Winter week (non-rider)
Spend an exciting winter week with us and do a lot of different activities, like riding in the snow and dark and go reindeer sledging. We also visit the famous Icehotel and go ice fishing with snow mobile during this week. You learn about the Sami culture and have Sami guides with you these days, very familiar with the area and culture. You will feel peace and quiet, and be much out in the nature. Hopefully you will see northern lights, reindeer, moose and other animals these days. What you will experience when you visit us is both genuine and exciting.
Here you see an example of the week-long program:
After transfer to our farm the first day you start with a introduction in the afternoon to get familiar with the horses. We 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 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 have a reindeer sledging 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, have dinner at the restaurant and in the evening you come back to the farm. The fourth day you go on a cross country skiing/snow shoeing tour and in the afternoon we visit the town Kiruna and the Sami museum. The next day you go on a moose safari tour with snowmobile and in the afternoon you will have a sauna, from where you have a beautiful view over the river and mountains. The sixth day you can by car go to to small village Nikkaluokta, it is a nice scenery to drive there and also go chances to photograph. The afternoon is free for you, you can maybe read a book, try kick sledging, have a walk. The last day we bring you back to Kiruna.
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 to the Kalix river west of Kiruna in a small village. We serve you local specialities 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 have always to respect the winter weather.
