Winter week (non-rider)
Here you see an example of the week-long program:
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 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) around 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 and you will 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. 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 arctic wildlife 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 the 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 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.
