Welcome to us for a great winter adventure in northern Sweden with the best activities. You get to go reindeer sledging, ride an Icelandic horse, learn about the Sami culture, see reindeer, and drive a snowmobile. You have local guides with you these days, very familiar with the area and culture. During these days we also visit the famous ICEHOTEL. Hopefully, we will see northern lights, reindeer, moose and other animals. What you will experience when you visit us is both genuine and exciting.

After transfer to our farm the first day you start with a riding class in the afternoon to get familiar with the horses and the tölt. We eat a 3-course dinner together after. Outside the window, you will hopefully see moose and northern lights. The second day you go snowmobiling, two persons on each snowmobile. You learn how to drive a snowmobile that day and have outdoor lunch prepared over an open fire. In the evening you have then 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 will meet reindeer, try reindeer sledding, and learn about Sami culture and life. In the afternoon you visit the famous ICEHOTEL, have dinner at the restaurant and in the evening you come back to the farm. On the fourth day, you go for a shorter riding tour in the forest and we will take you to the airport/railway station.

During this week you stay overnight in a house on our small horse farm with double rooms, shared kitchen/living room and bathroom. Our farm is beautiful located close the Kalix river west of Kiruna in a small village. We serve local specialties, like game and fish. Most of the activities we do from our farm, but to some of them we go by car and the activities are probably done in another order than in this program and we always have to respect the winter weather.
