Íshestar has been a leading tour operator since 1982 and has always given absolute priority to quality service and safety. This summer we are celebrating our 35th anniversary.
It is safe to say that a lot has changed since we first started, but our most popular tours have stayed the same over the years and other new ones have joined the group. The Kjölur tour was the first tour that was operated by Íshestar and the Golden Circle tour was first operated a few years after. Now we offer over 20 different tours in different parts of Iceland for beginners to experienced riders.
One of our most popular highland tours is Volcano MT. Hekla Landmannalaugar tour. This tour combines the most amazing sites along with excellent riding paths and astonishing nature. The tour brings our riders to the geothermal wonderland Landmannalaugar, the colorful rhyolite mountains and Landmannahellir cave. One destination on this amazing tour is Gjáin a mystical canyon with lots of small waterfalls and famous setting for Game of Thrones.
Another popular highland tour is Northern Exposure. This tour was nominated by the Sunday times as one of the 10th best trails in the world! On this tour, you will see the largest waterfall in Iceland Dettifoss and Ásbyrgi the horseshoe canyon where Odin rode his large horse Sleipnir according to northern mythology. On the top of the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon is a great place for a photo stop with a breathtaking view of the canyon.
Exploring the Icelandic nature while riding is truly the best way to see our breathtaking country! It is a feeling you can´t describe and have to experience at least once in your lifetime!
