Hot Springs, Lava Fields & Trails
West Iceland

This lovely four day ride takes you to some of the most beautiful riding tracks in Borgarfjörður, in Western Iceland. This area boasts everything that Iceland has to offer: Glaciers, volcanoes, hot springs, historic Saga sites and geothermal pools.

During the ride you will visit the huge Lava Tunnel Viðgelmir and the cozy geothermal Krauma SPA. An optional tour is also offered directly from the hotel grounds into the blue ice of the huge Langjökull glacier. 

Our guide and their team takes some spare hand-horses along and you can try riding with a hand-horse – but there is no requirement and we might also have the spare horses running along.
