This tour starts with a 1.5-2 hours riding tour in the spirit of the Vikings. Where we go depends on wind, weather and the participants’ riding experience. After a light lunch the tour continues towards the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier, one of Iceland’s biggest glaciers.

Here we start with the walk on the ice and discover a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses, hiding the deep blue colour of the glacier ice. A great combination of traditional horse riding and fascination nature.
