Lofoten by Horse

Lofoten by Horse

This is our most popular tour and is suitable for beginners.

Our Lofoten By Horse tour starts at the Hov Gård stable and offers a scenic ride along Gimsøya Island’s coastline. First, you’ll ride over Hov, an arctic beach, before heading towards the fishing village of Hovsund. After a gentle climb and more spectacular views, you can catch a glimpse of the traditional fish-drying racks while riding past ancient remnants from the Viking age before heading back to the stable. We sometimes get lucky enough to observe our local bird life in the summer, including the majestic sea eagle.

This tour does not require any experience, and everyone is more than welcome to join. Lofoten by horse is slow-paced, so if you have experience and are looking for something more advanced, look at our longer tour options. This tour cannot be adapted for more experienced riders.

If you have a special request, desire a private tour, or need a transfer, you can find the information on our private tours and extra services page.

We provide helmets, warm clothes, rain gear, boots, and gloves. We put safety first, and if the weather conditions are unsafe, we will have to reschedule. Read our Terms and Conditions here.
