  • Absolutely recommend Horses of Taiga. I was recently on the Frozen New Year Tour and it was even better than my high expectations. I’m not a seasoned rider and wanted to experience half-day and day.....  more »
  • Even before we arrived it was clear that Fló is a host who wants her guests to have the best vacation possible. We asked for a combination of 2 tour options (midsommar and the long trail) and within.....  more »
  • Truly Excellent. We had a lovely trip with Horses of Taiga in March 2019. Flo is an excellent guide and cook and the horses are all lovely. When booking holidays like this, you often worry about how professional a company is, and sending money via bank transfer abroad is always daunting. Flo was really helpful throughout the booking process and gave lots of tips on what to bring and on organising things. Getting there is no problem, flights to Stockholm and Skelleftea (pronounced Shell-eff-tay-o) are frequent and at sensible times. Flo will pick you up from Skelleftea which is a tiny airport so no problem finding her as there’s only one room in arrivals! The accommodation in Winter is in the old bakery in Svansele which is basic, but clean and warm. Meals and showers are a (slightly cold) 30 second walk to the next building which is the old school. The night away is in a guest house in Petiktrask which was clean and smart, but a little chilly when we went as the pipes had frozen. Flo’s great food and company more than made up for this. We were a vegetarian and a vegan and this was no problem at all for her. The Horses are really amazing, fit, friendly and strong and with great characters. You really feel privileged to be trusted with these animals which are clearly not just ‘working horses’ but part of Flo’s family. In just three days we saw the Northern lights, frozen lakes, reindeer being herded and the incredible Taiga forest. We are definitely planning to visit again and I would recommend highly.
  • Had an excellent winter ride on beautiful snowy forest tracks and along a frozen lake. Even saw a moose along the way! Lovely horses and overall great time would thoroughly recommend.
