      Our family of 4 really enjoyed this beautiful, scenic ride along a river that leads up to Hraunfoss. Hoski was so hospitable. He even showed us his sheep and adorable lambs. We just had trouble finding it and there is no sign leading to "Ashestar."...More

      This place is a must while in Iceland! The instructors are more than great, explaining very carefully everything you need to know when going horse riding as a beginner! Suitable for kids and all ages! Beautiful landscapes too!! Loved it!!!
