For this once-in-a-lifetime New Year we offer you:

  • A comfortable accommodation every night

  • A real Swedish New Year’s Eve: good food and happy company

Day-by-day program

DAY 1

Arrival at Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station.

We pick you up and drive you to your accommodation, in Svansele. During your stay you will sleep in the room by the “bagarstuga”, the village’s fire oven. Bathroom and kitchen are located in the next house, the old school.

You meet us around a nice dinner and we present you the next 7 days.

Night in Svansele.

DAY 2

Breakfast at the old school.

For this first day of activity you will discover our Icelandic horses and their specificities. You will get to know your companions for the next days during an easy ride in the forest, during which you will have the chance to try the tölt, a very special and comfortable gait. We come back at the farm for lunch.

In the afternoon we saddle our horses again and go discover more snowy paths. Once back at the farm, you can relax all your muscles in the cosy wood sauna.

Dinner and night at the village’s old school.

DAY 3

Breakfast at the guest house.

This day is dedicated to the Sami culture. In a genuine reindeer farm, you will get to share a moment with a Sami family and will have the chance to learn more about their animals and their lifestyle.

Dinner and night in the old school.

DAY 4

In the morning we will drive to Ruskträsk, where Lina and Morgan will introduce you to their 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, you drive back to Svansele.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 5

It’s New Year’s Eve!

Breakfast at the old school.

This day is your day off! Everyone is free to prepare the New Year as they wish. Outside playing in the snow, inside playing board games or reading, there are many possibilities!

The evening is dedicated to celebration. Altogether, we will welcome the New Year around a festive dinner carefully prepared by our chef.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 6

After a good breakfast, we head up to the farm to meet our 4-legged friends again. And this time, we ride for a whole day!

We will take our lunch with us in our saddle bags and have a nice break in the forest in the middle of our ride.

Back at the farm, we take care of our horses before warming up ourselves with comforting refreshments.

Dinner and night in Svansele.

DAY 7

Breakfast at the old school.

Today you get the chance to try a new way to move on the snow: the altaï ski. This ski has its origins in Asia where hunters used it for their travels. Short and wide, it is a mix of crooss-country skiing and snowshoeing. Ideal to move on the northern woodlands, whether you are beginner skier or not.

After a first try in the morning, you come back at the farm for a warm soup. You then enter the forest again for more skiing sensations.

After a nice sauna time, you go back to the old school for dinner.

DAY 8

After breakfast, we drive you to Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station so you can take your transportation to Stockholm.
