This combo is a must for nature and animal lovers. Enjoy the views and sights in the countryside of Akureyri whilst riding an Icelandic horse, before embarking on a whale watching tour!

What to expect?

  • Spend your morning horse riding in magnificent nature on an Icelandic horse, which is unlike any other! The 1.5-hour tour starts at the stables at 10:00 in the morning. However, we do recommend booking the free pickup service (30 minutes prior to tour departure) or arrive on your own at least 15 minutes before the tour starts. There is a good variety of horses to choose from, so whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider, we are sure to find a horse that fits your ability and needs. Helmets are a piece of standard safety equipment and everyone is required to wear one for the duration of the tour. If there's enough time after the riding tour, you may even get to enjoy a relaxing soak in the on-site hot tub!

  • Depending on whether you made arrangements with our free pickup or not, you will either be dropped off at the harbor or will need to make your own way there before the whale watching tour departs at 01:00 pm. The 3-hour whale watching tour takes you towards the middle of the Eyjafjord, close to where you went horse riding just minutes before, where we have been fortunate enough to watch whales on every tour since we started operating out of Akureyri. In the very unlikely event that you don't see a whale on the tour, we will offer you to come again for free.

What is included?

  • Pick up at your hotel before the horse riding tour
  • Excellent live commentary
  • Helmets and other necessary riding gear
  • Hot tub at the stables (if time allows)
  • Overalls to wear on board the boat
  • Free WiFi on board
