Iceland’s faithful friend

Horse-riding at Laxnes Farm

For beginners or experts, old or young, Icelandic horses with their alert and willing nature are a real pleasure to ride in their natural surroundings. So step out of city life and into the saddle for a few hours! – It’s an experience you’ll never forget.

Laxnes Horse Farm is Iceland’s longest-established horse riding centre and the perfect place to enjoy a ride through the countryside. Póri and his wife, Heiða, have run the family stables for almost 40 years, welcoming riders of all abilities, whatever the season.

One thousand years of service
For more than a thousand years, the small but amazingly strong Icelandic horse has played a vital role in the country’s history. These faithful creatures have been credited with the very survival of the Icelandic people. Brought over from Norway by the very first settlers, they are world-famous for their range of gait.‘Tolt’, in particular, possesses a distinct fourbeat rhythm, that carries the rider perfectly still in his or her saddle without the tossing movement of the trot.

Come along for the ride
Laxnes Horse Farm is only a 10 minute drive from the city, and offers a pick-up and drop-off service from hotels in Reykjavik. On arrival at the farm, you get appropriately suited and booted (with snug snowsuits available in wintertime) and paired up with the right horse according to your previous experience. Three and seven-hour sessions are available, along with all-inclusive trips to the Blue Lagoon and Iceland’s Golden Circle.
