Horses and Glaciers - IMG03

Icelandic horse riding combined with a unique glacier walk

It was an action packed day. Riding the horses was fun and not difficult, then we had a nice lunch and rest before heading to see waterfalls and walking on the glacier. Walking on the glacier was the highlight of the trip, and my wife and I loved seeing the beautiful blue ice.

  • Tour Description

    Imagine experiencing two legends of Iceland in one tour: riding an even-tempered Icelandic horse like the Vikings did, and walking in the labyrinth of the Sólheimajökull glacier...all in the same day!

    This tour begins with a 1½ to 2-hour horseback riding tour in the spirit of the Vikings. Where we go depends on the wind, weather, and your riding experience. Newly baked bread and the soup of the day will give you some energy before we venture past the Eyjafjallajökull volcano to Iceland's 4th largest glacier, the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Here, on the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue, equipped with crampons and ice axes, you will set forth on a Glacier Walk to discover a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses sure to truly complete your day. On our way we visit the wonderful waterfalls Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. A great combination of traditional horse riding, glaciers, and fascinating natural surroundings
