Riding on an Icelandic horse through Reykjadalur Valley

For many years I had the idea in my mind that one day I would like to go riding on an Icelandic horse in Iceland! And for today I booked a riding tour at eldhestar. My horse for the day was a mare called Spök and she was really lovely! The ride was about six hours and we rode through the Reykjadalur Valley. In this valley there are many hot springs and a lot of them are very active! We rode past some that have a temperature of about 100° C. After about three hours riding we stopped had lunch and took a bath in a hot spring! That was perfect! Riding an Icelandic horse and trying the tölt, a gait only the Icelandic horses can do, is really a thing one should do in Iceland 🙂
