We can think of 500 fantastic reasons to visit Iceland, but Icelandic horses might be one of the best. On average, they stand about 54 inches tall and weigh 800 pounds. The horses are famed for their big personalities and wild glam metal hairdos. Get out of Reykjavik and you’ll spot them grazing at farms throughout the countryside. To go riding, sign up for a 2.5-hour volcanic landscape tour with Íslenski Hesturinn. The stables take guests out in groups year-round for 14,500 krona (about $138 USD), or you can book a private session tailored to your sightseeing interests.
