Sweden, Lapland - Winter week on horeseback (7 days)
Welcome to spend a great winter adventure in the north of Sweden with the best of activities. It is exit-ing to ride in the snow, in the forest on smaller tracks in the dark and during day light. Except of riding tours you will receive riding classes, visit the famous ICEHOTAL, go ice fishing with snow mobile and go reindeer sledding during this week. You will learn about the Sami culture and have Sami guides with you these days, who of course are very familiar with the area and culture. You will feel peace and quiet and spend lots of time out in the nature. Hopefully you will see northern lights, reindeer, moose and other animals these days. What you will experience, is both genuine and exiting.
Here you see an example of the week-long program:
After transfer to the farm the first day you start with an introduction in the afternoon to get familiar with the horses. You eat a 3-course dinner together after. 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 will go out on a riding tour in the dark looking for northern lights and spend the evening in the goahti (Sami hut) round the fire eating dinner. 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 even spend the night there for an extra cost), have dinner at the restaurant and in the evening, you come back to the farm. The fourth day you will receive a riding class and learn about riding Icelandic horses and in the afternoon, you will visit the town Kiruna and the Sami museum. The next day you ride in the forest, probably seeing moose. In the afternoon, you can have a sauna, from where you have a beautiful view over the river and mountains. The sixth day you ride in the forest and in the afternoon, you will get a riding lesson. The last day you will have a transfer back to Kiruna.
