You start to sense the atmosphere already in Ammarnäs, a small mountain village at the beginning or end of the road, depending on how you look at it. Ammarnäs is a small mountain village in of one of Europe’s largest protected areas, Vindelfjällen nature reserve, a wild and exciting part of Swedish Lapland.
Ammarnäsfjällens Islandshästar offers you various rides on Icelandic horses in the magnificent mountain scenery. The ride goes along the river Vindel’s unregulated waters, along the banks of the river, into the forest or up into the bare mountain region above the tree line. The speed varies from an easy walking pace to a glorious gallop. Try the rack, that particular gait that makes the Icelandic horse so easy to ride. Horse riding tours from 2 hours up to 4-5 days. You can also try a log-fired sauna and/or bathe in the wooden bathtub at the company´s base ”Hedebo farm”. Eco-tourism operator since 2003 (”Nature´s best”).
