Icelandic Horses - Multi Day Experience

Icelandic Horses are one of the word’s most unique breeds, with larger than life personalities, and a special gate called the tölt, which makes long rides smooth on horse and rider. Purebred for over 1000 years on an island with no natural predators, Icelandics are incredibly well suited for trail riding, trekking, and equine therapy due to their curios and confident nature.

Rather that individual rides, we offer multi-day experiences where you are matched with a horses whose unique personality matches yours, and you start by building trust and confidence together. Over 3-5 days, you will catch your horse in the pasture, explore our large agricultural community in horseback over multiple rides, and for longer experiences, venture offsite for a ride in another inspiring natural setting.

Exclusively available as part of a 3 or 5 night Icelandic Horse Experience Package.

 

Lava Encounters - CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE

Note: Due to current volcanic activity, this Adventure is not available. Alternatives  available.

Lava is unpredictable on the Big Island, but we can help you find it and keep you safe.
