What to expect

What better way to discover Iceland than by riding on the back of one of their finest steeds - a real Icelandic horse. You will take an hour-and-a-half-long tour around Eyjafjord on horseback, taking in beautiful sights and learning about the countryside which surrounds you. Don't worry though, whether you're a pro or a beginner, your perfect horse awaits you, and after if there's enough time you can even take a dip in the hot tub.

The afternoon consists of a 3-hour whale spotting tour, this time in the middle of the Eyjafjord, wich will see you soaking up the Icelandic nature from a different perspective. Expect gorgeous views, plenty of wildlife and an expert guide. Keep your eyes peeled for humpback and minke whales, as well as porpoises and dolphins. If you love animals and nature, then this is the tour for you.
