Breath of a Horse

 

Hóll Stables

Join us for an exhilarating riding adventure and meet our beautiful team of Icelandic horses.

Hóll stables are situated in Paltamo in the region of Kainuu, northeast Finland. Kainuu is renowned for its pristine nature, wildlife, crystal clear lakes, waterways and ancient forests and hills. We are the land of the midnight sun and in our winter wonderland, we have some of the deepest snow in Finland. This means, here at Hóll stables, together with our Icelandic horses, we can offer a variety of treks taking in all our nature has to offer all-year-round; Yes. Even in the snow!

 

The Icelandic horse is bred for these harsh climates. They have special double layer coats that protect them in extreme environments. They are a calm, sturdy breed and make ideal travelling companions for beginners, children and advanced riders alike. Icelandic horses are also distinctive as they have 5 gaits; walk, trot, gallop, tölt and flying pace. The Tölt is unique to these plucky beasts and is a smooth and enjoyable way to ride.

For all our treks we travel at a comfortable pace to match the skill levels of the group. But don’t worry, we also get the chance to have a fast gallop.

 

So, whether you are on a family day out, looking for an activity to add to your holiday, or, just on your own, your Icelandic horse and Hóll stables will guarantee you have an unforgettable riding experience.

Welcome to Hóll!
