This adventure lets you meet Icelandic horses, enjoy nature, gather around a campfire, learn about Sami culture and stay overnight in a traditional Sami tepee (lávvu). The main focus is on horseback riding, nature, weather and food, away from the stresses of everyday life. 

It's perfect for people who want to ride through mountains, take in stunning views and enjoy the peacefulness of a sparsely populated area. The route mainly goes through wild terrain or narrow trails. It's also for those who are willing to help with camping tasks and are ready to forgo luxury to fully embrace the natural environment.

Route details

Day 1
Our First Ride

We meet in the morning on our farm for shared transportation to our starting point. To our farm you can come with bus or car.

We ride through the forest, over swamps and up to the bare mountain. You get a horse which suits you. 

We ride on the south side of the Kalix river and arrive to our overnight place in the afternoon. During the tour we have an extra horse carrying the food and other things, but everyone carries her/his own personal things in saddle-bags on the own horse.

Both nights we sleep in a Sami tepee (lávvu) where we sleep in sleeping bags round the fireplace. In the tepee we can make a fire if we want to.

It is good if you have some experience of camping. The food we cook together over a fire. The food is exclusive specialties from this area, for example reindeer meat and fish prepared in a traditional way.
