Riding through the swedish wildness (7 days/ 6 nights)
To choose a longer tour in the mountains is a perfect way to see the mountains. You get to know the Icelandic horse, have an adventure, be out in the nature, sit round a campfire, learn about the Sami culture and sleep in a Sami tent. The main things will be the horse, riding, nature, weather and food, a long way away from stress. This tour is for you who want to ride up in the mountains with great views, near the nature in an area where very few people are. Mostly you ride in pathless terrain or on paths and you adjust the tempo after the terrain. This is also for you who do not mind helping out with camping chores and not mind to be without luxury to experience the natural way of being out in the nature.When you arrive to Kiruna you will be picked up and then you go by car to our horse farm. You eat dinner together and you stay the night in a house at the farm in double rooms. The first day you start in the morning from a place close to the farm where you go by car and ride through the forest up on the bare mountains with a fantastic view. You get a horse which suits you. You ride on the south side of the Kalix river. This night you sleep in a Sami tepee where you sleep in sleeping bags round the fireplace. In the tepee you can make a fire if you want to. The two following nights you sleep in a cabin. During the tour you have an extra horse carrying the food and other things, but everyone carries her/his own personal things in saddle-bags on the own horse. The next morning you pack your things and ride over the bare mountain and come then down to the small sami settlement Ratekjokk where you stay for two nights. The fourth day you ride a day tour and come back to Ratekjokk. For the next two days you ride over the mountain with a night in a tepee and come back to Puoltsa where you stay overnight on the horse farm the last night. Then it will be nice to get a shower and after that you have the last dinner together.
