Witness the natural wonders of Akureyri from the top of an Icelandic horse. Often described as small, sturdy and hardy, the Icelandic horse is also a docile creature, which makes it perfect for children, as well as adults. When you arrive at the stable, you’ll receive safety lessons from an experienced guide. Then, you’ll put on a helmet, saddle up on a well-trained horse and hit the trail for a leisurely one-hour trek. Sure-footed, the horse also has the ability to perform five gaits: the fet, which is a walk or step; the brokk or trot; the tolt, which is a faster type of walk; the skeid or the pace; and finally, there’s the stokk or gallop, which is a very fast gait. After your adventure, you’ll ride back to the stable, dismount and reboard your coach for the scenic trip back to the pier.
