Our guides lead you at a slow and steady pace on excellent riding paths surrounded by moss-covered lava fields and beautiful scenery allowing you to fully enjoy both the unique Icelandic horse and our incredible nature. Be sure to take a moment to enjoy Bláfjöll mountains on the horizon during the tour!

    CAN I WEAR MY OWN RIDING CLOTHES?

    Riding clothes. Riding gear (riding trousers, jackets, etc.) needs to be washed (40°C) or dry cleaned. Items which can not be washed or dry cleaned (riding boots, riding hats) need to be cleaned and disinfected at least five days prior to arriving in Iceland. 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.

    Please understand that these precautions are necessary because there are no contagious animal diseases in Iceland. Horses are not vaccinated and are therefore susceptible to infectious agents from abroad. Please help us to protect Iceland’s fragile nature!
