About the tour

Icelandic horses at their finest with top riders – what is more pleasing to the eye. We will be introduced to the qualities of this particular breed of horses and keep in mind that calling them ponies is a "four letter" word up here !!

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Iceland with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.

The tour will last about 35 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Iceland. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

Thank you Albert for another fun tour. I think you have a great way of sharing information, so matter-of-fact and no nonsense. It’s so refreshing! This time you also had a great deputy in the horse farm owner. I can only deduce people in Iceland are great! Thank you Albert and thank you VT.
