My sister and I took this tour in February; everything was covered in snow and so beautiful! The guides were well equipped to help us deal with the weather by provided any necessary gear and outerwear - no worries there. The horses are friendly and easy for a beginner. We passed a road (convenient to get to the farm, but not scenic), but soon were in a snow-covered lava field. We were far from the road and the pictures the guide took were great. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

My boyfriend had never been on a horse before, but the guide was so nice and took the time to make him feel comfortable. She regularly checked on him and tried to make him feel at ease. The horses themselves are incredibly calm and gentle. The ride went through beautiful lava fields and we got some great pictures. I would definitely recommend, whether you’re an experienced rider or totally new to it.

The guides here do a good job of adjusting to the skill levels of their guests. We split into a fast and a slow group to keep everyone comfortable. Our horses were well trained and it was a really distinctive landscape to ride through. Wear boots, we ride through some shallow water and it will splash on your legs.
