To ride an Icelandic horse in the Icelandic nature is something you have to experience at least once in a lifetime. It is the most authentic Icelandic travel experience. Íshestar is proud to offer you the opportunity to travel around Iceland on horseback and experience the breathtaking nature of Iceland. The Icelandic horse is one of the first inhabitants of this volcanic island and has grown unique abilities to ride softly across every terrain, cross glacial rivers and ride the black and white beaches of Iceland. Since 1982 Íshestar has given people the opportunity to experience the Icelandic horse on long and short trips.  That is our passion. Enjoy the freedom of riding with Íshestar.

Testimonials from Happy riders

My first time on a Viking Horse was a memorable one! Not knowing what to expect, I rated myself as intermediate ( I'm an owner of 2 Tennessee Walkers and an avid trail rider.) but went with the most experienced group after watching the weeding out process. Glad I did! I'm 6 feet tall so they gave me a big horse with ALOT of forward motion...this guy really stepped out. 2 days later and my muscles are still sore! Highly recommend this to any horse lover. FYI passing the guide up will cost you a beer back at the ranch!!
