Horse riding tours

Experience the scenic areas around Geilo from the horseback! Geilo Hestesenter offers tours from 1-3 hours throughout the summer,  with their Icelandic horses and the norwegian breed Døle-horse. These riding tours take place in varied terrain around Geilo, in places such as Bruslettstølen, Kikut and Slaattahølen. The skilled and experienced instructors make sure you feel confident and in control so that everyone can have a great experience. The tours start at Geilo Hestesenter, and if you are lucky, you may also meet the dog Knerten, and the cat Rufus who belong to the farm! 

Half-day or full-day tour?

Explore the mountains in a new way, from the horseback with panoramic view of the majestic Hallingskarvet. By riding you can go far into the mountain platou and reach places you never thought was possible. The half-, and full-day tour is arranged in the fall when the mountains is dressed in its beautiful autumn colours. But, its also possible to book on request outside the period. You will be given a horse to suit your level and ability, and we will get to know the horse and get comfortable with riding before we head to the mountain trail. - Let`s saddle up!
