Nothing is more relaxing than visiting a farm in the country outside the city. Laxnes Horse Farm is now offering you the chance to enjoy a day at the farm. You will be picked up at your hotel or guesthouse in the morning and taken to our farm in historical Mosfellsdalur valley. In the morning we will ride for two hours in the beautiful mountain area around the farm.
Afterwards, back at the farm, we will have time to relax and enjoy a light lunch and a cup of coffee or tea before going out for another adventurous ride. At the end of the day we drive you back to your accommodation in Reykjavík.
This trip is both for beginners and good riders.

Day At The Farm
We typically have homemade vegetable or bean/pea soup and bread, followed by coffee/tea and usually cakes or sweet bread.
Under normal circumstances: No. We have several routes to choose from but primarily use three main routes depending on season and weather. In the winter season heavy snow might drive us to use the same circle route, though in opposite directions.
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.
