Bring the family on a horseback riding adventure in the Icelandic countryside. Icelandic horses are gorgeous to look at, easy to ride and unintimidating even for the youngest members of the family. On top of that, they’re extremely friendly. This is the ideal tour for the whole family.

This is a relatively short tour of only 2 hours, and goes at a slower speed than similar excursions, making it suitable for the whole family. Like Iceland’s Viking ancestors you will ride through Iceland’s countryside, admiring its nature. In summer you can enjoy the bright days and green grass, and in winter you can admire the white blanket of snow covering the beautiful landscape, making you feel like you’re riding through a winter wonderland.

The route you’ll take will depend on the season and the weather, but can perhaps head through verdant fields or a black and white sandy beach nearby. There’s plenty of beautiful landscapes surrounding the town of Þorlákshöfn where you’ll start your journey. Pick-ups and drop-offs in Reykjavík are available for an extra fee; otherwise, you can meet on location – the town is on Iceland’s South Coast, a mere 45-minute drive from Reykjavík.

No matter the age of your family members, this is an experience you can all enjoy together and will remember for years to come.

This tour is available all year round and suitable for children of all ages; as long as they are comfortable on a horse, they can go for a ride. For the absolute youngest kids, your guide will make sure that they get to at least try sitting on the horse.

Don’t miss this family-friendly horseback ride. Check availability by choosing a date.
