Thinking about touring Iceland's lava fields? Pony up and enjoy the sublime natural splendor properly — on a horse, of course! Experience the unbridled joy of cantering cross-country on a trusty steed, while an expert riding instructor guides you through volcanic landscapes and windswept valleys.
Learn about the local flora and fauna, as well as the Icelandic horses themselves, and their famous ambling gait known as the tolt. It's basically a dry-land doggy-paddle, and it's as cute as it sounds.
You don't hear of many people returning from Iceland complaining about the lack of scenic beauty on offer. With vast volcanic panoramas, dramatic coastlines, and vast glacial plains, being outside in Iceland can be a spellbinding experience.
You could take a bus tour and stare at the scenery through a window. But if you're more the full-experience type, grab the reins of an Icelandic horse, and trot smugly past the tour bus with your hair blowing freely in the Nordic breeze.
Each horse is assigned based on your experience level, and the pace and route of your tour will take this into account as well. So whether you're new to horseback riding or won rosettes at the Grand National, the tour will be a thrilling adventure you'll never forget.
