Explore Winter - Sweden

Explore Winter and Ice Hotel

5 star rating   26 March 2022

Emily who has been on 25 In The Saddle rides. Lovely holiday exploring snowy Sweden | This isn't a holiday of fast and furious riding; but it was lovely exploring the snow covered forests in a picturesque, winder wonderland setting. Due to the conditions, it not always possible to go fast as the horses can stumble in the snow. The horses are very sure footed and are lovely to ride. Tilting was an excellent experience.

A lovely holiday with the chance to try a number of different activities including snowmobiling, snowshoeing, reindeer sledding and dog sledding. Not to mention visiting the Ice Hotel. Due to climate change, it was very warm for the time of year. It did snow on the last day, but not during the week. I would therefore recommend that if you are thinking of doing this holiday to book for earlier in the season, as this will increase your changes of having plenty of fresh snow.
