Experience a weekend on horseback in Lofoten!

Friday: Welcome and get to know the guides and horses

We pick you up at Leknes or Svolvaer airport and drive to Hov to check in at the Lofoten Links Lodges. After that delicious welcome dinner will be enjoyed in our Låven Restaurant.

After dinner we’ll meet the horses and go for our first ride together: Northern lights tour. This is an easy ride (about 2 hours) to become familiar with the guides and horses. Hopefully, we will get to see the northern lights!
