The Great Circle Day: After breakfast at your hotel in Reykjavik make your way to the BSI bus station in Reykjavik where the outfitter will meet you at 10AM to go by car on the classic Golden Circle tour. Drive to Thingvellir National Park where the fissure zone of the mid-Atlantic Ridge can be seen. This is also one of the most important historic places in Iceland. Next visit Gullfoss waterfall and the geyser and hot springs area around Geysir on your way to the farm for Dinner and overnight.
It was a wonderful ride in every way. Stefnir and Anita are the loveliest and hardest-working people I think I have ever met. They treat their beautiful horses with love and terrific care and attention. Their tack was in perfect condition. Stefnir answered endless questions about Iceland's history, culture and geography. Anita spent time with us each afternoon following our ride. She is a fabulous cook and baker. Their adorable children visited us too. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and warm. The weather was sunny every day! Despite the sun, it was quite cold when riding. I'm glad I followed your suggestions re: packing. I wore long underwear, winter riding gloves, layers of shirts - synthetic and wool - a puffy jacket and a rain/ wind shell each day on the trail. All in all, a perfect "10"!
