Horses and Glaciers


Horseback Riding and Glacier Hiking

Imagine yourself riding a beautiful and experienced Icelandic horse just like the Vikings before you, then going for a hike on the Solheimajökull glacier, all on the same day!

The journey begins with a 1,5-2 hour ride in true Viking spirit. Our destination depends on the wind, weather and the participant’s riding capabilities. After a traditional Icelandic meal (the menu varies according to season) our journey takes us to one of the largest glaciers in Europe, Mýrdalsjökull. Once there we equip ourselves with crampons and glacier safety gear and start exploring the fantastical landscape of ice sculptures, ice hills and deep crevasses that hide the secret intense blue colour of the ice. This trip is a brilliant combination of traditional riding and beautiful scenery.
