Horse Riding in Iceland
Riding a pure bred Icelandic horse
, with its unique five gaits, is an experience not to be missed. Brought to Iceland when the country was settled in the 9th century the horse was the only means of transportation across the rugged landscape for many centuries. Sure-footed and hardy these native horses have adapted extremely well to the tough terrain and remain the purest breed in the world.
The Rafting & Riding
multi-activity tour from Reykjavík
ticks all the boxes for a memorable day trip – spending time in the saddle enjoying these magnificent horses, rafting down the Hvítá River
and being surrounded by spectacular scenery.
