Horseback Riding Vacation and Farm Holiday in Magical Iceland

Imagine going on a horseback riding vacation at the top of the word! While I’ve not yet been to Iceland, it actually has ” continental divide techtonic plates” separating North America from Europe. It also offers blue glaciers, boiling hot water geysers and a moon-like landscape used by NASA for astronaut training.

I’ve been told that the horseback riding in Iceland is wonderful. And who could resist the adorable Icelandic horses and ponies?

    SO wish I could go on this trip! Unfortunately I will already be traveling during those dates, but Iceland is very high on my list of places I want to see, and a horseback riding vacation there would be fantastic. Hopefully they’ll do another trip like this in the future…..would love it if it would work out in my schedule.

    If this wasn’t during TBEX, I would seriously consider it. I love Iceland and I love, love, love Icelandic horses. They’re like big furry four-legged teddy bears – super sweet, friendly and inquisitive.
