Saaga Icelandic Horse stable organize experiences for people all over the world.We love and respect our beautiful Lappish nature, culture and traditions. Our Icelandic horses live in the immediate vicinity of Levi Centre, and we organise riding treks into the countryside for all riding enthusiasts in Levi's wonderful fell scenery.
The horses are small, cute and charming, yet strong, tough and sure-footed. Icelandic horses are often mentioned in Icelandic sagas; in days gone by, they were used as Vikings' warhorses, and were greatly respected.
No previous experience is required for the trek, as our good-natured, gentle horses can also take beginners safely on their backs into the forest or on the fells. Lower age limit for children is 12 years, unless they have previous experience of riding treks.
Welcome to see the fascinating world of Lapland. The world of snow and fire. The world of Midnight Sun and beautiful autumn colours. The world of thousands of stars and Northern Lights. It doesn’t matter if it is winter or summer, if you are experienced or beginner, just come to meet and fall in love with our charming Icelandic Horses !
"A breathtaking Lappish experience awaits you! Close your eyes take a deep breath. Breathe in the world’s cleanest air and slowly exhale. Tune you ears into the defining silence of nature. Listen with your eyes. Watch the sun paint its magic from the ever distant horizon. The snow covered fells produce so much light and contrast the mind struggles to take it all in at once. Feel the pulse and energy of your horse as it strolls through the fragrant pine forest. Listen to the snow fall off the bushes as you brush by. Feel the breeze against your cheeks as you cross an ice covered lake. You wish that time could stand still forever. You have to keep up with the pack. It’s time to go home and tell all of your magical day on horseback in the Lappish wilderness."
