Take a ride on a horse and cart
Treat your family and friends to an unforgettable horse and cart ride along winding gravel roads in typical Småland landscape..
The tour passes through deep spruce forests, rolling meadows and fields that were once cleared by hand, stone by stone, and where horses once worked all year round alongside the people of the farm. Today, the cart is pulled by magnificent Ardennes horses, which otherwise work on the farms here in the village. There is room for 8 adults on the cart and we are happy to provide a picnic hamper for the journey.
To book a horse-drawn cart, contact the coachman Andreas Damberg on +46(0) 73-995 90 67 or at email@example.com.
Price: SEK 625/hour; every additional hour costs SEK 500*
If you would like to book a picnic hamper to bring for the ride, contact us at Åsen on +46(0) 36-830 55 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Applies during peak season when the horses are grazing in the village pastures. At other times of the year, please contact Andreas for a quote.
