Ofelas Islandshästar | Feel well on Horseback in the Mountains of Kebnekaise (4 days star ride)



Imagine some days of riding in the mountains, day rides in the valley with nice trails and upon the mountains with a breathtaking view of the mountains of Kebnekaise. Stay overnight in Ratekjokk, a small Sami village where transportation is not possible by car, only possible by boat. Riding is both on paths and trails so there is the chance to vary the speed and the gaits. Stay overnight in a house and eat local specialities. After a day on horseback, enjoy the sauna and a three-course meal. This tour suits both experienced riders and beginners. The first day starts with an afternoon ride. You can stay to have coffee/tea during the tour. Before that, you are picked up in Kiruna. You have had lunch and go by car and boat to the other side of the Kalix river to Ratekjokk, a small Sami village where you will stay for some nights. When you come back after the riding, a sauna bath, a nice three-course meal with local specialities, and a nice time together await. You stay overnight in a house in Ratekjokk in which, there is a sauna, outdoor toilet and electricity. After breakfast the next day, you start riding upon the bare mountains and have an outdoor lunch which will be made for you over an open fire. A three-course meal for dinner will be eaten that day and there will be a possibility for a sauna time. On the last riding day, you ride a whole day tour with outdoor lunch and a three-course dinner back in Ratekjokk. After breakfast on the final day, you are driven back to Kiruna by boat and car. If you are leaving early that day, you and the whole crew can stay the last night on the farm in Puoltsa instead if you want. This tour might take place in Ratekjokk (south of the Kalix river) as the program above stated, or the location may change as in staying overnight on our farm in Puoltsa (north of the Kalix river). If the tour goes like staying overnight in Puoltsa you ride both from Puoltsa and from Nikkaluokta to where you can go by car. This tour has a couple of departures this summer, if you want to come on other dates it can be possible (by agreement). If you need extra accommodation before or after the tour, please contact us. This tour is suitable for both experienced and less experienced riders. The activities can be in another order. The Icelandic horses are certainly strong, but not so large. The maximum weight of the rider is 90 kg and the minimum age is 12. 4 days experience. 758€/person
