Icelandic horse riding in the beautiful nature of Kainuu

Kainuun
Vaellustalli

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are closing down at the end of June after 17 years of continuous operation. You are welcome to still book rides until June 21st but please note that we only have a couple of horses left in May/June 2024.

Kainuun Vaellustalli (Kainuu Horse Safaris) offers one hour trail rides with Icelandic horses for small groups. The rides are organized according to rider skill levels (novice-beginner-intermediate-experienced) and instruction is always available both in Finnish and in English. The age limit for trail riding is 10-12 years depending on skill level. For younger clients we have riding with a walker available by appointment.

We respect our horses, nature and its animals, and plan all our activities with an emphasis on safety. 

Programs

Our sweet tempered horses are happy to take you into the woods for a steady ride! 

  • All skill levels (with novice riders we ride only in walk)
  • 1 to 2 customers at a time
  • Age limits: 12 years for novice and beginner level riders, 10 years for intermediate riders

Price 50 €/person (incl. VAT 10%)

Suitable for children without riding experience: we’ll first groom the horse together and then head out to the forest for a little ride.

  • Total duration: approx. 1 hour  (it is also possible to split the hour between two children)

Price 40 € (incl. VAT 10%)

Instructions for your ride

We plan all our activities with an emphasis on safety. The rides are organized according to advance booking (no drop-ins) and according to skill levels. Please check the levels, limitations and other instructions before booking.

Location

We are located approx. 10 km from the Sotkamo village towards Kuhmo on the left side of the road when traveling from Sotkamo. The Kainuun Vaellustalli signs by the Kuhmo main road (road 76) will guide you all the way to the parking lot. We recommend you do not use a navigator to find us: they usually lead you to turn too early to the road Riekinrannantie, resulting that you miss the guide signs.
