Eldhestar horseback riding

The volcanic hills and valleys and the volcano Hengill north of Eldhestar are an outdoor paradise for hikers and riders with marked trails in fascinating landscape. South of Eldhestar farm are large meadows with grazing horses, wetlands rich in bird life and the broad delta of the mighty glacial river Ölfusá. The grasslands surrounding the river delta and the black beach of the nearby North Atlantic are ideal for exploring on horseback.

The Icelandic horse has been a useful servant over the years.

The Eldhestar farm is situated in Iceland‘s south-western countryside close to the town Hveragerði, one of Iceland’s most picturesque village nestled in a green valley between volcanic mountains with steaming hot springs.

"Awesome"

Having carefully researched and read the reviews of this trip, we booked and were so glad we did. The tour was well structured with plenty of time at each attraction (45 mins to 1hr at each). There were also refreshment and comfort breaks along the way. The coaches were very comfortable with WiFi and a USB charger point at each seat. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and definitely enhanced the experience.

"An amazing experience!"

From pick up from our hotel to being dropped back at our hotel around 8 hours later, we had the most fabulous Iceland experience. Our tour guide was excellent, funny and engaging throughout...not overbearing but gave us all we needed. You get an interactive tablet (so bring headphones) that had a map and information as you drove along- excellent way of getting information as you could choose from a wide variety of languages. The map was GPS linked so as you drove the tablet automatically started to tell you information relevant to your position on the tour.
