What people are saying about Hafnarfjörður

Wir machten sehr gute Erfahrungen mit dieser Tour. Die Pferde werden sehr gut behandelt, sind in sehr guter Verfassung und auch die Guides waren sehr freundlich und bemüht. Mein Freund saß noch nie auf einem Pferd und konnte aber ohne Probleme mit den Anweisungen der Guides reiten - heißt also auch für unerfahrene Menschen absolut empfehlenswert! Die Guides haben sich Mühe geben, dass richtige Pferd je nach Reiterfahrung auszusuchen und haben verständlich erklärt, wie man das Pferd behandelt und reitet (vor allem auch für unerfahrene Reiter). Die Gruppe wurde nach kurzer Kennenlern-Tour in die schnellere und langsamere Gruppe getrennt und beim schnelleren reiten wurde auch zum Wohl des Tieres eine kurze Pause eingelegt. Tolle Tour, hat uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Kann ich nur empfehlen!
