Horseback riding in Iceland

Going horseback riding is a very good day-activity. No matter if you have tried it before or not, you can find a trip that suits you. For young children it is possible to try horseback riding by sitting at the horse and have someone to lead by reins. For others a trip from one hour up to a whole day trip can be found. There are various places where you can go horseback-riding, indeed you can do it all around Iceland. Many farmers have horse-rentals and there are also many companies offering short and long trip.
If you are not familiar with horses, take a short trip first. The muscles can soon become soar. The best thing to do after a horse-trip is to go to the next pool and relax in the hot-tub. It makes the day after much more enjoyable.
