Winter week on horseback (7 days)
Spend an exciting winter week with us and our Icelandic horses, and make a lot of other activities. It is exiting to ride in the snow, in the forest on smaller tracks in the dark and during day light. Except of riding tours we give you riding classes, visit the famous ICEHOTEL, drive snow mobile and go reindeer sledging during this week. You learn about the Sami culture and have local guides with you these days, very familiar with the area and culture. You will feel peace and quiet, and be much out in the nature. Hopefully you will see northern lights, reindeer, moose and other animals these days. What you will experience when you visit us is both genuine and exiting.
Here you see an example of the week-long program:
After transfer to our farm the first day you start with a riding class in the afternoon to get familiar with the horses and the tölt. We eat a 3-course dinner together after. Outside the window you will hopefully see moose and northern lights. The second day you go snowmobiling, two persons on each snowmobile. You learn how to drive snowmobile this day and have outdoor lunch prepared over open fire. In the evening you have then a riding tour in the dark looking for northern lights and spend the evening in the goahti (Sami hut) round the fire eating dinner. The next day you have a reindeer sledging tour including lunch where two persons are sharing a sledge. That´s the old way of transportation for Sami people in this area and you will learn about sami culture and life. In the afternoon you visit the famous ICEHOTEL, have dinner at the restaurant and in the evening you come back to the farm.
The fourth day you go riding and in the afternoon we visit the town Kiruna and the Sami museum. The next day you ride in the forest, probably seeing moose and in the afternoon you will have a sauna, from where you have a beautiful view over the river and mountains. The sixth day we ride in the forest and in the afternoon we ride on the oval track. The last day we bring you back to Kiruna.
During this week you stay overnight in a house on our small horse farm with double rooms, shared kitchen/living room and bathroom. Our farm is beautiful located close the Kalix river west of Kiruna in a small village. We serve local specialities, like game and fish. Most of the activities we do from our farm, but to some of them we go by car and the activities are probably done in another order than in this program and we always have to respect the winter weather.
