Highland Trails - Iceland

Snæfellsnes Beach and Mountain Ride

5 star rating   3 September 2022

Karena who has been on 6 In The Saddle rides. Amazing adventure | Riding was superb the horses were loved and part of the Icelandic family as were we. The guide made an extra effort to suit me to each horse and the riding was awesome. Would recommend to anyone and would certainly go back!

We rode in beaches and across lava fields some of the most beautiful countryside I’ve ever seen. Strong sturdy and sure footed speedy horses !

Love loved it!

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Be aware that 14 of us shared a toilet and shower - which was ok but required being very alert to when It was free! It was kept very clean and there was space to hang your towel.

Rooms are spotlessly clean yet could do with more storage space

Food is very well catered for and home made - very lovely and veggie options offered that were also excellent. You will not go hungry!

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

Just to comment on the person to shower / toilet ratio! And that taking wellies to ride in would be a good choice as you do need very waterproof boots. Luckily I bought brand new Dublin ones that were fab and had dry feet all week much to the envy of others!

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

None very happy thanks

Do you have any other feedback for us?
