We really enjoyed this experience. The horses were so gentle and well-cared for. Even though the group size we started with was large, we were split into two smaller groups (based on skill level) and actually got a lot more personal time with the guides than expected. They took a break halfway through our ride to make sure we all got photos on our horses which was greatly appreciated. The landscape of mossy lava fields was beautiful and unlike anything I’ve seen before. I would definitely do this experience again or recommend it to a friend.

We loved this experience! The guides were great and friendly. This ride helped my girlfriend become more comfortable on horseback. Great for me cause now she's looking forward to riding with me more often in the future!

Great way to kick off our Iceland trip! The horses are very well trained so even those without much horse experience could feel comfortable. They separate you into two groups based on how fast you want to ride. Nice to have extra boots you can use if you don’t want to get yours muddy.

Very cool experience going through the lava fields by horseback. The guides were good and know how to control the horses. Tip- wear the gear they recommend, it’s incredibly cold in the open fields.

This was such a wonderful experience. I never felt anxious or out of place. The hosts were friendly and kind and full of information. The time we spent with the horses were magical and exceptional. I would absolutely recommend this!

So much fun! Horses are the most gentle you'll ever meet! The guides are knowledgeable, instructive, and patient. The lava fields are of course incredible. So happy we went on this excursion!
