Ashestar offer 1 – 1 ½ hour long riding tours in beautiful nature along the river Hvita. For guests that are not up for a riding tour but want to get to know the Icelandic horse we offer 20 minutes of riding with someone from our staff leading the horse. Suitable for both inexperienced as well as experienced riders and so a visit to Ashestar is an excellent entertainment for everyone.

On our annual visit to Husafell the family stopped for a riding tour with Ashestar. We loved it so much that we came back for a second time! Professional people, well trained riding horses and wonderful scenery - what more could you ask for?!

Our family of 4 really enjoyed this beautiful, scenic ride along a river that leads up to Hraunfoss. Hoski was so hospitable. He even showed us his sheep and adorable lambs. We just had trouble finding it and there is no sign leading to "Ashestar."...More

This place is a must while in Iceland! The instructors are more than great, explaining very carefully everything you need to know when going horse riding as a beginner! Suitable for kids and all ages! Beautiful landscapes too!! Loved it!!!

My wife and 10 year old daughter were lucky enough to ride with Anna at Ashestar in July 2017. They both loved it. Unlike the other riding stable we rode with in the North, Anna was willing and eager to ride with just the two...More
