Our Classic tours take you on riding paths that have been used by Icelandic people for centuries. On these tours we ride with a herd of loose horses, so it is important that you feel safe to control your horse and keep your balance also in faster gaits. You get to try many different horses (We change horses usually twice a day). Group size ranges from 10 to 18 riders according to the different tours. We usually calculate to bring 2-3 horses for every rider.
Reasonable physical conditions are needed on all tours, especially on our longer highland tours where daily rides can be up to 7-8 hours. The minimum  ability required is that you master the basic aids and are able to control the horse at all paces and in the open country. Children from 10 years are welcome on our Classic tours, but need to be fit and proficient riders as well.

All of these tours differ in other details, so let´s  see which one is the perfect tour for you!
