Tour program

Want to discover your inner cowboy? Maybe you are yearning to go on an adventure? Do you dream of experiencing beautiful Norwegian nature by horseback?

If yes, then this is the trip for you!

The trek route takes you further into the mountains where you will see vibrant landscapes, rich in Norwegian culture and history. Feel the power of your horse carry you safely over the mountain roads and paths, inland towards Olestølen. On hot days why not take a refreshing dip in the mountain lakes of Javnin or Olevann.

Trip description

Your guide for the day will meet you at the farm, where you will receive some practical information about the trip. You will then be give the necessary equipment you need, and pack your food, drink, and trip essentials into the saddle bags. Once you have been assigned your horse for the day, your guide will show new riders how to brush your horse and how to saddle-up.

Beginners will receive instructions from the guide on how to start, stop and turn when riding, and also how to handle the horse on the ground. Then you’re ready for the trip.

Halfway through the trip we arrive at a traditional mountain farm by the shore of Olevann. Here we make camp! First we feed and water the horses before we head for the campfire, enjoy a snack and a hot drink. Your guide is happy to answer any questions about the horses and the area. Maybe she also has some stories to tell.

When both people and horses are feeling refreshed and relaxed after a break, we start the trek back to the farm. Then it’s time to give your goodbye hugs to the horses and thank them for the trip. Maybe you’ll see them again soon.

The tours are set up in groups according to rider experience level. For experienced riders there will be chances to canter and trot. The trip can also be taken at a slower pace, adapted to beginners and children from 4 years and up, so the whole family can join.
