About Hraunhestar

Hraunhestar is a family-run company that focuses on the well being of our horses and memorable experience of our guests. We are very passionate and take great pride in offering only well trained, nice gaited and happy horses. Our team is small but very experienced in both guiding and the Icelandic horse. We operate all year and offer scheduled day tours as well as private tours, riding lessons and courses.

Small groups

Great experience

Our tours

Ride through peaceful nature, spectacular mountain scenes, enriched lava fields and all year around the green forest on good, calm and trusty Icelandic horses.

Hraunhestar offer horse riding day tours in the surrounding area of Hafnarfjörður. Hafnarfjörður is located around 15 minutes drive from Reykjavík and is within the Reykjavík capital area. All tours include riding gear, safety gear and wind/rain-proof outerwear. We kindly ask you to let us know what your experience is when you book as we choose the horses, especially for your riding capabilities.

Hraunhestar offer pick-up from the capital area free of charge. Pick-ups start 60 minutes before each tour so please be ready on time. We always recommend that you check the weather forecast before your tour so you can dress accordingly. It is always better to dress a bit too much than too little. We prefer to have small groups so we can be flexible and provide personal service and guidance during each tour.

Riding courses and lessons

Hraunhestar offer riding courses for riders of all ages.

The riding courses at Hraunhestar have become immensely popular. Three different courses are available, for children to adults, in both basic and advanced levels. Private lessons for individuals as groups can be booked privately. We want to make sure that each student gets the guidance they need and therefore there are limited spaces for 4-6 person on each course.

We have great reviews

Wonderful riding tour

We were two persons and had a private tour at Hraunhestar Riding Tours. We were picked up at our hotel in Reykjavik and after the tour dropped off again at our hotel. The tour was amazing. We had beautiful weather and the horses and guides were just lovely. One of the best riding tours we ever had in Iceland!

Highly recommended!

We were booked on a morning tour, due to poor weather they contacted the hotel and offered a private afternoon tour for us, was impressed! The tour itself did not disappoint, riding through snow-covered lava fields was a great experience.  The horses were well cared for, and the tour guide very friendly making the overall experience very good. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Best experience, great service!

We chose Hraunhestar just because it was slightly cheaper than the other options, and we ended up getting a better experience than I think we would have got elsewhere. One of the lovely girls came to pick us up from our hotel in Reykjavik. We paid for a group ride, but it was just myself, my boyfriend and the instructor, which made it so much more personal. The horses are very well behaved and easy to ride (neither of us is experienced riders). Afterwards, we spent some time in the stables with the horses and had hot choc and biscuits. When we were ready to leave they drove us back to our hotel, no strict timetables! 100% recommend!

Our team

We are a small team, but we are experienced and passionate about our horses and giving our customers the greatest experience with the Icelandic horse.
