Golden Highlights of the South
West Iceland

This tour through nature takes us to the most popular attractions in the South of Iceland. We leave from Vellir and follow paths nestled between the lava and hills to the Valley of Horses. Through soft grass, we proceed to the beautiful and shimmering Lake Thingvallavatn. We visit the ancient site of the Thingvellir gorge, where Icelanders first gathered in 930 to hold their parliament.

We ride across the heather and continue to the hot springs at Geysir. We proceed to the fierce, giant waterfall Gullfoss with Langjökull glacier in the background. We cross lava fields to Thjórsá, Iceland's longest river and visit the Waterfall of the Thieves. We ride through an Icelandic forest to the still active volcano Hekla where we complete our tour riding alongside the volcano.
