We are located on the farm Vellir. From this unique location between volcanoes, rivers and the ocean, our riding tours take us through scenic landscapes in the heart of Iceland‘s south-western countryside. The area around the volcano Hengill with its beautiful valleys, hot springs and the chance to bathe in natural warm water is ideal for horseback riding. This is also what inspired our name: Volcano Horses, or Eldhestar in Icelandic. It makes for a beautiful scenery for horseback riding.
Since the beginning of our activities in 1986, we have been striving to combine pleasure, comfort and adventure. It is important to us to respect and protect nature in all our endeavors. We emphasize personal service, safety and an environmentally friendly operation. Eldhestar is a participant of VAKINN, Iceland tourism’s official quality and safety label.
