The Icelandic Horse

The Icelandic horse is a sturdy breed with lots of personality. Known for their gentle and friendly temperament, these horses show great energy and willingness to work during rides. In addition to walk, trot, and canter, Icelandic horses also have two unique gaits: the "flying pace" and the "tolt", which is a soft and comfortable gait that all riders get to try out during the tour.

Meeting point

The rides start from the Stable. You can park at the Ski Stadium and walk to the hill to the right.

If you want to walk, you can cross Västbacken and turn right at Vildmarksnästet and continue past Fäboden.
