Accommodation

You will be accommodated in various accommodations provided by Horses of Taiga. For the first, the second, and the last nights, you will stay in a four-bed room in the village’s old school, one kilometer away from the farm. It is a simple room with two bunk beds. For sanitary, you need to go to the old school’s main building, just 20 meters away from their room (but need to walk a bit outside to go to the toilets). The bathroom, toilets, the kitchen, and the dining room are all in the old school.

Your third night of the tour will be in wilderness camps. These camps consist of very simple accommodation, without electricity nor running water. There you can enjoy nature and its quietness. You take water from the lake or river and cook meals over an open fire, while the horses rest in a cozy paddock right next to you. Some of the camps have a sauna where you can warm up and clean yourself a little after a long riding day.

Program

Day 1

You will arrive at Skellefteå Airport (SFT) or Jörn train station. Horses of Taiga will pick you up and drive you to your accommodation. If you come by train, a free ride is offered to you this afternoon. You all meet during a nice dinner and they will present the next four days to you. Your night will be spent at the village’s old school.

Day 2

You will have breakfast at the old school. For this first day of activity, you will discover their Icelandic horses and their specificities. You will get to know your companions for the next days during an easy ride in the forest, during which you will have the chance to try the tölt, a very special and comfortable gait. You will then come back to the farm for lunch. In the afternoon, you saddle your horse again and go discover more snowy paths.

Once back at the farm, you can warm up with a traditional Swedish Fika (coffee and homemade pastry). Your dinner and night will be at the village’s old school. There are other options for this day. You can join a visit to a reindeer farm, where you will learn about this typical northern animal and about the life of the Sami people, or a real dogsledding experience, during which you will have the chance to drive your own sled dog team through the snowy Lappish landscape with supplement.

Day 3

You will be served breakfast at the old school. You now go for a two-day adventure. After breakfast, you head up to the stables where you prepare your horse for the tour. When the horses are saddled, the lunch packed, and the riders well dressed, you can start your long ride in the wilderness. In the forest, around frozen lakes, your gentle horse will bring you to beautiful quiet places. After the ride, you stop at Rolf and Mathilda’s home in Petikträsk, where your cook is waiting for you. You spend the night in the guest house while the horses get a nice rest in the barn.

Day 4

Your breakfast will be at the farm. After saddling the horses, you ride towards home through marshy areas and between small frozen lakes. Once back at the stables, you will thank your horses and let them rest after this adventure. You certainly also need a rest yourself, which you take at the guest house around a filling dinner. Your night will be spent at the old school.

Day 5

After breakfast, they drive you to Skellefteå Airport (SFT) or Jörn train station so you can take your transportation to Stockholm.
