Mesna Activities & Accommodation Our Activities: We are specialized in Icelandic Horseback Riding. This means fast-paced tours of varied terrain - a great way to experience the Norwegian nature. Some of our customers say that we have Europe’s best riding area – a statement we totally agree with. We offer trips for both beginners and advanced riders and place great emphasis on finding a horse that fits your skills. In addition to riding, we can also offer dog sledding, ice bathing, snowtubes, archery, river kayaking, banqueting rooms and much more.Our Accommodation: Mesna Accommodation is located only a few hundred meters from the Riding centre. This is the perfect place to relax after a busy day! Please read more about Mesna Accommodation on it´s separate page here on Tripadvisor. Our Location: Mesna is surrounded by beautiful Norwegian wilderness. By car, it takes 25 minutes to get to Lillehammer (the Olympic City of 1994) and 15 minutes to Sjusjøen - Norway's mecca for winter sports. To get a better idea of our location, we would recommend you to look up our address, ”Sørmessenvegen 723 Mesnali”, in google maps.

A group of 13 guys stayed here for a weekend in October. We went horseback riding in the woods, and tried the bow & arrow, both great activities. The owners and staff at Mesna were very friendly and professional, and made our stay absolutely terrific.

I´ve been riding for years, and my friends had never ridden before; all six of us had an absolutely amazing riding experience! The owners, Camilla and Kristoffer were so welcoming and cheerful, they gave us instructions before we were handed a suitable Icelandic horse based on our experiences (or, -lack of- :) ). Our ride went on for 2 hours,... More

After 40 years of relatively active riding different types of horses: This is unique. First:The Islandhorse is the most perfect horse for riding and experience nature. Nice tempered, highly willing, sturdy and at the same time; a Forest-Ferrari! Or a Mountain-Maserati....? :) But even more important; I think Mesna Ride-og Aktivitetssenter is highly proffesional when it comes to horseback-riding in... More

This was my first time riding and i really learned a lot and always felt safe in the hands of the very friendly staff. We did a 2hr ride for around 500 NOK and was very happy with it. The landscape is varied and the horses seems very well trained and safe. I could not have asked for a better... More
