On the way there, we discover the great summer landscapes of Lapland.

DAY 5

Breakfast at the guest house.

We now go for a 2-day adventure! After breakfast we head up to the stables where we prepare our horses for the tour. When the horses are saddled, the lunch packed and the riders ready, we can start our long ride in the wilderness. In the forest, around beautiful lakes… our gentle horses will bring us to various peaceful places.

After the ride we stop at Bredträsk, a wilderness camp on the shore of a beautiful lake. Our cook is waiting for us there with a hot sauna and a warm dinner. We spend the night in the little wooden cabin.

DAY 6

Another great day of riding in the Taiga! We leave Bredträsk after breakfast and already take the direction of the farm. On our way, we open our eyes and hope to see reindeers or even an elk if we are lucky!

Once back at the stables we thank our horses and let them rest after this adventure. We certainly also need a rest ourselves, which we take at the guest house around a filling dinner.

Night at the guest house.
