Hestasport Escapes - Iceland

Mountain Challenge

5 star rating   30 June 2022

Dorthe Hartvig (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Desirable with a little more options for saddles. There were only two to choose from for two riders. Seemed somewhat worn and hard. Friendly staff and kind guides.
Good strong horses.
All in all, some really exciting and challenging riding days which require good riding skills and a lot of courage.

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

Perhaps more information of how challenging the ride, especially day 2, would be. Can surprise someone with a fear of heights that you ride steeply down very small paths.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Some beautiful rides in fantastic nature, which you can only experience on horseback, as it is impassable in other ways. Strong horses who are very confident on their feet and surprises with their endurance.
Lovely wooden cabin with everything you need and not least the beautiful hot tub right outside the door, which does something good for the body after a long day of riding.
