Horses and Blue Lagoon


This popular tour is an ideal combination where the Icelandic horse and the rejuvenating Blue Lagoon play the major role. Your ride follows smooth riding tracks through bushy hills and moss-covered lava fields. See the variation in the lava fields depending on their age and enjoy the different shapes of the lava. After a ride of 1 ½ - 2 hours we drive to the fabulous Blue Lagoon where you can choose to swim in the mineral rich water, enjoy a massage or just relax and enjoy the facilities. (Bathing fee is not included in the tour price.)

Various transfers available to the Blue Lagoon from the Riding Centre and from the Blue Lagoon to Reykjavík or Keflavík airport. Please contact us for further information.
