two horses matching their riding experience and personality, as well as is equipped with an appropriate riding gear rain jackets

and pants, boots, safety helmets and gloves. The tour initiates by primarily riding alongside the Ingólfsfjall Mountain on

a rocky and rugged terrain until we reach Reykjadalur (“Smokey Valley”), which is a mud spring area. From there we 

continue riding through the mountain paths next to Kambar old road, which back in the days was used as a most frequented

route between Reykjavik and the are in the south. The path leads all the way up to the valley where power station on 

geothermal energy, utilization and sustainability nowadays takes place. After reaching this point, we continue riding 

through Kolvidarhóll, a place of a popular and an essential guesthouse for the travellers in the past. This is a final 

destination for the first day of the tour. The ride is estimated to be 28 km long, which is a total duration of

4 to 5 hours in the saddle. After the ride customers are being brought back to their accommodation, where they are able

to rest and power up for the upcoming riding day.

short break. After exploration, we continue our riding journey through lava field all the way until we come across 

The Rauðhólar, unique natural phenomena of red lava hills on the south-eastern outskirts of Reykjavík. After riding
