Horses and Northern Lights by Boat

Ride the Icelandic horse through the amazing lava fields & then go hunting for the northern lights

Horseriding during daylight with Íshestar through the dramatic landscape of lava fields and then head back to the city where you join the Northern Lights by Boat tour with Special Tours!

The perfect winter combo!

On this tour you get to experience the special gait of the Icelandic horse, tölt through the different rock formations and the hillsides which might even be covered with beautiful winter snow. The riding itself takes 1,5-2 hours with stops.

The Icelandic horse breed can be traced back to the settlement of the country and has remained pure. The breed is so unique because it masters 5 different gaits.

After a beautiful day out in nature you go out on sea to explore the amazingness of the Northern Lights from sea.

 We escape the city lights when we head out from the Old Harbour in Reykjavík dressed up in warm overalls and ready to search for the colours in the sky.

The boat tour is also a perfect way to get a different view of the city.

Pick-up time for the horse riding is between 13:00-13:30. 
Pick-up time for the Northern Lights by Boat starts 1 hour before departure.

Duration: 6 hours.
