Tour description

This is your private and personal tour. Your guide will pick you up in Isafjordur and take you to our stables in Engidalur. There you will be given the proper safety gear and instructions on how to ride the Icelandic horse in our indoor arena. When our guide feels you are ready it´s off to the beautiful Engidalur valley on horseback. Our guide has a camera on you during the whole ride so you can relive it again when you get home. Pictures, video footage and transportation are all included in the price.

Beginners prepare for a very informative time since this tour is designed as a lesson also. The first half of the tour will be where you will learn all the basics of Icelandic horsemanship (inside our arena). Then we will head out for a wonderful Valley Ride. In the valley ride you will be introduced to the beauty of Engidalur. We will go at the pace you are comfortable with and take all precautions possible to make sure that you feel secure. The tour guide will have a Gopro camera mounted on his/her helmet so your tour will be documented for your pleasure.Advanced riders will get tips they need to enjoy the special traits and gaits of the Icelandic horse. We pick more advanced horses for more experienced riders and go at a faster pace. Since we go at a faster pace we will also cover more ground. The tour guide will have a gopro camera mounted on his/her helmet so your tour will be documented for your pleasure. Keep in mind that riders that have experience in a different breed than ours may still have things to learn about riding Icelandic horses. No two breeds are exactly the same and no two horses are exactly the same.Mixed groups if your group has both beginners and advanced riders you can still enjoy the experience together. The tour guide will of course stay with the beginners and give them all the help and support they need, but we let the advanced riders have more advanced horses and give them more freedom to leave the group. Advanced riders can ride at a faster pace in the opposite direction from where the beginner group is heading and return to the group.
