This tour offers spectacular views and a stunning variety of Icelandic nature at it's best. We begin by riding along the slopes of Reykjafjall and follow up on the riding trails surrounding the small village Hveragerði.
The path then takes us through a green forest to a colourful geothermal valley with hot springs. An area which expanded during an earthquake in 2008. On our way towards the green hills surrounding the volcano Hengill we have good opportunity to try the “tölt”, the special gait of the Icelandic horse. The horses then take us on a leisurely pace following narrow trails up into the valley Reykjadalur.
We pass the beautiful waterfall Djúpagilsfoss and some hot springs before we reach Reykjadalur valley. Here you will have the opportunity to take a relaxing bath in a warm stream. During the ride down the valley we enjoy stunning views over the surroundings. The village Hveragerði, picturesque farmland and all the way down to the coastline. we may even catch sight of the Westman Islands, weather permitting.
We continue once again along the mountain slopes back to the farm. Coffee and home-baked cake are waiting for us to come back.
