Diving in Silfra and Horseback riding - a perfect day

Between the 1st of April and the 30th of September we offer the Dive Silfra & Horseback Riding Combo Tour in which we go diving in Silfra and go horseback riding on Icelandic horses afterwards.

This is a great tour for divers who like horses and horseback riding fans who are scuba divers! Horse enthusiasts will already know that the Icelandic horses are an extremely special and protected breed.

On this tour you will first visit the most popular dive site in Iceland: the magical fissure Silfra, located in Þingvellir National Park. You can read more about the Silfra trip here: Silfra Diving Day Tour

After the Silfra dives we will warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and cookies before we take you to the Laxnes Horse Farm, where you will spend the rest of the day on a pleasurable ride through the beautiful valley of Mosfellsdalur.

At Laxnes you will be provided with riding equipment before you are handed one of their friendly sure-footed Icelandic horses suitable for both beginners and experienced riders.

This tour is surely an enjoyable experience to remember.

In order to join this tour you must have dry suit certification OR 10 logged dry suit dives within the last two years of tour date and be able to provide written proof from a diving instructor of these dry suit dives.
