From Reykjavik: Full-Day Horse Riding & Golden Circle Tour

1. From Reykjavik: Full-Day Horse Riding & Golden Circle Tour

This tour is a combination of the Viking Horse Riding Tour and Golden Circle Express Tour, and is perfect for visitors to Iceland who don’t have a lot of time to spare but want to make the most of a day. In the morning you’ll enjoy a ride on an Icelandic horse through the idyllic landscape of Laxnes, located just out of Reykjavik city. The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 9th century. The riding tour is suitable for all ages and experience levels, from beginner to expert. After your morning ride and a short break you’ll head out on the afternoon portion of the tour, to Þingvellir National Park. Admire its remarkable geological features and see Alþingi, the Icelandic Parliament. Iceland’s Parliament is the oldest still-functioning parliament in the world, and was founded on this site in 930 A.D. Visit the impressive Gullfoss glacial waterfall, the geothermal area around Geysir, and Strokkur with its spouting geysers. You’ll pass through fertile agricultural areas before heading back to Reykjavik over Hellisheiði mountain heath.

Hello, first a note. The beautiful Icelandic name means Golden Circle. That's why I accidentally booked twice. Nevertheless, there were some new impressions. The horses were super nice and well trained and, despite the occasional speed, also manageable for "non-riders". It was an impressive experience to ride through a wonderful landscape in the middle of a group. The ride was an absolute highlight of my trip

We thoroughly enjoyed the horse riding, the staff were so welcoming and we were well looked after. Despite never having ridden before the ride was very comfortable and with a range of different terrain including river crossings i couldn't have had more fun! Couldn't recommend it more and will be returning one day to see the ponies again.

10/09/2021 The driver and guide were very professional. The bus driver was amazing, he made an extra stop for us near the geyser, so we could take selfies with an icelandic horse I had a wonderful trip.

A great day! So worth the money. Cozy horse ride with a nice waterfall. Golden circle on magic and geyser. Nice staff and pick up on time. Really recommend this!

good and safe organized, very friendly, happy horses, nice ride in a beautiful surrounding.
