For a full-day experience with a difference, ride a Viking horse in the morning then spend the afternoon touring Gulfoss, Geysir and other Icelandic natural phenomena. It's a nature-lover's dream, and the best way to make the most of your visit to Reykjavik.
The Icelandic horse breed has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought them to Iceland in the 9th century. These sure-footed, docile and good-natured animals are ideal for beginners and experienced riders alike. The one-hour riding tour takes you through the outskirts of the capital.In the afternoon, your day's activities continue with the Gulfoss and Geysir Express half-day tour, to see Iceland's best known historical sites and natural phenomena. The tour begins with a visit to Thingvellir, a geologically unique place where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. The Icelandic parliament Alpingi was established here in 930, and in 2004 Thingvellir was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.You will also see the majestic and beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur.
