Due to popular demand we are for the first time offering private tours as a daily departure option.
The private tour is a variation of our Laxnes Special tour and will have daily departures by summer 2022. You´ll be able to tailor your tour time to up to two hours and enjoy the farm surroundings at your own pace.
Please see the FAQ below for further information before booking this tour.
Details on Private Tour:
Operated: Daily Season: Summer
Departures: 10:30 and 14:30
Duration: Optional up to two hours
Price: 29.900kr pr. person
Minimum two passengers
The private tour has it´s own tour guide attached to it and is therefore considerably more expensive than our Laxnes Special option.
Booking a private tour requires the minimum number of passengers of two to reserve the slot in our online booking system and will only allow two passengers to be booked to reserve the spot. The maximum number of passengers can be four though ( five if the group has riding experience but you´ll need to contact the farm after making a booking and notify us of the additional passengers). The remaining passengers can then pay at the farm on the day of departure.
If you want to ride alone with a guide you´re welcome to but the minimum booking charge will apply.
Please note that our pickup service is currently not available for the private tours.
No, it’s optional but every now and then we have trouble finding our clients during pickup and a quick text message is often better than e-mailing as you’ll typically see it sooner. The driver has limited time to wait so it can make a difference.
Please note that we will only call you in rare cases during pickup when the driver is unable to send a text or email and knows you’re in the area. We do our very best to find our clients and the easiest way to solve booking errors is fast communication.
Yes, the Icelandic horse is technically a pony (we’ll never admit it though) and the maximum weight is 120kg (240lbs).
The age limit on our Laxnes special tour is 7 years, although exceptions can be made if the child has riding experience. Please email us before making a reservation if this is the case.
Icelandic horses are not vaccinated and are therefore susceptible to infectious agents from abroad. Visitors are asked to adopt strict biosecurity measures! Importing the following equipment is strictly prohibited:
- Used riding equipment, such as saddles, bridles, nosebands, pads, rugs, whips, etc.
- Used riding gloves
Cleaning and disinfection:
- Used riding clothes and boots should be washed in a washing machine or dry cleaned prior to entering the country
- Used riding clothes and boots that cannot be placed in a washing machine or dry cleaned should be washed and disinfected as follows:
- Rinse thoroughly with detergent
- Spray with 1% VirkonS® (10g per liter of water)
- Store for at least 5 days prior to bringing the clothes into contact with horses in Iceland
