In this grand tour, we offer you to combine two of our most popular tours: The Glacier horseback riding tour and the Black Beach horseback riding tour.  This combo horseback riding tour will give you a great chance to get to know the unique character of the Icelandic horse. At the same time as you are riding through a beautifully diverse landscape. 


We start by riding towards the Eyjafjallajökull glacier and volcano that erupted in 2010. On the way towards the glacier, we ride through hills and mountains. If the weather conditions are good we might have a beautiful view over the South coast and out to the Vestmannaeyjar Islands.  Heading back we make a few stops to enjoy the beautiful surrounding. 

After we return to the stable we have lunch at Skálakot Manor restaurant before preparing for the Black sand beach. 

Private Black beach

Now it is time to head down to our private black sand beach. Riding across fields and small rivers. As we get closer to the Black sand beach we need to cross the Holtsós sea leak. Arriving at the black beach we get the change to enjoy a beautiful view. To South, we have a view over the Atlantic ocean and the Vestmannaeyjar Islands.

To east and west, we see an endless black sand beach. And finally to the north, we have a view of the farmland, hills, mountains and the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. During spring and summer, we might run into some Seals playing in the ocean by the coastline.

This is the perfect tour for people who love horses and like to get to know the Icelandic horse in its natural conditions. We offer a wide range of horses so we always try our best to find the best horse for everyone due to their needs and experience of horseback riding.
