Sweden, Lapland - Winter adventure (4 days)
Welcome to spend a great winter adventure in the north of Sweden with the best of activities. You get to go reindeer sledding, ride Icelandic horse, learn about the Sami culture and see reindeer, go by snowmobile and try ice fishing. You have Sami guides with you these days, very familiar with the area and culture. During these days you also visit the famous ICEHOTEL. You will feel peace and quiet and spend lots of time out in the fantastic nature. Hopefully you will see northern lights, reindeer, moose and other animals. What you will experience when you visit Lapland is both genuine and exciting.
After transfer to the farm the first day you start with an introduction in the afternoon to get familiar with the horses. You will then be served a 3-course dinner together. Outside the window you will probably see moose and maybe some northern lights. The second day you go ice fishing on a tarn up in the mountains and you go there by snowmobile, two persons on each snowmobile. You learn how to drive snowmobile this day and have outdoor lunch prepared over open fire. In the evening you go out for a riding tour in the dark looking for northern lights and spend the evening in the goahti (Sami hut) round the fire eating din-ner. The next day you have a reindeer sledding tour including lunch where two persons are sharing a sledge. That´s the old way of transportation for Sami people in this area. In the afternoon you visit the famous ICEHOTEL (you can stay the night for an extra cost), have dinner at a restaurant and in the evening, you come back to the farm. The fourth day you go for a shorter riding tour in the forest and afterwards you will be brought to the airport/railway station.
During these days you stay overnight in the guest house on the horse farm in double rooms, shared kitchen/living room and bathroom. The farm is beautiful located close to the Kalix river west of Kiruna. You will get served local specialties like game and fish.
It may happen the activities will take a different order than it is stated in the program. Overnight stay in double room in the house on the horse farm with shared kitchen, shower and toilet.
