What people are saying about Hafnarfjörður

Absolutely perfect! Everyone on the farm was very nice and friendly. Wonderful handling of the animals! The ride is really only suitable for experienced (cross-country) riders, which luckily was the case with us. Galloped and tölted several times - great !!

A brilliant experience! A wonderful horse with a lovely guide in a beautiful place. Loads of tölting - great fun. And the support staff were very helpful with my queries before the trip, and really friendly when I arrived. Totally recommend this ride!

It was absolutely wonderful to get to experience Icelandic scenery with a group of very experienced horseriders. Canter and tölt were no issue and the whole ride was super pleasant and casual due to this. Absolutely fantastic.
