Iceland without its horses is unimaginable. They are calm, friendly and delightful to ride. Riding an Icelandic horse is something you have to experience at least once in a lifetime. Join this 2 hour horseback riding Iceland tour and spend a wonderful time in the countryside.
This 2 hour horseback riding tour is set in a beautiful surrounding of Grenivík, the eastern shores of Eyjafjörður Bay, where the Kaldbakur mountain rises over the town, lending a distinct feature of the area. Grenivík is 40 minutes drive away from Akureyri (41 km). The stable is family owned which will let you feel Icelandic real hospitality. One of the greatest characteristics of the Icelandic horse is that it has five different gaits. In addition to the normal walk, trot, and canter/gallop there is also tölt and skeið (flying pace).
