Take an equestrian vacation across Iceland´s western highlands, from the beautiful Vatnsdalur Valley in the north to the shrine of the nation Þingvellir in the south. The smooth tölt of quality Icelandic horses takes horseback riders through this mystical and inspiring landscape, following in the footsteps of the Icelandic people who rode these paths to visit their King back in 1907. Today, the horseback trails offer a rarely found peaceful wilderness.

Discover the legendary Arnarvatnheiði Heath with its countless lakes. The guides will regale guests with local myths and legends. During the trip, horseback riders will spot the majestic glaciers of Langjökull and Eiríksjökull before visiting the geothermal area of Húsafell; often called the pearl between the lava and the glaciers with its natural forest and great outdoor pool. The end of the trail takes riders to the Pingvellir National park, a UNESCO World Heritage site that horseback riders visit on horseback, just as the Icelanders have done for centuries. In addition, the horseback riders will be traveling with a herd of 60-90 free running horses. This is an extremely special experience, unmatched anywhere else in the world. 

Accommodation is in shared rooms with shared bathrooms at local farms and mountain cabins. This trail is ideal for those who want to visit the many spectacular natural and historical sites.

Was this trip accurately described to you beforehand?
YES
Please give more details to explain your response:
Only one comment - the group size was 23 guests which was possibly a little large. There was a lot of waiting around which, for half the trip when the weather was poor, meant that we were very cold - fewer people may have meant less waiting
Was there anything you should have known and were not told? NO
Please give more details to explain your response:
What could we do to improve this ride?
Unicorn Trails were faultless. I would have enjoyed hearing more from the tour leader about the local flora and fauna and the local culture. Having said that, Haukur was great when asked directly
How would you rate the difficulty of this ride out of 10 where 1 is very easy and 10 is very advanced?
8
Please explain why you scored it as you did:
The terrain was challenging and the days were long, so you may struggle if you were not riding fit.
Would you recommend Unicorn Trails to your friends?

Other Country Information

Iceland is known as the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ and is a large island in the North Atlantic Ocean, close to the Arctic Circle. It has close ties with Scandinavia and is part of Europe. Historically, Iceland was settled by Vikings and later came under Danish rule. Known for having the world's first parliament during Norse times, Iceland passed an act centuries ago banning horse imports, leading to today's pure breed. In 1944, Iceland gained full independence. Iceland also boasts a rich horse culture, with nearly every Icelander being a rider or adept at horseback riding.

Iceland is a true gem in the world of travel. With its incredible landscapes that seem to come straight out of a storybook, this destination is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The opportunity to witness volcanoes, stunning beaches, geothermal springs, rocky formations, and mineral-packed pools sparkling with color is truly unique. Plus, its wild landscapes are home to some of the world's most awe-inspiring natural phenomena, such as the midnight sun in June where you can experience almost 24 hours of daylight. And there's no better way to immerse yourself in this natural wonderland than by taking a horseback ride through the glacial river valleys and ancient routes. With its vast uninhabited land, Iceland is an adventure waiting to happen for those who are willing to explore off the beaten path. Only approximately 15% of Iceland is populated and most people choose to live around the coast, leaving the rest of the country's rugged beauty to be discovered by travellers.

Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital, is picturesque with modern architecture and commerce mixed with traditional colourful wooden houses. The nearby geothermal hot springs have been harnessed to provide a cheap natural heating system. This leaves the air pristine and pollution free. Your photographs will benefit from the fabulous clear sharp light. The sea also plays a vital role in Icelandic life, supporting the fishing industry. The coast and fjords are rich in bird species, especially sea fowl.
