About the tour
What to expect from this tour
After a short but scenic beach ride on our very own Hraunlandarif, we leave the wide ocean to our right and beautiful mountains to our left behind and enter a completely new scenery in the ancient lava field of Búðarhraun. Taking our horses through the stone marked path that Icelanders have travelled through for 1200 years, we ride past the lava tube cave of Búðarhellir, where we get the chance to rest up and explore.
Afterward, the journey takes us to Búðir and past its famous black church, before entering the longest beach of Iceland and one of the most popular riding beaches on the planet called Löngufjörur.
After some time of riding, we take one last look at the pulsating beauty of the North Atlantic before riding home beside the blossoming mountain roots of Breiðavík.
There is no riding experience necessary to join us on this tour. However, we do require a general level of fitness and confidence around horses, because we have to mount and dismount the horses several times during this trip.

Get to know our horses
We place great importance on our horses having a good temperament, and that they are diverse when it comes to their looks, abilities and character. After all, our guest's experiences vary, and while some have never been on a horse before, others are advanced riders. We try our best to find a horse that suits the skill level of each and every rider individually. So, come now and get to know our horses in person while riding on one of the prettiest tracks in the country.
Disinfection instructions from the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority
Importing horses to Iceland is strictly forbidden. Due to the isolation of the country and the import ban, the Icelandic horse has been lucky enough to avoid most of the diseases horses in other countries can be inflicted with. Importation of used tackle, riding clothes or anything else which may be used around horses is also strictly forbidden unless it has been disinfected in accordance with law. See further on the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority’s website.
We care deeply about our horses and the Icelandic horse breed. Please help us maintain the health of the Icelandic horse and respect rules regarding the disinfection of tackle and riding clothes.
