This is our most popular tour. This is a remarkable nature experience for both beginners and experienced riders. We ride along sandy beaches, past ancient remnants from the Viking Age, on ridges with beautiful open views towards Gimsøy. On the trip we also ride by racks of stockfish and out to the small and pleasant fishing harbor Hovsund. On the trip we can divide the group so that those who want to ride with a faster pace and test tølt can do it, while those who want slower pace can continue walking. We adjust the horses and the pace to the riders experience. The tour is suitable for families and groups who wish to have a great experience together.
