Hotel and riding holidays in the fabulous Dovrefjell National Park. Icelandic horse trekking over the high plateau, up peaks, across rivers and along pleasant trails through beechwoods.

Hjerkinn Fjellridning riding center is located at Hjerkinn Fjellstue, a mountain lodge 1000 meters above sea level. You ride in terrain ranging from birch woods and Norway’s highest-growing pine forests to bare mountainsides.

We use Icelandic horses which are reliable, steady and very well trained. Our trips accomodate both beginners and experienced riders, children and adults. The age limit for attending a riding trip is 12 years alone and 10 years with a parent.

Before we start riding, we make sure that everyone is familiar with their horse by grooming and saddeling it. A short grooming and riding lesson will be given. During the trip we divide the riders into groups based on experience in riding and wish for speed. If you would like, you will get the opportunity to try both ambling gait, trot and canter. You can book a day trip or stay for several days, with accomodation in the hotel.

We are the only place in the world that offers musk ox safari on horseback! This trip takes place every Saturday and is for people with some experience in riding.

Since we use Icelandic horses, which are somewhat small in size, the maximum weight limit for attending a day trip is 95 kg.

Accommodation and full board at Hjerkinn Fjellstue in hotel rooms with bed linen and towels, as well as a private bathroom with shower and wc, TV, and free wifi.
