What to Bring for Hot Springs, Lava Fields & Trails

Here are our recommendations on what to bring:
  • 2 pairs of good quality riding trousers. We do not recommend to ride in Jeans even if you are used to do so at home.
  • 2-3 pullovers  – ideally woolen but fleece is ok as well. It is best to have one or two thinner ones and one pullover that you can wear in layers (onion layer method).
  • Plenty of woolen socks and gloves. Please note that riding gloves must be new. 
  • Good high quality thermal underwear (we recommend none-itching Merino wool)
  • A good and windproof – ideally waterproof  jacket. We do provide you with heavy duty raingear (jackets and trousers) for days with heavy rain but you might want to bring your own lighter jacket for days with wind and drizzle.
  • A thin balaclava or buff to wear underneath the helmet
  • Mosquito net for the head. 
  • Bathing suits
We offer the possibility of renting a safety vest during the tour (please, let us know if you are interested).

Please make sure that you follow the rules set by the Icelandic Veterinary Authority!
