    I had the immense privilege to be able to walk with the equestrian center OFELAS Icelandic horses, and I recommend it to everyone who wants to blend in with a wild and peaceful nature in the heart of a beautiful nature reserve, Swedish. The experience is completely unforgettable, because wild animals are a few meters from us! We start by dealing with our horse, to get to know our future mount (even with a very low level of horse experience is to do because the horses are very quiet, and the ride is not. More guides are present to take care of the horses). Our guests make us then a small Court accelerated to recognize the footprints of animals present locally in fresh snow. We then ride these small and peaceful horses to stroll in the nearby forest, which is part of a national nature reserve. It's a real communion with nature is going on there. Wild animals are not bothered because the horses (and their horses) do virtually no noise in the Woods. To conclude the ride we are warmly invited to share the meal with the owners of the equestrian centre in their own kitchen that overlooks the box of horses, this is totally atypical. The meal is rich exchanges with guests who left of the Sami people, are inexhaustible on the nature, the flora and fauna of their region. It was an unforgettable encounter a region and a beautiful people.

Where to stay in Kiruna

In the Arctic town of Kiruna, most accommodations lie in town, including cottages, cabins, guesthouses, and a handful of mid-market hotels and bed and breakfasts. If your budget allows, stay in the world-renowned ice hotel. Abisko National Park is an hour or so outside the main town, so if that's your reason for visiting, opt to stay at a mid-market or upscale hotel near the park. You can also camp in the park itself and take a guided tour to see the Northern Lights.
