Live simply in Swedish Lapland.

The Icelandic horse has a certain way and temperament. It is an alert, brave and accommodating animal. It also has a great psyche, and a charm about them that catches most people that has the opportunity to ride them. Once you go riding icelandic horses, you’re hooked for life.

The icelandic horse has a tremendous ability to adapt to difficult terrains. This means you will experience everything the mountains has to offer from the back of a horse. You’ll gallop over vast mountain expanse and enjoy your own thoughts as the horse works beneath you in a solemn walk in the highlands, through herb meadows, past forest areas and lakes, and going up to mountain tops with stunning views.

Living simply can mean many things. In this case, it means stripping down to the essentials: living in close approximity to nature, giving you a genuine mountain holiday. You’ll stay in a cabin or a Nordic tipi with an outhouse toilet. In return you’ll get to enjoy one of Ammarnäs most beautiful views of the mountain landscape and the old barns in the river delta.

Ammarnäsfjällens Islandshästar host families, smaller groups of friends or couples looking for a romantic getaway. While not Sami, Ammarnäsfjällens Islandshästar uses six of the reindeer herding year’s eight seasons as a starting point for their adventures.
