If you enjoy riding or are curious about the Icelandic horses, please go check them out at Ishestar Horse Riding.

The horses are gentle, and the people at Ishestar take care in pairing you with a horse that has a temperament that the feel will suit your riding skill level including those that sate riding for the first time.

Actual riding time is between 1 1/2 and 2 hours depending upon how many are in your group and the pace of the group. Our ride was just under the 2 hour mark, but it was a little windy that day.

Make sure you dress warm if you come in the winter months. They do have coveralls and rain gear but I wished I had one more layer on under the rain gear yesterday and had a hat on under my riding helmet. I'm glad I had my gloves yesterday.

I had a lot of fun and I hope you will too. Thank you again to the folks at Ishestar. Takk Ishestar.is!!

My teenage daughter and I went horse back riding. We are novices. The weather was brutal but we still had a great time! Cold weather gear was available. Bring gloves and a hat. Attentive staff. We left a coat at the stables and staff was kind enough to send it back later in the day with a driver. That was more than expected!

I had signed up for the Viking express tour and had a fantastic time. My guide was very engaging and friendly and my mare was very solid. She knew her job and was very good at it. Even with the freezing rain, I couldn't have asked for a better time!
