1. Lofoten: Guided Horse Riding Tour Over Hov and Hovsund
Ride by Icelandic horse from the Hov Gård stable, and take in a scenic ride along Gimsøya Island’s coastline with your guide. See an Arctic beach, a fishing village, and Viking remnants. First, meet your guide and get introduced to your horse for the tour. Get fitted for your helmet, and hear a quick introduction form your guide about how to handle the reins. Then, begin your ride over Hov, an Arctic beach, at a slow pace. We sometimes get lucky enough to observe our local bird life in the summer, including the majestic sea eagle. Next, head 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.
