Akureyri Horseback Riding

Get to Know the Famous Icelandic Horse

During the 1 hour Akureyri Horseback Riding tour we go to Skjaldarvík Guesthouse, located 10 minutes drive outside Akureyri, for a one hour riding tour in the beautiful surroundings with a view over the sea and fjord. We take it easy so this tour is perfect for beginners but we also provide horses for those with more experience and stamina. You will get to know the Icelandic horse as a magnificent riding horse and off course to ride “tölt” the specific gate which this horse is so famous for. After the riding tour you are welcome to stay at Skjaldarvík. You can use the hot tub, which has a great view over the fjord and have complimentary coffee, tea and cake. In summertime the restaurant offers dinner and light refreshments.
