The Viking North Iceland Horse Riding in Winter Experience
Why take this tour?
On this exceptional “off-season” trip, you‘ll enjoy the diversity of the Icelandic landscape without the haste of the summertime. Our reliable and strong horses will carry you directly into nature´s tranquility and won’t mind frozen ground or scrunching snow. We ride along farmers’ trails and head for the impressive waterfall “Reykjafoss”. During wintertime, it‘s frozen and full of icicles. You will never forget the unique experience of exploring your surroundings on horseback – just like the Vikings did. Please let us know if you have any previous riding experience. This helps us choose the right horses for you. You can do this on the check out page.
