Black Sand Beach Horseback Riding Tour

This Black Beach Horseback Riding Tour is an easy-going one-hour ride ideally suited for beginners and people who don’t go horse riding often, but we welcome riders of all abilities. Our horses are friendly and sure-footed, perfect for enjoying the wild Icelandic terrain. In the summer, there is a chance to spot puffins flying above us, and in winter the ever-changing weather highlights the landscape’s rugged beauty.

The tours are mostly at walking speed, but for those who are capable there is the chance to try some tölt, the special gait of the Icelandic horse.

Please note we have a weight limit of 100 kg / 220 lbs, and riders must be aged 10+. Please dress according to the weather – gloves and good sneakers or hiking boots are recommended.

We ask you to be at the stable, dressed and ready to ride, 15 minutes before your departure time.
