Horses

Our partner and outfitter has been conducting riding tours throughout the region around the Sweden/Norway border since 1971, and he imports his horses directly from Iceland. The herd of 35 horses has been selected because of their strength and reliability required in such mountainous terrain.
Often called the horse of the Gods, the Icelandic horse came with the first Nordics whom settled on Iceland around the 7th century. For over 1000 years, these horses have lived isolated on Iceland, while they are growing in popularity as riding horse imports around the world. Incredibly smooth and comfortable to ride, the horses have unique primal gaits called the “tølt” and "flying pass". “Tølt” is a fast four paced movement and when the horse “tølts” it lowers its back and raises its head and neck. The rider sits almost still in the saddle, and the horse flows beneath with barely a bump to its rider!

Staff
Ole has been guiding mountain tours for over 20 years. He is familiar with each valley, field and stream and he knows every farmer in the area. He has accumulated a wealth of knowledge about the landscape we are riding in. Furthermore, he knows a great number of stories about the mountains and about people who have traveled them in the past. He leads week trips as well as some 3 days tours and tent tours.

Oddmund has imported about 700 Iceland horses to Norway of which most have been tamed personally by him. Even though Oddmund is so-called retired, he is still fully engaged and involved in the center. He lives at Stuguvollmoen where the horses stay during the summer.

Eilert has worked since 2011 as a tour leader. He graduated hoof smith from Vången highschool in Sweden and can count many years of experience when it comes to horses in the mountains. His extensive guiding experience and knowledge makes him very valuable.
