Horse Trekking: Mountain Adventure (2-days)Riding in the surroundings of Beitostølen, in the wilderness of the foothills of the Jotunheimen and Langsua national parks. The mysterious legends of the Trolls and the Giants. The perfect outdoor adventure for those who want to experience more than a single day trip.
The trekking route departs from a farm close to Beitostølen and heads inland towards more mountainous terrain. Along the way you’ll enjoy great views towards the Jotunheimen and Langsua national parks. When joining the trip in Spring you’ll experience a lush green landscape, with new flora sprouting up contrasting the snowline high up in the big mountains. During the autumn, you’ll be riding through the beautiful autumnal colors with views to mountain peaks covered in fresh snow.
An experienced guide will meet and welcome you at the farm. The guide will help you pack your equipment into the saddlebags, and after initial, necessary instructions, pair you up with a suitable horse according to your size and riding ability. You will be shown how to prepare your four-legged companion for the trip.
The guide will also give you details about the forthcoming trek and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. It’s then time to mount-up and head off on the adventure trek.
The trekking destination of the day will be a old traditional mountain farm. The Mountain farm will be our retreat for the night. There is no electricity in the cabin, but we guarantee a cozy warm atmosphere with candle lights and a fire place.
Whilst you relax after a day in the saddle, you can listen to and watch the horses grazing outside in the mountain pasture.
The following morning your guide will meet you after breakfast. You will pack your things and groom and saddle the horses. Then it’s time to begin our trek back to the village.
