8 days & 7 nights
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. You meet us 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 afternoon we go for a short ride, enjoying the first hoof steps in the taiga.
Dinner and night at the guest house.
Breakfast at the guest house. We now leave for a 5-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 to go, we can start our long ride in the wilderness. In the forest, around beautiful lakes… our gentle horses will bring us to beautiful quiet places.
We will take our lunches on our way, in the forest.
For the nights, we will stay in wilderness camps in simple wooden cabins without electricity nor running water, most of the time by a lake and surrounded by the boreal forest’s wildlife. Every evening we will meet our cook who will have driven our luggage to the camp and we’ll prepare our dinner over the camp fire. Some days we will have the chance to warm ourselves up in a nice sauna!
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.
