Golden Circle Southern Comfort
East and South Iceland
There is no better way to visit the hot springs area of Geysir and the Golden Waterfall of Gullfoss than by riding to them through the lovely countryside of South Iceland.

There is no better way to visit the hot springs area of Geysir and the Golden Waterfall – Gullfoss – than by riding through the lovely countryside of South Iceland. On our way to the farm we witness the great scenery at Thingvellir National Park.
This popular tour is ideal for families and those who do not have the required riding experience for our highland tours. Still riding days can be long so you should be in good physical shape and have a basic knowledge of horsemanship.
On the first riding day you get acquainted with the Icelandic horses and their special gaits on a relaxed ride through the countryside surrounding Fossnes Farm. We then leave the farm and ride towards magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall and the hot springs area of Geysir. After a relaxed riding day in that area we experience riding along the edge of vilification. We cross the highland moor of Hrunaheiði and enjoy good riding tracks on our way back to the farm.


**A shorter 5-day version "Geysir Gulfoss" is available.
