Steinsholt Riding Tours in to the nature.

Longer horse riding trips

In our longer trips, we take free horses with us, and our guests help us drive them. Therefore it is vital that people joining the trips are self-sufficient in laying the seat on the horse and getting on their back without help. For these kinds of trips we take maximum 12 riders because if the number is higher, everything takes longer time, e.g. getting started in the mornings and changing horses.

Hekla will always be in plain sight in addition to many other natural treasures, the day’s journeys are fittingly long and the riding trails decent.

Shorter ridingtours

Our shorter riding tours take from one hour to whole day. We travel in the Steinsholt area, on the edge of the highlands, which offers many interesting routes. On tours which take 1-2 hours we usually travel along the river Kálfá, a river that flows along the land of the Steinsholt farm. Kálfá is a rather small river, easy and even quite fun to cross and usually crossed once or twice on the tour. On longer tours (3 hours – 1 day) the routes are chosen according to weather and time of the year. Often we ride close to the river Þjórsá, the longest river in Iceland, or near Stóra-Láxá river – a beautiful clear river. Daytours take 4-5 hours, we have helmets and rain clothes if guests wish for.
