hot springs area of Geysir. After a relaxed day riding in that area we experience riding along the edges of civilization. We cross the highland moor of Hrunaheiði and enjoy good riding tracks when riding past Hrepphólar basalt columns on our way back to Kálfhóll Farm.
