About Fjällhästen AB (Ltd)
In 1986 Osvald changed his motorbike used for reindeer herding for an Icelandic horse. His body had suffered from the tough driving on the mountain. Now it was time to try a new and for the body more merciful way of making his way across the mountain. The Icelandic horse Grani was the first to come to Ammarnäs to assist Osvald with the reindeer herding. But keeping up with the motorbikes was tough. However an interest among visitors to Ammarnäs to join Osvald and Grani on mountain tours had aroused.
The concept of the company Fjällhästen is born: to let guests take part of the mountain and Sámi culture with Icelandic horses as travelling companions. In 1987 the first tours depart into the Nature Reserve of the Vindel Mountains and the Jonsson family’s old Sámi lands.
Today the company consists of 10 Icelandic horses and two guides: Osvald Jonsson and Malin Johansson.
Fjällhästen offers both shorter horseback riding tours and weeklong expeditions through Lapland’s magnificent mountain world.
