Welcome to enjoy unforgettable horse riding tour in wilderness of Fell Lapland – The Land of the Reindeer! This trail riding trip takes you along sandy roads, trough wild forests, by lakes and over hills and fells. We overnight in wilderness cabins without electricity or running water. We will also build up the fence for horses and prepare the camp together.

During this amazing experience you will take care of your own horse and together we will prepare our meals and clean cabins in the mornings. Our finn horses are very safe and used to co-operating with different people.

    Just returned from our fantastic trip. My daughter and I went horseback riding guided by the wonderful Janka. Janka is exceptional and made us feel incredibly welcome. She was attentive, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable! We had a fantastic ride, so much so that my daughter went back two days later. (I'm a bit rusty after not riding for 4 years, so I was only comfortable with a fast trot.) Janka took my daughter on a more advanced ride, and the smile on her face when she returned was priceless. THANK YOU, Janka. We highly recommend it for an amazing horseback riding experience. We're already planning to visit again just to come here. The horses are absolutely gorgeous!!! Next time, I'll be sure to take a few lessons to regain more comfort in the saddle. This is truly the best place for horseback riding. Thanks again!

    We enjoyed a delightful horse riding tour in the snowy forest. It was absolutely wonderful, and the lady guiding us was incredibly kind. Just a heads-up, make sure to bundle up well—I ended up with sore feet afterwards! Despite that, it was still a fantastic experience.

    A 5-day horse trekking adventure around Pöyrisjärvi left a lasting impression and is an experience I'll cherish forever. The horses were incredible, and we had the opportunity to gallop on soft sand and swim with them in a lake. The diverse scenery and drinking from the rivers and creeks deepened my profound appreciation for Finnish nature. Our guide, Tanja, was exceptionally attentive, and her smile and laughter were true highlights of the trip. Everything went smoothly (thanks also to Juha) and we felt like a cohesive group trekking together, not just tourists. A big thank you to Päivi for organizing these unforgettable experiences for us to enjoy!
