Relax & Ride

July. 7th-13th, 2019

This tour is ideal for those looking for the ultimate adventure – those who want to get away from it all. Disconnect and enjoy pure Icelandic nature and the highlands with a loose herd, riding through breathtaking scenery that’s only accessible via horseback. After packing a lunch each morning, we’ll head out on our trek and not return until dinner time. At the end of each day, we’ll leave our horses and return to the guesthouse by bus. The next morning, we’ll wake up, drive to where we left off the day before and continue onward. We’ll return to Hestaland Guesthouse by horseback the last evening of the tour. You’ll be challenged, and your adrenaline will be pumping. But you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.
