This is our most popular tour and suitable for beginners.

This tour is the perfect way to experience the beauty of the Lofoten. No experience is needed, you will ride across the beach, over some small cliff towards a little fishing village. In the summer we can observe the local birdlife and if we are lucky, sea eagles. The tour also covers some old traces of Viking life on the island before heading back to the stable.

Everyone is welcome to join, this tour is slow-paced. For more experienced riders looking for a thrill check out our half and full-day tours.
