We ride on excellent riding trails along the slopes of Mt. Reykjafjall and through a green forest. We then pass by hot springs in a geothermal area. This area is situated just above the village of Hveragerði and expanded dramatically during an earthquake in 2008. We continue along colorful hills above the village, which is know for its idyllic location between volcanic mountains and wide plains, to the stable area.
We stop for some refreshments and learn more about the Icelandic horse before riding back to our farm.
