Highland Adventures - Iceland

Experience Level

Highland Adventure Deluxe

5 star rating   20 August 2017

All the horses are fit and forward going. As you change horses twice a day you will have a dozen over the week . With a herd of 40 it was easy to change mounts if one has a less than easy gait and they were keen to ensure a good match. Comfortable dressage type saddles . The horses ability to tolt fast on very awkward stony or boggy ground is amazing. A team of eight riders in full flow following the fast running herd is a unique experience.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Holiday self catering cottages with communal hot tub. This tour had excellent food and plentiful alchohol cooked by a catering team brought in especially for us. They travelled to the mountain bunkhouse with us. The bunkhouse had four bunk rooms which couples or singles had sole use with shared bathrooms. Very convivial atmosphere, excellent hospitality and intriguing insights into Icelandic culture.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

The fly bus does actually still go direct to hotels and it is well worth paying the small additional price. The bus cannot get to the hotels in the Main Street but can get you within 5 minutes which is a big improvement from the 20 minute walk from the central depot.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

A unique opportunity to enjoy Icelandic riding with a reasonably small group and first class facilities.
