Ásbyrgi Riding


One of the things you cannot leave Iceland without doing is riding the Icelandic horse in its natural environment. There is no other horse that is as characteristic as the Icelandic horse and they are as comfortable as a horse can be. Riding into the Ásbyrgi canyon is something that is suitable for beginners and those who are experienced riders. The departure is from Gljúfrastofa visitor centre at 11.00 & 13.30 from June to September. Duration of the tour is 1,5-2 hours.

“"When you drive in a car or coach, you cover the ground quickly but you miss so much. When you take the natural way, riding a comfortable Icelandic horse, biking or hiking, you see and hear much more—especially when you’re in a place like the unique Ásbyrgi canyon—one of the natural wonders of the world.".”
