The remote Wilderness Center in Iceland is famous not only for its distant location but also for its authenticity. On this tour, experience Icelandic freedom to the fullest by hopping on a horse and having the ride of your life.

The tour will start from the Wilderness Center, where first, you’ll get to choose a suitable horse and prepare it for the ride. After you’re ready, you’ll make your way to the deserted Kleif farm. Here you’ll have the opportunity to feel and see the wilderness surrounding you. 

Those who enjoy a little challenge are welcome to test their strengths by going through the Jökulsá River in a traditional cableway. 

Please note that the tour time includes picking a horse, saddling it up, riding, and taking pictures.


Yes, the weight limit for this adventure is 100 kg / 220 lbs. This is of course with the welfare of the horses in mind.

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family.
