Riding Holiday - Landmannalaugar

8 Days Through Iceland on Horseback

The Hekla volcano is often called the “Queen of Iceland”. Each day of this trip reminds visitors of the destructive power within the many volcanos on the island. In contrast to the moon-like landscape of the volcanos, the journey also takes in the colourful mountains of Landmannalaugar and a natural hot spring where holidaymakers can soothe tired muscles.

The beautiful region of Landmannhellir marks the start of the central highlands, before the Rhyolite Mountains with their eye-catching colours framed by impressive black lava fields. The trip back to civilisation leads down through lush green valleys. The friendly and calm Iceland horses used for this journey make it ideal for ambitious riders wishing to explore some of the more remote areas of the country.

Dates: late June – early September. Please get in touch for details on starting days within this time frame.
