Spend a morning heading inland for the chance to canter through rugged, volcanic countryside on the back of an Icelandic horse on this combo adventure. In the afternoon, cruising through open water, scan the horizon for playful pods of dolphins and explosive blasts from the blowholes of mink whales..

Start your day by boarding a comfortable shuttle bound for a farm just outside of Reykjavik. When you arrive, get paired up with a docile Icelandic horse and mount up for a thrilling ride over rolling hills and open boulder-flecked grasslands. Gallup to lofty viewpoints that offer birds-eye views of the city below and snap photos of Iceland's rugged mountains before heading back to town.

In the afternoon, meet up with the captain of your whale-watching cruise in the Old Harbour, climb aboard as the crew makes final preparations to sail, and find a comfortable seat the warm cabin or on the breezy, open-air top deck. As make your way out to sea, listen as helpful staff give you pointers on where to look for whales, dolphins, and porpoises. During your trip, you might even see the majestic arch of a breaching humpback whale, or the acrobatic maneuvers of white-beaked dolphins.

Consider grabbing a drink from the onboard bar while you sail and enjoy sending pictures to your friends and family over the ship's lightning fast Wi-Fi before you head back to shore and catch a lift back to your hotel.

Wow! Am amazing experience. The whole day was run very well... all transfers etc worked easily. On the morning we had the joy of riding the wonderful Icelandic horse... and experiencing tolt! Begga and Sveinn run the most amazing place. The horses are well schooled, but not boring, and really well looked after. Begga gives a great introduction which helped everyone get the most from the morning. The riding was suitable for both riders and non riders. The route we took was beautiful and Begga was a mine of information and funny anecdotes. We were very fortunate to see lots of whales on the afternoon... minky and humpback! the guide was informative and the captain had an uncanny knack of honing in on the whales. We also saw lots of puffins! Honestly, a fabulous day, great value and especially good if you are on a limited time frame
