Kings Trail
Highland Tours Iceland

Explore spectacular nature and unique historical sites on horseback through Iceland's western highlands.

The Kings Trail links the beautiful Vatnsdalur Valley in the north to the shrine of the nation, Þingvellir in the south.
In 1907 the King of Denmark (who also ruled over Iceland at the time) came for a visit. Because of this huge event, some improvements were made on the ancient tracks to Þingvellir, to make it easier for the population to ride to the old parliament place and see their king.

Our historical riding paths lead us across the legendary Arnarvatnheiði Heath with its countless lakes and myths. During our ride, we will also encounter the majestic glaciers Langjökull and Eiríksjökull.
There is nothing more authentic then visiting the UNESCO park of Þingvellir than on a horseback like the Icelanders have done for centuries!  Þingvellir is not only designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical importance but also because of its very special geology and natural features.
