The highlight of our trip!
Dec 2019
We had a week in Reykjavik and decided to give Icelandic Riding tours a try after reading their reviews; so glad that we did!

We had a private tour with our amazing guide, Linnea. She went out of her way to make sure that we were comfortable and enjoyed every minute of our trip. Shortly after we began our tour, I was taken aback by the breathtaking scenery; the mountains were absolutely gorgeous from every point along our path- it was clear that the company had spent a lot of time finding the perfect route for beauty and fun. The sunset on the mountains was something I'll never forget!

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Reykjavik. If you're searching for the perfect horseback riding tour, this is the one!

One of the best tour experiences
Dec 2019
The difficulty with reviews is that its hard to convert emotions or experiences into words without diluting the genuine feeling. Rather than write up a mini novel that no one reads here is the TLDR:

*Super small operator, not some 'RIDING FARM', its super intimate. Frankly the price of this should be double or triple what it is. In the states this would probably be 500USD+
*Being a small operation they care. Whom ever you communicate with is who you'll probably ride with.
*They'll work with you. On our booking we had some strange scheduling & weather issues, they understood and they gave a sh*t
*Horses are insanely well trained.
*The trails are amazing/legit
*The owners/operators are awesome, it was explained to us they do this as their hobby.

If you're reading this and still on the fence or go else where, lol.

Best day of our lives.
Dec 2019 • Friends
My friend and I decided on Icelandic Riding as we wanted a more personal tour and that is precisely what we got, from the small stables to the little hut we had hot chocolate and biscuits in after the ride, all elements were intimate and magical. Our guide was knowledgeable and so very kind and took loads of photos for us, we can't thank her enough. Our horses were clearly very loved and well behaved. Email communication with Jonina was also excellent and we left very happy.

A fast fun ride on well behaved horses
Sep 2019
We are experienced riders, and I reached out to the US Icelandic community to find a tour that would be fun and more than a good walk. Our guide, Linnea, took the two of us out on the "long" ride. My guess is we covered at least 8 miles and maybe even 10 miles.....and we had long stretches of tolt, fast tolt, canter and pace. Of the total distance, I suspect we were going faster that a walk for about 50% of the journey. We stopped to allow the horses to rest as was appropriate. They make sure the experienced riders have a terrific ride. We have nothing but high praise for our time with them.

Awesome afternoon!

What a fun afternoon. Our guide was fun and we got a history lesson about farming in Iceland as a bonus! All of the horses were so happy and well cared for...my husband fell in love with his horse which was adorable.
Would highly recommend this outing!

Fun and exciting tour in the beautiful Icelandic landscape. As a beginner I got a lot of help from the guide. I even got to test ’tölt’. I really recommend Icelandic Riding for everyone.

Wonderful experience!
Jul 2019
My brother and I rode with Jonina on two of her fabulous Icelandic ponies. She was knowledgeable about the horses and the area, and it was clear the horses were well liked after. The scenery was breathtaking! We got to learn how to tolt, something I have always dreamed of doing. Highlight of the trip!
