Riding Holidays in Norway
Experience the drama of Norway's natural world on a riding holiday. This sparsely populated country is suspended over the Arctic Circle, giving it an extraordinary landscape of deep sided fjords, glaciers, ice-fields and a dramatically fragmented coastline. Horse riding is a particularly popular past-time in this "Land of the Midnight Sun" and riding centres can be found in many areas offering day rides and week trails, catering for all levels of rider.
Enjoy sunny summer trail rides through the magical wilderness of the Jotunheimen Mountains in south Norway or winter sleigh driving holidays, across frozen lakes and rivers through the snow blanketed forests of Røros, home to the iconic Norway Winter Festival. Riding in Norway can be gentle canters on sturdy, sure-footed Fjord or Icelandic horses, across grassy meadows, pausing for picnic lunches beside glaciers and beautiful mountain lakes or carriage driving and horseback tours through forested foothills of the Blue Mountains with superb views to Rondane National Park. Stay in simple rustic cabins or on farms, experiencing first hand, the Norwegian’s "Friluftsliv" way of life - 'Life beneath the stars'. A traditional welcome from a warm friendly community, makes this an ideal location for families, groups or solo travellers.
From long days in the saddle riding on mobile tours in the stunning coastal fjords to dressage instruction in capital Oslo, Norway has an itinerary to meet every requirement and is an unforgettable destination to explore on horseback.
