HORSE SLEIGH RIDES winter 2019/2020

Join us on a traditional Norwegian experience! We arrange horse sleigh rides multiple days a week throughout winter. We can also arrange separate trips for groups of minimum 5 people.

Enjoy the vast beauty of the mountains together with our lovely Dole horses. Horse sleigh rides (“Kanefart” in Norwegian) boast a long and proud tradition in Norway. Historically, horses decorated with jingle bells have pulled sleighs fitted with burning torches through the snow for grand events such as winter weddings, New Years and Christmas celebrations, or for local balls and festive events. In addition, sleigh-pulling horses were instrumental to the survival of small, remote towns, who had no other means of accessing supplies. The tradition has flourished in the Norwegian tourist industry, rejuvenating appreciation for the horse’s role in modern civilisation.

Our horses will take you through the forest, where you will experience the quietness of the mountains in winter. The only sounds you will hear are hooves against soft snow, the horse’s snorting and the jingle bells ringing in time to the rhythm of the horse’s strides. The trips last for a short hour, ending with a glass of hot mulled wine inside our cosy lavvu.

Price 280,- per person, 150,- for children under 10 yrs. Free for children under three years sitting on their parent’s lap


Venabustallen arranges carriage rides of various lengths in summer and autumn.

A carriage ride is a great activity for larger groups of various ages. Our carriage can fit 8 adults led by two horses. We are happy to tailor a ride according to the wishes of your group! Some days we arrange rides where smaller groups and families can join. Please contact us if you are interested in our carriage rides!
