Welcome for a great winter adventure in the north of Sweden with the best of activities. You get to go reindeer sledging, ride Icelandic horses, learn about the Sami culture and see reindeer and drive snowmobiles. You have local guides with you these days who are very familiar with the area and culture. During these days you will also visit the famous ICEHOTEL. You will feel peace and quiet, and be much out in nature. Hopefully, you will see northern lights, reindeer, moose and other animals. What you will experience when you visit us is both genuine and exciting.
After transferring to the farm the first day, you start with a riding class in the afternoon to get familiar with the horses and the tölt. Guests eat a 3-course dinner together after. Outside the window, you will hopefully see moose and northern lights. The second day, you go snowmobiling with two persons on each snowmobile. You learn how to drive a snowmobile this day and have outdoor lunch prepared over an open fire. In the evening you have 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 people share 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 are going to visit the famous ICEHOTEL, have dinner at the restaurant and in the evening you come back to the farm. On the fourth day, you go for a shorter riding tour in the forest and are brought back to the airport/railway station.
During this week you stay overnight in a house on the small horse farm with double rooms, a shared kitchen/living room and a bathroom. The farm is beautifully located close to the Kalix River, West of Kiruna in a small village. You are served local specialities, like game and fish. Most of the activities are done on the farm, but some of them are reached by car and the activities are probably done in a different order than described in this program because respect needs to be shown against the winter weather. 4 days experience.1117€/person.
