This tour is is a perfect way to see the mountains. This adventure allows you to acquaint yourself with the Icelandic horse, immerse in nature, gather around a campfire, gain insight into Sami culture and spend the night in a traditional Sami tepee (lávvu). 

The focal points of this experience revolve around horseback riding, natural surroundings, weather and sustenance, far removed from the pressures of daily life. This journey is tailored for individuals seeking to ride mountainous landscapes, revel in breathtaking views and revel in the solitude of an area sparsely populated. Our route predominantly goes on untamed terrain or narrow trails. It is also designed for those willing to assist with camping duties and embrace a lack of luxury in order to fully embrace the natural environment.
