Every year there are thousands of British school-children visiting
Iceland in the autumn- and spring breaks of their schools. These are children and teenagers at various ages, staying a few days in
Iceland, residing in hotels or guesthouses, visiting a number of the most popular tourist attractions. At this time of the year, many school groups visit Leirubakki, where they get to see the
Hekla exhibition, learning about the volcano and its history, as well as the effect the eruptions have had on the neighbourhood. The young guests have also been able to take a look at the activities outside, where the Icelandic horse has been the centre of attention. In Leirubakki there is a centre for horse breeding and training, and riding tours are also available upon request. Here below is a photograph of a few students who were enjoying the company of the Icelandic horse.
