Day-by-day program

DAY 1

Arrival at Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station. We pick you up and drive you to your accommodation. You meet us during a nice dinner and we present the next 4 days to you. Night in the guest house.

DAY 2

Breakfast at the guest house. Time to get energy for the longest day of the year! Today, the sun will rise at 1:47 and set at 23:28. Let’s just say that we won’t see any night!
For this first day of activity you will discover the Nordic horses. We will introduce our Icelandic and North Swedish horses to you, tell you a bit more about their specificities and get to know your companions for the next days during a short ride in the nature.
In the afternoon it is in company of other animals that we will discover the taiga: sled dogs. Marie-Line and Arnaud will introduce you to their friendly huskies before we go for a 2-hour “cani-hike” in the forest.
In the evening, it is a very special ride that awaits us. We leave in the early evening with our dinner packed in our saddle bags. On the way and during our break on the shores of a lake we will be able to admire the very unique light of Swedish Lapland’s summer “nights”.
Night at the guest house.

DAY 3

Today is “Midsommarafton”, time for celebration! Everywhere in the Swedish countryside, whole families gather to celebrate this traditional high-point of the summer.
We drive to Norsjö, where people celebrate the day the same way as their ancestors did generations ago. We admire the dances in traditional clothes, share an animated lunch with the locals and dance around the maypole as tradition requires.
Dinner and night at the guest house.

DAY 4

Breakfast at the guest house.
When everyone has rested enough after the exciting celebrations, we saddle our horses again and leave for a day-ride this time!
We will take our lunch on our way, in the forest. On the way, we will ride through the boreal forest and along shiny lakes and rivers. And maybe we will be able to spot a few wild animals?
We come back to the farm at the end of the day.
Dinner and night at the guest house.
