Horses of Taiga - Horse riding in the wilderness

Horses of Taiga wants to give everyone who has the spirit of adventure the chance to discover our wonderful polar area from the back of kind horses and in total respect for nature and local people.

All around us we can enjoy the calm but wild feeling of the Swedish Taiga also known as boreal forest. It is in this mysterious and quiet terrain that we offer you to ride, from one hour to a whole week.

Everyone is welcome, beginners and more experienced riders. We adapt speed and route to your experience. The size of the group (max 4 persons) makes it easy for everyone to follow.

So hop on one of our Icelandic horses and catch on our adventure!
