  Icelandic Horses near Gullfoss
by bpwillet

I don't know how you will miss them. They are stunning animals and very gentle and hearty. You can arrange to take horse-back riding tours for a few hours to a few days. It is definitely worth it. They are smaller than normal horses but not quite pony size. The saddles are without any horns and they have a few distinct gaits to them that make them prized animals. There are ranches and farms in most parts of Iceland, so you are bound to drive by, or come across a horse trekking tour somewhere along your way.
