While visiting the farm, we did the night time horseback ride followed by traditional Sami meal. Our guide Sara was attentive, knowledgeable and personable. Would definitely recommend this trip!

What an amazing experience. The horses are so delightful and calm and riding them through the forest looking for moose was genuinely a magical experience. We saw lots of moose which was fantastic. A home cooked meal at the end of the tour was delicious.
