Horse riding in Lofoten

Horse riding in Lofoten

The first people who came to Lofoten settled on Gimsøy, and most activity that occurred during the Viking Age took place here. Now you get to ride over the same fields and white sandy beaches as the Vikings did.   ​​​​

You come by bus from Svolvær through the beautiful landscape of Lofoten. The Icelandic horses are ready to receive you, and with their steady gait they will bring both beginners and more experienced riders into the evening. 

In summer there are sunlight and dazzling green fields. In winter it is completely dark and you hear the sea wave towards the beach while the northern lights wave across the sky.
