Horse Excursions to the Wilds of North
Memorable horse riding excursion
What’s so special about our riding excursions? Well, you’ll experience the arctic nature and its wonders: northern lights, the polar night, the midnight sun. Have you ever ridden a horse in deep snow? Try some Finnish specialities like sauna and ice swimming. Enjoy the wilderness more freely than anywhere else. On our excursions, we won’t see any people for days. We’ll be enjoying the camp fire and go fishing. We’ll quench our thirst drinking fresh water from a stream. And, a dependable Finnish Horse will take us there. There are dozens of tales about the wisdom, work morale and loyalty of the Finnhorse. He is calm and steady, thus suitable for beginners, but it most certainly can speed himself up to serve a more accomplished rider.
Good to know before taking one of our horse excursions
The height at the withers of a Finnish Horse is mere 150–160 cm, but she is an immensely strong horse. She is able to pull twice her own weight–a world record in the horse kingdom! The Finnhorse is also the fasted cold-blooded horse in the world. She has a friendly character, she is co-operative and humble, but does know her own worth.
RIDING EXCURSION TO THE FELLS
First, we’ll learn about the fantastic Finnish Horses. Then we’ll go through the basics of riding and head for the nearby fells. We’ll go as slowly or fast as needed. The Finnhorse is a calm breed, however, on longer excursions, previous riding experience is necessary. One must control the horse whether she is galloping or trotting. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a nice cup of coffee with a sweet treat.
RIDERS OF THE WILDERNESS
The riding trail meanders in the wilderness. We’ll be riding four hours a day stopping for lunch in between. We’ll stay the night in a cabin enjoying the silence of the wilderness. At the cabin, everyone shall participate in looking after their horse and helping with chores. A tasty dinner and warm sauna are a perfect ending to a long day outdoors.
Horse sleigh rides
SLEIGH OR A CARRIAGE RIDE
A sleigh drawn by a Finnhorse makes an impressive entrance to a party! Great for birthdays, weddings, or stag/hen nights. Sit back and relax, enjoy the ride under a warm blanket. When there’s no snow, take a nostalgic carriage ride.
GOOD OLD LAPLAND
A sleigh ride takes you and your friends through the quiet and white northern forests–the real winter wonderland. This peaceful ride reminds us of the old days and ways. Suitable for all ages.
