Summer excursion

Horse riding in Rovaniemi

Escape on horseback through the forests of Lapland.

This activity is equally for beginners and experienced riders: it was thought and made for the whole family.

During this programme, we will take you to a family stable located 30 minutes away from Rovaniemi on the riverbanks of Kemijoki. The ride take place in the forest, along paths used by reindeer and many other animals. In addition to taking place in a typical landscape, horseback riding is so calm that you may have the chance to come across and observe wildlife. The speed always depends on the skills of the less experienced rider. You can choose between a one-hour ride (for beginners and experienced riders) and a two-hour ride (only for experienced riders: riders at ease at three gaits).

Animal rights: In this stable, everybody takes great care of the horses. They ride enough to stay healthy, but never too much. The stable’s staff make sure the horses are well treated: this is why they chose to make them live together in fields instead of individual stalles.

About the horses and the stable…

The stable which we work with in Rovaniemi is a family stable, on a human scale, where the owners (and employees), work with passion. The horses are Irish Cob: they are hardy, and well adapted to the Finnish winter temperatures. Moreover, they have a calm temperament: they are perfect for hiking.
