You can taste, smell, feel and experience Hälsingland from horseback. Follow me on a two-day riding holiday with sleepover in a traditional pasture. A horse tour for everyone.

In the past, the land immediately surrounding a farm was usually only enough to supply winter food for the animals. Therefore the animals themselves were kept in forest pastures, which were often collectively managed by a number of nearby farms.

The animals were accompanied by female farmhands who aside from tending to the animals also produced butter and cheese.

Now you have the chance to visit a historic place on horseback or by horse-drawn carriage. Our pasture is about a three-hour ride from the farm, with the road partially overlapping with the Saint's Path, which is the road Saint Bridget took to Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway. We will also pass the tomb of Saint Stephen, the apostle of Hälsingland who was stoned to death here in the middle ages.

We of course offer delicacies like goat cheese and Swedish bread. We spend the night either in the pasture itself or a nearby hunting lodge.
