About
*Escape the crowds - private tour* Experience the Icelandic horse tradition on a small farm, located just 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavik. Despite being so close to the city, you will feel like you are deep in the countryside when you arrive at the farm. There just a small number of horses here and tours are always operated just for you and your private group, so that they have an intimate, personal and authentic feel. We will take you on a horse riding tour to Thormodsdale,  where you can admire the scenery while spending time with our friendly horses. This tour is an excellent tour for those with some good riding experience, how want to take on a little bit longer and more challenging ride. Due to the length of the ride there will be plenty of time to try the different gaits and really get to know the Icelandic horse and explore the environment that has shaped him into what he is to day.  Riding time is 2,5-3 hours

Due to flight delays, we missed our original planned hike and had hoped to reschedule, which was totally okay as we knew it might not be possible. However, they told us that they were fully booked and could not accommodate any changes (which would have been fine) even though it was very easy to check online and see there was plenty of availability and that they were holding out in hopes of selling tickets instead.

Don't mind that they couldn't accommodate, but the dishonesty with the process and stringing us along until the last minute instead of simply saying no was very disappointing. Being full would have been fine, missing our first flight was no ones fault but the airlines being delayed, but no one respects a liar.

We are very saddened by this review. We did all we could to try to reschedule the tour. We contacted other guests trying to make changes that would result in a spot for everyone. We also contacted former staff members to see if the could with such a short notice take a tour with these guests. Unfortunately we were not successful and the time frame was short so there was not a lot we could do, but we tried and we let the guest know from the beginning that due to the numbers of bookings we might not be able to arrange a new tour, but we would try and keep them posted. Im not sure if the online calendar was showing openings, there was for sure no openings the weekend in question, both guides and guests can verify that. Im sad to be called a liar, but I think this is due to some misunderstanding and I hope that it won't happen again. At least I will try to find away to make sure our online calendar is more up to date if I possibly can. We take a great pride in our tiny little horse rental, our guests and their opinion matters a lot to us and I hope this review will be the only one star we will ever receive. Looking forward to meeting new travellers and horse lovers! Yours sincerely, Jónína Sif

It was perfect. We experienced weather (light snow, a little rain and beautiful rainbows) and natural beauty. The gear provided kept us bundled up. Great horses. Our guide was great. Cannot recommend highly enough.
