The Icelandic horse has stayed the same since the Norse first put their foot on Iceland.
For a good reason. No other horse can match the Icelandic horse when exploring this type of heavy terrain. Their size and carribility together with their incredible mentality makes it easy to understand why they were the choice of our ancestors – the Vikings, who brought the horse to Iceland over 1.000 years ago.

Karolina is the owner and also one of the guides. She lives for the horses. Her passion is to give what she gets from the icelandice horses and nature.
  • With experienced guides you will enter the wild, silence and mystical forest of Sweden on horseback.
  • Learn more about the Icelandic horse, nature and Swedish wild animals.
  • Feel this strong, yet agile and secure horse, effortlessly cruising in the famous gait – tölt, trough enchanting scenery with nothing on your schedule other than being in the presence.
  • No riding experience is nessecery.

How would you feel standing eye to eye with the Swedish King – the moose?

Well, if we keep quiet enough, there is a chance we will.

This area of Sweden inhabits the largest brown bear population per square mile in Europe. Can you imagine the sensation of euphoria and adrenaline when finding fresh pawprints on our path?

Fresh pawprints from a brown bear. We had some guests from Germany this day. ” I have never been this close by nature and wildlife before. I can´t fined words for this experience, you just have to be in it to understand what im trying to say ” (Gilbert 58 age)


The shy lynx, the rare and mythical wolverine, the roedeers, squirrels, capercaillie, hares, foxes, martens and all the other residents of the forest will for sure make the trip worth your while.
Taste the pure magic of Swedish wilderness when your ride in the middle of it.
