Rift Valley Ride
East and South Iceland

This tour takes you straight into the Rift Valley in Þingvellir National Park. While riding on secluded lava and birch lined trails in between the North American and Eurasian continental plates you will get a magnificent insight into the fascinating geology and history of Iceland!

Imagine tölting on our soft and gentle horses through lava fields, over highland plateaus and along lovely lake shores as you will discover the wonderful natural wonders of the South. Explore the ancient parliamentary place which is the birthplace of the Icelandic Nation. Your tour also includes visits to Geysir hot spring, the Golden Waterfall Gullfoss and to the geothermal Fontana SPA, where you can sweat in the steam of a natural hot spring and jump into Lake Laugarvatn to cool off!
