Situated along RingRoad 1, only 30 minute drive from Reykjavík, lies our farm Vellir. From this unique location between volcanoes, rivers and the ocean, our riding tours take us through scenic landscapes in the heart of Iceland‘s south-western countryside. The area around the volcano Hengill with its beautiful valleys, hot springs and the chance to bathe in natural warm water is ideal for horseback riding. This is also what inspired our name:
Volcano Horses – Eldhestar in Icelandic.
You’ll experience an Iceland you might not have seen before – the Iceland of 100 or 1000 years ago. Endless meadows, rushing glacial streams, hidden valleys, dormant volcanoes and high mountains are waiting to be discovered. Our riding tours range from one or two hours to several days to suit riders of all ages and abilities.
