40 to 60 Minutes
The tour that we offer is about a 50 minutes ride suited for beginners or people that don’t often go horse back riding.
From the stables you will cross a little stream, often a favourite among guests. After that the ride continues along the black sand beach, a highlight of the tour.
The entrance is quite magical. On the beach there will be time to stop and take photos for the guests, on their own phones or cameras.
The ride takes you along the entire beach to Reynisfjall (mountain) where we have a variety of bird life. In the summer time puffins fly overheads, although they are though only in Iceland from the end of May til the beginning of September.
From the beach the ride continues through an old path and into the potato gardens, for a true experience of the village.
