Horse Riding, Northern Lights and Geysers

Booking request

For all those who want to travel with a bit more comfort, we are pleased to offer for the first time an autumn and winter tour with hotel accommodation during the whole tour. All rooms with shower/WC and the little bit of extra privacy requested by many of our guests. This tour is equally suited for riders and non-riders since there is always the option of taking part in non-riding activities. Bonfire, Traditional Stories and great Icelandic food combined with visits to the Secret Lagoon and a Northern Lights hunt in the saddle in the dark are fascinating features of this tour! On the way to Reykjavik, we stop and visit Gullfoss and the Geysir Hot Spring Area.
