Iceland and its horses are our passion and we go to Iceland to ride with our outfitters and guides as often as possible. A few times a season we invite clients to come with us. We often have riders tell us how much they appreciate being told what to expect in this faraway land, so we explore as far and wide as we can while we are there, checking out hotels and restaurants (when we get off the horses!), and finding the best hot springs. It's a very tough job.
Here are some selected riding tours with spot descriptions and links to fuller texts.

These are 2018 tours that we've gotten updated so far. A few more to come. If you're in a hurry call us and ask any questions -888 686-6784

The Thórsmörk tour has always been popular with Horses North! It takes riders through one of the loveliest spots in a beautiful country and it’s particularly fascinating to ride into this area on horseback. This tour is unusual in that it is a short tour that brings along a herd of loose horses as remounts.

Then there are soft grassy fields, hard lava trails, river crossings, by towering rock formations and immense waterfalls. It’s a tough ride, but worth every step!

Few things are more fun for a group of friends than riding together in Iceland. It's quite easy to custom make a ride for groups, large or small, and it's not necessarily more expensive than the using a scheduled tour. We work with outfitters and farmers who take you on a tour that you and your pals will long remember!
