Feel well on horseback in the mountains of Kebnekaise (4 days)

Ofelaš Islandshästar & Guideservice +46 (0)980 500 13

A longer tour where you get to experience the mountains from horseback. On this tour, you stay overnight in a house and are served local specialties. After a day on horseback and a three-course dinner, sauna is offered. We ride day tours both in the mountains and in the valley with a spectacular view of the Kebnekaise mountains. We ride both on trails, wider tracks and on unpaved terrain, so we can vary the pace of the riding.

On the first day, we pick you up in Kiruna and drive to our farm in Puoltsa, beautifully situated on the banks of the Kalix River. We start with lunch and then go for a ride in the afternoon. We stop during the tour for a coffee break. The day ends with dinner, nice company and a night in double rooms in one of the houses on the farm.

On the second day, we ride a whole day tour up in the mountains and enjoy fantastic views. During the tour we stop for lunch, which is cooked over an open fire. A three-course dinner awaits when we get back to the farm and wood-fired sauna is offered, which is appreciated after a day out. The following day we also ride a whole day tour, have dinner together and there is an opportunity to use the sauna on this day as well. During these days we ride both in Nikkaluokta and in Puoltsa. We get to Nikkaluokta by car. The tour ends on the fourth day with breakfast and transfer back to Kiruna.

On some dates, we also have this tour in Ratekjokk (south of the Kalix River), for example 13th-16th of July. We get there by car and boat. In Ratekjokk there is electricity, a wood-fired sauna and an outdoor toilet. Accommodation in multi-bed rooms.

We have some scheduled departures during the summer, but if these dates do not suit you, you can book other dates by agreement. If you need extra accommodation before or after the trip, let us know when booking. The order of the activities can be different from the program. The Icelandic horse is indeed a strong horse, but not so big, therefore the maximum weight for riders is 90 kg. The age limit is 12 years.
