Northern lights tour on horseback
To watch the northern lights and a starry sky from the back of a horse is an amazing experience. Relaxation at it’s best. In the dark we have to put our trust in our four legged friends and sometimes the silence is broken by their small sounds. The night ends with dinner and conversation around the fire in a Sami hut.
We pick you up in Kiruna and go by car to our horse farm westwards. Together we prepare the horses for riding and in the winter evening we go for a shorter riding tour in easy pace through many hundred year old forest nestled against the mountain range. We hope we can see the beautiful northern lights and a clear sky with all the stars. We are probably going to see some moose during the evening. When you come back you will be served dinner consisting our local specialities like game or fish. You get to know more about animals, nature and culture while sitting around the fire in the goahti (sami hut). After we bring you back. This tour is certified with the Swedish Ecotourism Society’s label, Nature’s Best.
