Winter in Iceland means a countryside ablaze with colours and the Northern Lights dancing in the Arctic night sky. Enjoy visiting the best-known sights in Iceland, riding an Icelandic horse along fine bridle paths and viewing a dazzling display of Northern Lights after a great day in the saddle. Riding during wintertime is an Icelandic tradition and a wonderful experience.
Both these rides operate from Kalfholl Farm which also hosts our Southern Comfort rides in the summer months. Situated within view of Hekla volcano, the rides take you past glacial rivers and along paths where you can discover the special gait of the Icelandic horse - the tolt.
Ease aching muscles with a visit to the Secret Lagoon where you can relax in the mineral-rich waters, before looking skywards where, with luck, you can view the aurora borealis in all its glory.
For those who prefer a bit more comfort, then our Comfort Tour offers that little extra privacy requested by many guests. Non-riders are also welcome on this one which offers some hiking options.
Daylight hours are short in Iceland in winter, so whilst the rides will be exhilarating, there is plenty of relaxation time to gaze skywards and observe the wonders of the Northern Lights.
