  • Iceland is full of amazing places to see and things to do, and riding an Icelandic horse should absolutely be on your list. My ride at Glacier Horses was absolutely amazing. My guide was very experienced and knowledgeable about both the horses and the area, and was able to adjust to my riding ability and give me great riding tips, and taught me how to tölt! Horses were super friendly and a smooth ride. Go check them out, and stop by their food truck Glacier Goodies nearby!
  • We had a great experience riding Icelandic horses with Sophia, our guide. She was very patient, and guided us through beautiful glacial plains, highly recommended!
