Parade of Icelandic horses in Central Reykjavík
The days from 28th of March to 1st of May in Reykjavík are dedicated to the Icelandic horse. You can experience this true force of nature in the city's center, as well as in natural surroundings.
On this day, the annual horse parade travels through the city's center, from Hallgrímskirkja Church to the Parliment in Austurvöllur. The parade will start "tölt"-ing at 13.00 (or 1 p.m.) In Austurvöllur you will have the opportunity to meet the animals and the riders up close.
Titled "Family Festival - The Youth & The Horse," this event is for the youngest riders and their bond with the Icelandic horse. Two shows will be held, first one at 13.00 (1 p.m.) and the second at 16.00 (4 p.m.). Admission is free. The venue is Fákur in Víðidalur, Reykjavík.
The first of May is the "Day of The Icelandic Horse." Celebrated all over the world, owners are encouraged to open their stables for the public. You can be a part of the fun by sharing your experience on social media, using #horsesoficeland.
