The Viking Horse & Golden Circle Express

Come and get to know our Viking horse breed while taking in a breathtaking view of the countryside on your horseback riding tour. The Viking horses loyal and gentle nature are suitable for all experience levels. Then join the Golden Circle Express tour to visit the country‘s most iconic landmarks and places of natural, historic and scenic qualities. The tour takes you from Reykjavik into south west Iceland through Þingvellir National Park, to Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area.


This combination of a Viking Horse Riding Tour and Golden Circle Express is suitable for those who want to use their time well and make the most of their day. Departure from Reykjavík will take you to Laxnes in Mosfellsdalur just outside of the city.

The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 9th century. Enjoy a riding tour in the idyllic landscape of Laxnes, suitable for all ages over 8 years old and experience levels, from beginner to expert.

After the riding experience there will be about an hour to relax and have a bite to eat before we join our Golden Circle Express tour, which leaves from Reykjavík and heads to the National Park Þingvellir, with its remarkable geological features. The Icelandic Parliament - Alþingi - was founded on the site in 930 AD., making it the oldest still-functioning parliament in the world.

We visit the impressive glacial waterfall Gullfoss and the geothermal area around Geysir and Strokkur with its spouting geysers. The tour takes us through fertile agricultural areas before heading back to Reykjavík over the mountain heath Hellisheiði.
