Try a mountain ride

Even an inexperienced rider can have a go at riding a good-natured Icelandic pony in this spectacular mountain landscape. This whole-day ride starts in Ammarnäs village and follows part of Kungsleden (a 450-kilometre-long walking and skiing route) westwards towards the Aiger cabin.

Once you are up in the mountains you should be on the lookout for the rough-legged buzzard
and golden eagle and try to take in the enormous wide open spaces. After a sandwich lunch in the Aigert cabin you ride back to Ammarnäs village along the calm waters of the river Vindel. You´ll be back!
