Overview
More
We at Hraunhestar are offering short riding tours in Iceland in the beautiful and peaceful nature in Hafnarfjorður. The surrounding landscape is filled with mountains, trees and lava that flowed thousands of years ago, Grahelluhraun. The riding tour trails are many and varied. We like to travel in smaller groups and offer personalized service on solid and lovely horses.
