LofotHest AS was established in 2011 and was a combination of the dream of Lofoten and the dream of horses. Hence the name LofotHest (LofotHorse).
As pioneers in offering horseback riding in Lofoten, and with over 30 years experience with horses, Runa has created an oasis in Rolvsfjord, in the heart of Lofoten. She offer the original "Lofoten by Horseback", which was the first organized mountain rides with Icelandic horses in Lofoten. As well as the standard horse riding tours, she also offer tailor made experiences based on desires and skills of the guests.
In addition to riding in the mountains, she can offer riding lessons as a Centered Riding instructor, as well as various ground work activities for both kids and grown-ups, and our very own recreation program for those in search of flow. Runa is a certified Equine Specialist through EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Assosiation) and as a student of Norsk Gestaltinstitutt (NGI), her approach is based on the gestalt methodology.
