  • 4 days and 3 nights in the wilderness, just us and the horses
  • Local and traditional food at every meal

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 7 days to you. Night in the guest house.

DAY 2

Breakfast at the guest house.

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.

In the afternoon we go for a short ride in the forest, enjoying the first hoof steps in the snow.

Dinner and night at the guest house.

DAY 3

Breakfast at the guest house.

Today we leave the horses to discover sled dogs!

In the morning we will drive to Flarken, where Fred will introduce you to his lovely sled dogs and take you for a beautiful ride in the snowy wilderness. You make a break in the middle of the day for a wilderness lunch around the fire. At the end of your first day as a musher, we meet again at Flarken for a cozy coffee break altogether.

We then drive back to Svansele

Dinner and night at the guest house.

DAY 4

Breakfast at the guest house.

We now go for a 4-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 well dressed, we can start our long ride in the wilderness. In the forest, around frozen lakes… our gentle horses will bring us to beautiful quiet places.

After the ride we stop at our friends Rolf and Mathilda’s home, in Petiträsk, where our cook is waiting for us. We spend the night in the guest house while the horses get a nice rest in the barn.

DAY 5

After a breakfast at the camp, we saddle the horses and head up to Bredträsk, our next camp on the shore of a beautiful frozen lake.

On our way, we open our eyes and hope to see reindeers or even an elk if we are lucky!

At the camp, a hot sauna and a warm dinner are waiting for us. And – who knows? – maybe beautiful northern lights!

DAY 6

Another great day of riding in the Lappish wilderness!

We leave Bredträsk after breakfast and take the direction of Vithatten, an old farm hidden in the middle of the forest, at the bottom of “the white hat mountain”. We will spend our last night in the wilderness there while the horses rest in their white field.

DAY 7

Last breakfast in the woods. After saddling the horses, we ride towards home through marshy areas and between small frozen lakes.

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.
