  • 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, the village’s old school.

If you come by train, a free ride is offered to you this afternoon!

We all meet during a nice dinner and we give you a presentation of the next 6 days.

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 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.

Theme of the day: the Sami culture and life in the Great North. We drive to a genuine reindeer farm, where 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.

After this special encounter, you get the chance to live a real Swedish experience: sauna and ice bath in the lake! Be ready to love it!

At the end of the day, we drive back to the farm for a fika. Dinner and night at the old school.

DAY 4

Breakfast at the guest house.

We now go for a 2-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 in Petikträsk, where Mathilda and Rolf welcome us warmly in their farm. Our cook is awaiting for us there with a hot sauna and a warm dinner. We spend the night in the guest house while the horses gets a nice rest in the barn.

The team will also of course be happy to wake you up in case of northern lights!

DAY 5

Another great day of riding in the Taiga! We leave Petikträsk after breakfast and take the direction of the stables. On our way, we open our eyes and hope to see reindeers or even an elk if we are lucky!

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 old school.

DAY 6

We take our breakfast at the old school, then we leave for Ruskträsk, where Morgan will present his beloved sled dogs. After a brief update on your equipment and the necessary instructions to drive your own sled, they will take you into a snowy wilderness. Forest tracks, frozen lakes… you discover unique sensations!

You make a break in the middle of the day for a wilderness lunch around the fire. Then driver and passager change roles*, and here we go again!

At the end of your first day as a musher, back to Svansele, we meet for a little “fika”.
Dinner and overnight in Svansele.

*Possibility to have your own sled for the whole day, with supplement.

DAY 7

After breakfast, we drive you to Skellefteå Airport or Jörn Train Station so you can take your transportation to Stockholm or anywhere you want to continue your adventure!
