This tour starts with an introductory ride into the lave fields surrounding the Mt. Helgafell volcano to the old Kaldársel sheep corral, or to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides acquainting yourself with the horses and the sourroundings. After lunch the riding centre head straight into the adventure of exploring the Reykjanes preservation area. Cross the Kaldá River, ride around Mt. Helgafell or into the beautiful Heiðmörk Nature Park with its strange lava formations and ancient Gjáarrétt sheep corral built from lava stones. View rough lava fields and look for different formations in the lava - maybe you will be able to spot a troll or two! Choice of route depends on the season and weather.
