We will start this journey by saying hi to the beautiful horses, petting them, getting to know them a bit and saddling up. After this introduction to the horses, we will start by riding in the paddock for a few minutes before we head out to the beautiful countryside.

We ride part of an ancient riding track along the banks of Þjórsá river. This traditional bridle path lies all the way  up to Murneyri, where people used to gather from all parts of south Iceland and riding competitions were held in the old days. While riding, we will both witness the stunning view of the southern countryside and the magnificent volcano, Mt. Hekla.
