Horseback riding with Tromsø lyngshest

The Lyngen horse is one of Norway's national breeds and a part of our cultural legacy.

Like the people of the north, it has a complex origin and has developed under the unique natural conditions of the region for centuries. It was made and born under the light of the midnight sun, raised and hardened in the flames of the Northern Lights in the sky, thus creating the strength, diversity and authenticity we know in this little horse.

This is ideal for adults and young people with riding experience. It's an advantage if you know the start, stop and turn function, but not a requirement.

Children must be accompanied by parents from the age of 10.

Weight limit 95 kg.

You get your own horse that you groom and saddle up. You also take care of the horse after the ride.

Practical information:

Duration: 2-3 hours  - around 60 minutes of riding.  
Capacity: 4 people
Price: NOK 1800 per person
Start Time: 10:00 (The start time can vary due to weather.)
