Get ready for a wonderful day of horseback riding and soaking in a geothermal swimming pool, hot tubs and steam baths. The ultimate Icelandic experience with a lunch included. You’ll spend 2.5 – 3 hours on horseback and another 2-3 hours in the pool and lunch. Estimated arrival time back in Reykjavik is just after 17:00 if you choose a pick up option. This tour is operated by a farm just outside Reykjavik dedicated to ecotourism and the horses only go one tour a day so they’re never overworked.
Your guide will choose the perfect horse for you based on your experience. When you ride together from the farm you’ll pass some beautiful landscapes, lava fields and meadows. The Icelandic breed is 5-gaited and during your tour there will be an opportunity to try a gait called tolt and is unique to the Icelandic breed. It is very smooth and feels amazing, your guide will give you tips on how to tolt.
Once you get back to the farm a light lunch will be waiting for you before it’s time for a well deserved dip into the lush hot pools to rest your muscles and mind. The pool is just a couple of minutes from the farm and you’ll of course be driven there. Entrance fee is included in your tour.
When in Iceland do like the Icelanders. The local outdoor swimming pools is where it’s at, both in the summer and winter. You have the regulars who religiously attend the hot tubs first thing in the morning, you got Tinder dates, friends catching up, families and everyone else. Dive in and let those muscles soften up like butter, enjoy the steam bath or go for a swim.
Remember your bathing suit and towel. If you don’t have it with you you can rent it at the pool. For the horseback riding we recommend you wearing gloves as it’s more comfortable holding the lead. Comfortable trousers or leggings and a thin hat to wear under the helmet. Good shoes or hiking boots. Backpacks cannot be taken on horseback so please bring a waist bag for anything you’d like to bring. Please note there is a weight limit for participants of 120kg.
