  • Ride through the arresting Icelandic countryside on a beautiful Icelandic horse
  • Behold the waterfalls, geysers, and mountains of the Golden Circle
  • Visit Þingvellir National Park, Iceland's greatest historical site and the oldest known Parliament in the world

Glide across the lush and lovely landscape of Iceland on the back of an Icelandic horse.

These swift and graceful creatures skim the earth when they gallop, and the countryside hurries by in a rush of green and brown.

Spend the afternoon on a sightseeing tour of Iceland’s very best known historical sites and one-of-a-kind natural phenomena.

See the UNESCO World Heritage Site where the world’s first parliament convened and witness the world-famous Geysir expel a column of water toward the heavens.

Itinerary

You will be picked up by bus from your Reykjavik hotel to kick off this Viking Horse Ride and Golden Circle Tour. You will be accompanied for the day by an English-speaking tour guide.

Drive to the outskirts of the capital and mount a beautiful Icelandic horse. Horse riding takes place at Laxnes horsefarm (at Íshestar if Laxnes is fully booked),

The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to the country in the 9th century. These strong, supple, and sure-footed horses move with the speed and effortlessness of the wind.

After an exhilarating one-hour ride, take a lunch break (payable direct) before embarking on the Golden Circle portion of the tour.

Set off by bus for the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park. It was here that the country’s first parliament was founded in 930 AD, making it the oldest known Parliament in the world. It is also a remarkable tectonic and volcanic environment where continental drift has engraved the landscape with cracks, faults, and fissures.

Drive to the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring, where a column of water thrusts upward to a height of 180 feet. Only a few feet away is the Stokkur Geyser, which hurls boiling water toward the sky every 5-10 minutes.

Continue to Gullfoss waterfall, where the wide Hvita River plunges furiously over a natural staircase of stones. When one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, giving the appearance of a raging river that simply vanishes into the earth.

On your way back to Reykjavik, make drive by the colorful Kerið crater and pass by the village of Hveragerði, where geothermal energy has been harnessed to create unique greenhouse cultivation.

Travel over a scenic mountain heath back to Reyjavik, where you will be returned to your hotel.
