Our tour starts with a ride in the idyllic landscape of Laxnes, located just out of Reykjavik. The riding tour is suitable for all ages and experience levels, from beginner to expert. Tell everyone that you’ve ridden an Icelandic horse, a breed virtually the same as when the Vikings brought it to Iceland over 1000 years ago.

After the ride, we’ll relax and have a bite to eat before we join our Golden Circle Afternoon tour, which leaves Reykjavķk at 13:00, and head to Žingvellir National Park, renowned for its geological features. The Icelandic parliament, Alžingi, was founded there in 930 A.D., making it the oldest still-functioning parliament in the world.

We visit the impressive glacial waterfall Gullfoss and the geothermal area around Geysir and Strokkur with its spouting geysers. The tour takes us through fertile agricultural areas before journeying back to Reykjavķk over the mountain heath Hellisheiši.
