Dag for dag
Bus from Oslo
Early in the morning (8.30am) you will leave Oslo with our comfortable bus. Enjoy the scenic journey from Oslo to the Valdres Region. After leaving the bustle of the capital you will soon find yourself on countryside roads passing through small towns and surrounded by lakes and fields. As you get further into the country, you will see the mountains of Jotunheimen in the distance. Your destination for today. The coach has comfortable adjustable seats, free WiFi, outlets with USB charging ports and toilet facilities on board.
One of our experienced guides will meet and welcome you at the farm.
Theye will help you pack your equipment into the saddlebags, and after initial, necessary instructions, pair you up with a suitable horse according to your size and riding ability. You will be shown how to prepare your four-legged companion for the trip.
The guide will also give you details about the forthcoming trek and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. It’s then time to mount-up and head off on the adventure trek.
At the end of the day, we arrive at our traditional mountain farm which will be our retreat for the night. There is no electricity in the cabin, but we guarantee a cozy warm atmosphere with candle lights and a fireplace.
Whilst you relax after a day in the saddle, you can listen to and watch the horses grazing outside in the mountain pasture.
Traditional Mountain Farm (no electricity)
Dinner: we prepare you a dinner in the cabin
After breakfast, you will prepare the horses for today’s ride. About halfway on the ride you will make a camp, feed the horses and get some snacks and warm drinks, before we go back to the farm.
Today you are going back to Oslo. You can choose to participate in morning care after breakfast before taking the bus to Oslo.
Another option is to ad another half-day of riding (extra costs).
Our experienced guide will give you a basic introduction on how to start, stop and steer the horse, before heading out on the trip. Older children and/or those with some experience and adults, can ride alone. However young children and inexperienced riders will have someone to lead their horse. This can be either a trek assistant or a parent. Parents will get an introduction to how to lead the horse safely. If you want to ride yourself but would like one of our trek assistants to lead your child’s horse, please remember to let us know in advance.
At the summer farm, we provide you with bedlinen and towels.
Please bring some food with you for the bus ride. We will serve you the first meal in the evening and a lunch at day 2.
