Ride through lava fields & green hills

This tour offers spectacular views and a surprising variety of magnificent Icelandic nature. We ride towards the green hills surrounding the volcano Hengill. The horses then take us up on narrow trails into the valley Reykjadalur, passing the beautiful waterfall Djúpagilsfoss and many hot springs. In Reykjadalur we will have the opportunity to take a relaxing bath in a warm stream. On our down the valley we enjoy fascinating panoramas over the surroundings, the village Hveragerði and the farmland all the way down to the coastline, where we might see the Westman Islands, weather permitting. We continue on excellent riding trails surrounding Hveragerði and through the colorful geothermal Gufudalur valley with hot springs, an area which expanded dramatically during an earthquake in 2008. The path then takes us through a green forest and along the slopes of Reykjafjall mountain back to the farm, where coffee and home-baked cake are waiting for us. Bring your swimsuit and towel.

NOTE: This tour is for everyone but participants should be in good physical condition and must be able to mount a horse with little assistance. Ca. 15 minutes easy hike uphill and downhill included. Due to weather conditions and regular maintenance of the trail the hiking time might be up to total ca. 50 minutes easy hike (back and forth). If the weather does not allow us to go into the mountains, the tour will be changed. There are no changing rooms in the valley
