Lofoten by Horseback
Enjoy a horseback ride on a wonderful arctic beach.
Wonderful Arctic Beach
View over a ridge and cliffs with an open view towards Gimsøy
Level 3: Active - good mobility needed
Appropriate clothing and footwear.
We start at the stable at Hov and ride at the oval track before we ride on the white sandy beach. The ride also goes through the amphitheatre and what we believe was a place of sacrifice from the Viking age called “Hovet”. We pass remains of the boat houses for longships that the Vikings who once lived on Hov used in their voyages. After the beach we ride past our nordic style lodges and over a ridge and cliffs by the sea with a great open view towards the outside of Gimsøy. During the trip we ride past the traditional fish racks where the stockfish is made and through the lovely fishing harbour of Hovsund.
