    Couldn’t have been better!!
    We had a really great time with Maria and her horses. The trail was beautiful and so were her horses. They were really calm and well behaved which made it perfect for beginners too. Maria was really friendly and explained everything to us before the trip. We had a really amazing experience and would always return again.

    Great horseback riding tour of Finnish Lapland
    Kindly received I received a good explanation of the course. You can help to make the beautiful horses ready to ride. The lady guided us through the beautiful landscape that was now bursting with autumn colors. Highly recommended. There is an adapted route for every level of horse rider. Nice experience!

    Riding in beautiful Lappish forest
    The group is suitably small and the level was exactly what was promised, i.e. there were no beginners among the experienced riders. The group leader, Maria, is friendly and knows her stuff. The terrain is beautiful Lapland forest scenery with nice trails to ride on. The tour is said to take two hours, including preparation, but for us the only downside was that we only rode for just over an hour.

    Just great
    a small, very lovingly maintained horse ranch. We really enjoyed the 2 hour ride, which was led very professionally by Marja! It was one of the absolute highlights during our time in Lappand! Many many thanks!!!!

    A wonderful experience!
    This ride was absolutely perfect. We rode through the snow-covered forest at a pace that suited my riding ability. We walked, trotted, and cantered. My horse was beautiful, energetic, but still responsive and well-behaved. Maria was a fantastic guide! She checked that I was comfortable and happy at all times. I highly recommend Polaris Point Horses!

    Wonderful snowy woodland trek
    Absolutely loved my trek through the beautiful snowy woodland. I did the advanced rider trek & got to canter 3/4 times which was fabulous. I felt totally confident with our instructor, the owner, who is so lovely & very knowledgeable. I would 100% recommend this ride & would definitely go again if I’m ever back in Saariselka. I took a cab to the riding centre from Saariselka which at the time of writing was 30 euros each way.

    Such a serene experience
    It was my first time on a horse, and it was fantastic. Vertii is the best, he is such a smart sweet boy and made the drive effortless. The route through the forest was beautiful and serene. The instructions are clear and simple. It was a great experience overall and I would recommend it to everyone :)

I've been to many stables in Finland but none have been as magical as Polaris Point Horses. I have decent experience with horses, and I visited the stable with someone who had never been even close to a horse before. We were warmly welcomed, and at first we got introduced to the finnhorses we'd be riding with, and both parties had a chance to get to know each other. We both felt really secure from the minute we arrived, and stable owner Maria was really patient in explaining how to ride safely. The ride itself was also just magical, we walked on the forest paths while listening to huskies howling in the distance and chatted about various topics on the way.

I can't even explain how good this experience was, and I highly recommend Polaris Point Horses to everyone who's staying in Saariselkä. The owner Maria is really friendly, horses are very healthy and happy, and overall I support what they do. This is a place I will visit again if I some day have the chance to do so!

Thank you so much for your feedback. Glad to hear you enjoyed the ride, and our lovely neighbors (the huskies) serenade!

I booked a private sleigh ride for my family and a 2 hour experienced rider hack for myself. Both were superb - great horses, lovely countryside and a very knowledgeable guide, able to talk about specifically equestrian issues ( the harness, tack, etc) as well as discuss the nature, history and current issues concerning Lapland and Finland. will be back !

One first timer and one experienced rider, a very pleasant experience for both! We got a good training on how to ride the horse, and went on a beautiful trail through the snowy woods in the Tunturi. Then we got some hot glögi and gingerbreads after the ride. Absolutely lovely experience, would recommend for anyone and everyone!

Amazing scenery and experience. Horses are really happy and aren’t stressed at all. This makes the experience even better. I recommend 100% The owner makes sure you feel wellcomed and loves animals you can tell. Would repeat without doubt. You can tell the owner wants to take care of the horses and make sure they feel comfortable at all times.

We had no previous horse riding experience at all, but Maria made sure we were very comfortable with and on the horses. Just a great feeling to quickly feel a rapport with your horse and have it guide you trough its environment, the beautiful snowy forest. Hihgly recommended!
