Fatbike Hike on the Snow

In the spring, the sun makes snow so hard that you can ride a bike on it. For a wide tired fatbike, conditions like these are a dream come true. Our fatbike hike takes us across the snow covered wilderness either on crusted snow or following a frozen snowmobile trail, depending on snow conditions. In any case, we can enjoy the endless peace and silence of the wilderness. We will spend a night in a wilderness cabin where you can enjoy a hot sauna. If the sun warms the snow too much and makes it too soft to ride during the daytime, we will ride in the evenings and early mornings.

Feel the Horse

When you arrive at Lucky Ranch, we'll introduce you to our horses. After saddling up in the stable, we'll move to the round pen and let the horse free. You'll learn how to communicate with the horse as you would in a wild herd. Then we do some exercises that keep the horse flexible and in balance. Once you feel comfortable, it's time to get in the saddle. Our Quarterhorse Roy and Appalosa Oliver are trained Western Horses, and they will teach you how to ride Western Style. Afterwards we will enjoy a hot beverage by the open fire and talk about your experience.

Bothnian Bay National Park

The wide and open waters of the Bothnian Bay invite boats with open arms. Take a break at a fishing hut and admire the sea through the window, just like a fisherman. The plinths and drying racks for fishing nets are signs of life from the past, on the rugged islands in the middle of this northern sea. During the winter, the Arctic Sea and packed ice fascinate tourists. For recreational fishermen, the sea provides clean waters, abundant with fish all year round. The Kalajoki Visitor Centre by the Kalajoki Sand Dunes is the number one destination for visitors to the Bothnian Bay.
