This tour is a shorter version of our popular Golden Circle Tour covering the Geysir Hot Spring area and the Golden Waterfall Gullfoss. Exchange the beaten tracks for fine bridle paths along deep canyons, travel across wide salmon rivers to the wonders of untouched nature. Ascend through a lovely birch forests with wild mountain flowers to a highland plateau and enjoy great views of mountains and glaciers!  Visit Thingvellir Nationalpark on your transfer day, the historical place where the first parliament was founded around the year 1000 and where the continental plates drift apart. You don´t need to be a very experienced rider for this tour, because our horses, especially chosen for this trip, take you safely and comfortably to your destination. Still riding days can be as long as up to 38 km in the saddle so you should be in good physical condition and have a basic knowledge of horsemanship.
