For an Icelandic experience with a difference, ride a Viking horse in the morning or early afternoon and then spend the rest of the day relaxing at the Blue Lagoon on this exciting day trip from Reykjavik.


  • Hotel pickup included
  • Get up-close to native wildlife
  • Day trip (destination A to B)
The Icelandic horse breed has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought them to Iceland in the 9th century. These sure-footed, docile and good-natured animals are ideal for beginners and experienced riders alike. The one-hour riding tour takes you through the outskirts of the capital.

After your riding adventure, you'll be transported to the famous Blue Lagoon for some well-earned relaxation. Once there you have many recreational options to choose from, such as walking in the Blue Lagoon's spectacular surroundings, bathing in the milky blue-green water, relaxing in a geothermal steam bath or releasing the stress from your shoulders under a Blue Lagoon waterfall.

Choose from a standard entrance-only pass to the Blue Lagoon or indulge in a bathing experience with use of towel, drink of your choice, skin care trial pack and algae mask on the comfort package. An afternoon to savour!
Please note the Blue Lagoon will be closed from 5 Jan - 21 Jan, 2016

    The staff are very friendly and helpful they had everything I needed for a fun ride including gloves, helmet, and boots if you choose. They chose the perfect horse for me not too fast and I think we rode for a couple of hours along the Icelandic country side. I loved the experience and the only feedback I would give is that it would be nice for them to have a platform to help in mounting/dismounting the horse. My legs are strong but I am not experienced enough or agile enough to hop up on the horse. I used the fence to dismount in the end so I didn't embarrass myself. I would also bring a fanny pack for my phone/camera because they don't recommend that you bring a purse on the ride because of all of the bouncing. There are hooks to hang your personal items on including your purse but no lockers.

    I booked my horse ride with Laxness Horse Farm through Viator and I'm so glad that I did. The staff were wonderful and helpful. They matched us to horses based on our riding experience. The first half of the ride the whole group rode together at a slow pace. We were then given the opportunity to join a fast group or slow group on the ride back, I went from being one of 20 to being one of 6 and I had an amazing ride. I love riding horses and this was one of my favorite rides to date. They take you for a lengthy ride with astounding views. I definitely want to go back.

    We then went to the Blue Lagoon. I went in the afternoon and I think if I had gone in the morning or evening it may have been a bit less packed. Either way it was very soothing and relaxing. I wanted to try to book an in water massage, but they were booked out for the entire month before hand. If you think you want one, make sure to book well in advance. The bar had delicious drinks, but they are on the pricey end. The facilities are all very clean and well maintained. I definitely want to go again and I will book in advance.
