Horse Riding


A unique way to take in the mountain terrain during the summer months.

You and your family can add horse riding in Lyngen Norway to your holiday itinerary.    

The Lyngshest horses are a unique breed of horse especially bred within the Lyngen region. In past days, these horses were the backbone of the local workforce, supporting the farming and forest industries. The breed nearly died out until a recent rescue from an enthusiast breeder has seen the number grow and now a healthy number work in recreational riding.

The Lyngshest is a strong sturdy good natured horse that is able to negotiate mountain terrain with ease and transport you through mountainous landscapes to reach lakes, rivers and magnificent viewpoint locations high above the fjords.
