These horses are so...

These horses are so friendly and attentive guides! Fantastic scenery that you won’t see anywhere else in the world.
A different way to experience the black sand beach.

Lovely walk on the beach, with some Icelandic gait experience. Perhaps more suited to beginners but the view remains impressive. Both guides were helpful, professional and friendly.

My sister and I had a great experience! While there are many horse riding activities in Iceland we were really excited to participate in this one on the Black Sand Beach. The guides were fantastic at providing an overview of riding (we hadn't ridden in years) and took some time to get to know us. We loved the experience and its on of our best memories from Iceland!
Beautiful black sand beach ride

Amazing staff and views. Long enough ride for a nice experience but short enough to start off our day
Lovely experience!

No one but me in my family wanted to do this…but after the ride, they were all big smiles and loving on their Icelandic steeds. Definitely good for beginners and a fun, friendly (furry) activity in Vik. Highly recommend!
Unique Experience

The horse ride was what I expected; it was a follow the leader type of ride. Easy for beginners and intermediate riders. Getting on and off the horse was another thing. I would recommend using a step for those who have a harder time hoisting themselves up. Overall, it was a unique experience.
Fun Ride

Hillary was amazing instructor! The tour was well organized. We had lots of fun riding on the black sand beach. Recommend for any beginners and advanced riders.
Fun experience - better than expected and we learned a lot from the guides.

Great ocean and cliff views from the black sand beach. We could see Puffins flying around the cliff's. The first half was a slow ride but on the way back we got the horses trotting.

Enjoyable experience riding horses with Vik Horse Riding Adventure. Definitely recommend if you would like a short one hour tour with polite and experienced tour guides.
