For a change of scenery, meet us at the stables in Vik, the southernmost village of Iceland. Once there, we’ll prepare for the long-awaited horse riding adventure in Iceland! Your guide will match you with a horse that suits your character and experience. After a safety briefing, enjoy an easygoing ride along the exotic Víkurfjara Black Sand Beach.
Víkurfjara possesses a dramatic yet graceful beauty. A ride on the beach reveals black volcanic sands, lava formations, and arresting cliffs. Ignore the green vegetation on rocks and it’s easy to imagine yourself riding on the surface of a distant planet.
As you ride along the beach, hear the sound of the ocean waves crash into the shore. For more scenic treats, witness the famous Reynisdrangar Basalt Sea Stacks in the distance. According to the local lore, these volcanic formations are trolls caught out at sunrise and turned to stone.
The pace is relaxing for beginners, but more experienced riders will have the chance to try the famous ambling gait known as the tölt.
