This combination of a Viking Horse Riding Tour
and AH11 Golden Circle Express
is for those who don't have much time, but want to make the most of their day.
The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 9th century. Enjoy a riding tour in the idyllic landscape of Laxnes, located just out of Reykjavik city. The riding tour is suitable for all ages and experience levels, from beginner to expert.
After the riding experience there will be about an hour to relax and have a bite to eat before we join our Golden Circle Express tour, which leaves Reykjavík at 13:00, and head to the National Park Þingvellir, with its remarkable geological features. The Icelandic Parliament - Alþingi - was founded on the site in 930 AD., making it the oldest still-functioning parliament in the world.
We visit the impressive glacial waterfall Gullfoss and the geothermal area around Geysir and Strokkur with its spouting geysers. The tour takes us through fertile agricultural areas before heading back to Reykjavík over the mountain heath Hellisheiði.
Please note: This tour is not recommended for children under the age of 6.
