You are picked up at Icehotel by bus and taken to Ofelaš Icelandic horse farm where you get to meet the animals and prepare your own horse. You ride the Icelandic horses through the moose’s grazing land with an amazing view over Sweden’s highest mountain range Kebnekaise.

The king of the forest, the moose, is often seen in this area getting their food during winter, and you have a chance to come really close. This nature adventure has everything – beautiful views, wild animals, and strong horses.

After the ride, you help unsaddle the horses and you are served a traditional lunch. The tour ends with a transfer back to Icehotel.
