Combine a wonderful horseback riding experience surrounded by beautiful nature with a relaxing and invigorating visit to the breathtaking oceanside geothermal spa Sky Lagoon.

 

We start the day with the horse-riding adventure. You will experience the Icelandic horse surrounded by amazing nature right outside Reykjavík’s city center. Our friendly horses and specially trained guides will take you on a ride on excellent riding paths where you can experience the unique Icelandic horse while enjoying beautiful scenery full of lava fields and green hillsides.
When we arrive back at the stables enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate and feel free to ask our staff any questions about the Icelandic horse. This riding tour is ideal both for beginners and more experienced riders.
 
After we say goodbye to our lovely horses we make our way to the Sky Lagoon, an all-new geothermal spa inspired by Icelandic nature, heritage, and history.  It is located only minutes away from the city centre at the oceanside and offers dramatic yet stunning views across the North Atlantic Ocean.
Feel yourself relax and unwind as you take in the dazzling sunsets and moody skies and, if you're lucky, the dancing Northern Lights will put on a stunning show. Then, take your relaxation deeper with the Ritual, a unique seven-step experience that guides you through the history of Icelandic bathing culture.
Over the centuries, we've developed a way to combine the healing powers of warm water, cold water, warm steam, dry heat and fresh air. We use our traditions to integrate these natural elements to promote our wellbeing, inside and out. Those traditions are integral to the Icelandic way of life and are at the core of the Sky Lagoon journey.

The Icelandic Veterinary Authority recommends the broad-spectrum disinfectant Virkon S for disinfection. Used riding gloves, whips, saddles, bridles, chaps and other used leather gear may not be brought into the country.
