Horse Riding Vik – Easy Ride on the Black Sand Beach

If you are looking for a special experience while in Iceland, then you should definitely join this horseback riding tour from Vík, giving you the chance to ride an Icelandic horse on the famous black sand beach!

The tour is suitable for both beginners as well as more experienced riders. Meet with your guide at the stables in Vík and prepare for a unique adventure that includes crossing a little stream on your way to the famous black sand beach, the highlight of your tour. You will have the chance to see the Reynisdrangar basalt columns and make a photo stop at the beach. Your guide can take a nice photo of you on the horse. Ride along the entire beach to mountain Reynisfjall where there is a wide variety of birdlife.

In the summer (end of May to September), you will have the chance to see puffins flying all around and over your heads. From the beach, you will ride back to the stables after what we hope was a great experience with the wonderful Icelandic horses and unique landscape.
