This tour goes through meadows and lava fields. On our way, we pass several farms, which give us an idea of how agriculture has developed in the last decades. On the way, we have a good opportunity to experience the gait tölt on the many good tölt paths. At the end of the tour, you are invited for coffee and a home-baked treat.

Yes, the weight limit for this adventure is 110 kg / 242 lbs. This is of course with the welfare of the horses in mind.

Normally we do operate the tours if it’s raining. Excellent waterproof jackets and trousers are available, as well as gloves. The Icelandic horses are used to rain and wind.

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.

Here you should wait for your guide.

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. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our super jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.
