Experience the robust and tölting Icelandic horse - no matter your previous riding experience. Tryggvi Islandshestgård offers guided tours on Icelandic horses with different levels of experience, and the trails and speeds are adjusted to each level. They have offers suited for both adults and children, and for riders with zero riding experience as well as the advanced rider.

In the summer season, you can often book longer tours, and through the rest of the year, you can book 1-3 hour long tours. In addition to all this, Tryggvi Islandshestgård also provides riding lessons with an educated instructor, riding school, children riding and other horse-related activities all year round. The tour guides all have long experience with Icelandic horses and gaited riding, and they know each horse very well - that way they will be able to find a horse suited to each rider's needs. Almost everyone, from the age of 3 to 80, can join a guided tour - although the rider's weight must not exceed 95 kilos. All tours must be booked in advance through the website.

Tryggvi Islandshestgård organises guided tours every weekend and school holiday, and through the summer holiday, they organise several tours almost every day.

Does it sound tempting to join a guided tour in nature with the wonderful Icelandic horses?
