We will pick you up with a mini bus from your hotel and take you to the beautiful town of hot springs in Hveragerði. As the drive is roughly 35 min. you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and sights on the way to the stables.
Once at Eldhestar horse farm, they will teach you all the tricks to riding an Icelandic horse (if needed) and lend you safety gear and warm clothing for the journey ahead.
The 1.5-2 hr. riding tour is set in the scenic surroundings of the farm, which means the best riding routes available each time. Depending on weather, you may ride across the river Varmá and through a long hardened lava field area, ending on good riding paths in the meadows south of the stables with the beautiful nature of the area all around you.
Once back at the horse farm you will be given light lunch before being driven back to Reykjavik, just in time for your whale watching tour, starting at 13:00.
Whale watching departure point is by our ticket office in the Old Harbour of Reykjavík. We will take you out in to Faxaflói bay or nearby area, wherever the whales and their food is abundant and where the probabilities to see them each time are good.
In summer we are likely to encounter Minke whales, harbour porpoises and dolphins and in winter we can expect to see larger species such as Humpback whales and even Orcas!
On board you will find all facilities you may expect, such as indoor saloons equipped with toilets and an onboard café where we sell light refreshments. If the weather is chilly you may even grab one of our warm overalls for lend on board, a rain jacket or a blanket.
This combo tour is weather dependent - we recommend wearing good sturdy shoes and warm clothing.
This is a full day tour with light lunch included.
