We enjoy a tasty breakfast in the camp and start the day in no hurry. During this day you explore and enjoy the local wilderness spotting interesting places in the nature. If weather allowes, we  climb on horseback on the top of a fell to enjoy the view. Most of the day we ride in a terrain with no paths to show you the way, so it is impossible to give a precise number of kilometers. A real adventure!

We’ll enjoy filling and delicious lunch in the nature after finding a spot of our liking. We stay overnight by a river and get to try a real camp life “luxury” – a tent-sauna! If you dare, feel free to dip in the cold river Tolos!

You can also try to swim in an outdoor swim pit if you like. The sauna has A-licence so you can buy your beverages on site. After the sauna, we will enjoy a delicious, high quality three-course dinner provided locally.

This night we will sleep indoors in the tavern with our bellies full.


We start the ride after breakfast and stop pretty soon for a coffee in Rainbow’s End gold digging site. Let’s enjoy the coffee while listening to the history of the local gold digging.
