Book now for year 2012!
Most of our half-day tours and day tours as well as the short 1 – 1,5 hours tours we offer all year round. Everyone, individuals and groups, can experience
the variety of the landscape, the history, the culture and the wonderful Icelandic horse and the very special gait – TÖLT – one of the 5 different gates the Icelandic horse is so well known for.
Our longer tours from 1 to 5 days provide further insight into the history and landscape of the country and show how the horse has played a vital role in Icelandic history and culture. We always ride in the wonderful nature of Iceland; over lavafields, grassy banks of small qreeks and big rivers, we ride around a mountain and over some rivers, and we stop and see historical places and guests are told about old folk stories and myth as we cross different places.
Departure every day at 10 o´clock.
On these tours, people can combine horse trekking with other activities at Leirubakki.
