Horseback riding is an enjoyable way of discovering the nature of this region.

This excursion begins at the meeting point in Saariselkä. Your group will be small, with a maximum of 4 participants, for a personalised experience. You will meet your experienced guide, who will introduce you to the friendly horses native to Finland. No prior experience is required, however, the trail may be slightly more challenging than a tour suited to complete beginners. The guide will go through a safety briefing and horse riding lesson, before you saddle up and prepare to set off!

The guide will lead you on your horses into the wild forest that surrounds the farm. During the winter months, snow will cover the trees and ground, creating a beautiful winter wonderland. You will wander off the known trail to explore new routes through the wilderness. If you feel comfortable, your guide will teach you how to speed up as the horses trot through the snow. Keep an eye out for some of the wildlife that is native to the area, your guide will help you spot them or their footprints. After the excursion, you will return to the starting point and say goodbye to the affectionate horses.
