Fjellrittet

Fjellrittet is a small family business owned by Torgeir Svalesen – together with his children Jo, Ole and Tor. Astrid Lange, Knut Aasveen and Terje Bråten are members of the crew. 

We are actively working with the quality of control in the tourist-orientated horse businesses. We have been developing "Bransjestandard Hest (horse industry standard) together with Norsk Hestesenter and we are approved in this standard.

Our horses are mostly "lettdøl" horses (a Norwegian breed), Icelandic horses, Welsh Cobs and several other breeds. Horses are our life, and we would love to show you the fantastic Norwegian nature by horseback or sleigh, on one of our trails.

Torgeir is responsible for the practical logistics of the trails. He is a trained agronomist, and educated as a farrier and driving instructor 2. He has completed training courses such as "activity leader in tourism" and several advanced first-aid training courses. He speaks both English and German.
