Explore the border on horseback in Jämtland

Discover the birch forests and grassy meadows of northern Jämtland.

Guides of sweden is a great resource but as yet there are no recommendations for Norrbotten or lappland. We have found http://www.lapland-sweden.com/ and http://www.laplandtours.se/ to be a great help for these two far northern wilderness areas.
