8 days & 7 nights
If you enjoy spending time in the nature with a nice little horse as your best friend, this horse trek is made for you!
During this pure horsey adventure we offer you:
Arrival at Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station.
We pick you up and drive you to your accommodation.
If you come by train, a free ride is offered to you this afternoon!
We all meet during a nice dinner and we present the next 7 days to you.
Night in the guest house.
Breakfast at the guest house.
On this first day of activity you will meet your new friend! We will introduce our Icelandic horses, tell you a bit more about their specificities so you will get to know your companions for the next days.
In the morning we go for a first short ride in the taiga. We return to the farm for a lunch around the open fire, then go back on horseback all afternoon.
Dinner and night at the guest house.
Breakfast at the guest house. We now leave for a great 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 to go, we can start our 5-day ride in the wilderness. In the forest, around beautiful lakes… our gentle horses will bring us to beautiful quiet places.
We have lunch at Gröntjärn, the Green Lake, in the middle of the forest.
After a more sporty afternoon, we arrive at our first stop, on the shores of Lake Petikträsk. Swedish fika, bath in the lake and dinner around the fire are on the evening’s program. Night in a typical Swedish stuga, without running water nor electricity.
After a breakfast by the lake, we leave for a new riding day, discovering Lapland. We ride along the Skellefteälven river for most of the day, alternating between walk, long tölts and vigorous gallops. We have lunch by the river before heading back to our next camp: Dragnäs.
Tonight we sleep in a barn in the middle of the forest! Relaxation around the fire and walks in the surroundings, fika and dinner … enough to recharge our batteries.
Today, we continue our journey north, taking small wild trails and larger forest paths. Mooses and other northern animals live in the woods all around us, maybe we’ll be lucky enough to spot some of them.
Lunch by the water, with an extraordinary panorama of the surroundings. In the afternoon, we tölt and gallop towards the village of Järvträsk, where our next camp is located. On site we again find a typical stuga where we will spend the night.
After a good breakfast, we ride between marshes and forests passing by places full of stories. Your guide will be happy to tell you about them!
In the evening we retrieve the barn in Dragnäs for a well-deserved rest. And like every night, the horses sleep in a paddock set up just for them, a few steps from us.
Last breakfast in the woods. After saddling the horses, we ride towards home through marshy areas and between charming small 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.
After breakfast, we drive you to Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station so you can take your transportation to Stockholm.
