Day trips

To participate on our day trips, you have to be able to control your horse in walk, trot and canter. Where we ride will depend on the weather conditions. On sunny days we often ride to "DÝrjuvet" canyon and the waterfall. You can expect a spectacular view to the bottom of the 100 metres drop. We ride in the wild reindeers area, and if we are lucky, we might find tracks from the reindeers! We have day trips that go to some of the local summer farms as well. On these trips we ride over mountain tops and through quiet birch forests. All the trips are mostly in walk, but there will be serveral places where we can trot and canter.

Also the youngest can ride at Venabu. We arrange small rounds for children every day. These trips are 15 or 30 minutes long, and each child gets a horse and a guide. We walk on a narrow path through the "Fairytale forest", a quiet birch forest, so also the youngest gets a nature experience.
No age limit, but parents have to help when children under 3 years are going to ride.
