We are a family owned and operated tourist company offering tours by horse-drawn sleigh along the beautiful Alta River. Our farm sits just outside of Alta in idyllic surroundings – arctic nature at its best in all directions! Our tours are designed to give you a peek inside rural life here in arctic Norway: sleigh rides through fabulous scenery, the hearty flavors of northern Norwegian food, and time spent with farmers who have built a life here in the far north.
I have been around horses since i was 11 years old. I grew up caring for them and working with them, and tourism with horses is a way for me to continue that work and way of life.
I have loved nature all my life. You get a special kind of peace when you sit around the campfire watching the fire burn.
Besides horse sleigh driving, I practice roping and mountain riding, and pretty much everything else you can use a horse to do.

When I was 20, I traveled to the US to practice horsemanship, and I have been riding ever since. I practice roping, and was once named the Norwegian champion in dummy roping. Now, I run a farm that involves meat production, and I use the horses for work.

We use fjordinger (Norwegian Fjord Horses) to pull our sleighs. They are an old, traditional breed of horses known for their exceptionally steady, low-stress personality.
Pictured here is Fjellblom (say «Fyell-bloom»), which is Norwegian for «mountain flower». Fjellblom is 11 years old and unbelievably calm… and simply loves petting and attention!
