Sólhestar is a horse rental company that offers a wide variety of riding tours. They are located just outside Reykjavik, but it will take you about 30 minutes by car. It’s perfectly located as you’ll get away from the city hassle and can truly enjoy the wonderful experience of riding through the stunning surroundings of Ölfus in the southern part of Iceland.
The riding tours are varied in length and are suitable for all experience levels. Most tours are day tours, from one hour to a whole day (7-8 hours), however if you have some riding experience, we recommend trying the longer tours that are up to 4 days long. In these tours you’ll get an amazing opportunity to connect with the nature. They offer all kind of themed riding tours that are well worth checking out. In the 7-hour long Hot Spring tour you’ll get the opportunity to explore the geothermal region of Reykjadalur Valley and The Beach Tour allows you to ride the horse on the soft and sandy beaches of South Iceland.
They usually keep the groups quite small so they can provide a personal service. They arrange the pick-up and you’ll even get some delicious home-made soup during or after the tour. Their experience and excellent knowledge of the horses and the area clearly evident when you look at the costumer reviews on Trip Advisor. Sólhestar will make your journey in Iceland even more special and memorable.For more information and for bookings, please see their website: solhestar.is
Went on the beach ride and had the time of my life. Wonderful horses. Walk, Trot, Tolt, Canter and Flying Pace. Opportunity to do it all. Afterwards, everyone was invited to the house for homemade soup. It doesn’t get any friendlier than that. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
