What people are saying about Southern Region, Iceland

It was a great experience and the guides were amazing. Nothing to be worried about. Their horses are sweet and cute. And the hot drink after the cold ride was perfect. You need to have a good thermal layers to keep you warm most especially good set of socks and gloves. They do provide snow suit and helmet.

I had an amazing time and didn’t feel pressured or pushed to my limits in the slightest. The staff was very kind and accommodating and recommend it to anyone!

Most amazing experience, the highlight of my Iceland trip. Nothing like watching the sunrise on horseback.

Great experience, the girls that take you for ride are lovely.

Just beautiful, lovely team, brilliant Xmas day ride
