The Viking Tour starts with an introductory ride into the lava fields surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano to the old Kaldársel sheep corral, or to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides. You will soon be well acquainted with both the horses and your surroundings.
Next we head straight back into the adventure of exploring the Reykjanes preservation area. We cross the Kaldá River, ride around the old volcano Mt. Helgafell or into the beautiful Heiðmörk Nature Park with all its strange lava formations and the ancient Gjáarrétt sheep corral, made from lava stones.
View rough lava fields and look for different formations in the lava, maybe you will be able to spot a troll or two.
