The icelandic way of life

Horseback riding Iceland is a small family business, run by Susan & Víðir Þór Herbertsson. At the farm Gröf in Breidavík, we provide warm and personal service in a comfortable, beautiful renovated sheep barn, The Holy Ram Lodge.

We offer pre-prepared, four & six days, tours during the summer, with experienced english speaking guides. Our aim is to offer unforgettable riding tours on good horses in a beautiful landscape – and a bit of luxury during the stay.

In the Autumn and Spring, we offer our Stay & Beachride tour, a 2 nights stay in our Lodge with a beautiful ride on our own beach.

In the winter we do not offer Horseback riding tours, but you can stay with us for a lovely Icelandic winter break with family and/or friends.

Why ride with us?


Dear Víðir, dear Susan,
you just happen to finish the Northern lights tour. And Robin and I often think of our tour in the beginning of august. For me it is as it were yesterday. I won’t ever forget the splendid riding tour with you, the others of our group and – of course – the horses.
Robin and I would like to thank you so much and we hope to have the oportunity to come back to you one day!
All the best wishes

The Horses

“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of Grace, Beauty, Spirit and Fire”
