Experience of a lifetime
Aug 2020
I participated on Kievarin kierros overnight tour and had an absolute blast. The horses were great, so kind and calm and trustworthy carrying us through the mountains, forests and rivers. Our host Maria was delightful and very helpful - she took great care of us on horseback and in camp. We dined and stayed the night in Laanilan Kievari. Food was delicious and accomodation in a small hut very cozy - not to forget the sauna after a long day on horseback.

We rode mostly off-trail and the tour was for experienced riders, challenging as mentioned on the website. Definitely not for beginners, but I'm sure Maria like the pro that she is can whip up great tours for any kind of visitors.

The scenery in the beginning of August was breathtaking and it was truly amazing to experience it on a Finnhorse.

Over night summer tour with finish horses
Aug 2020 • Friends
We did Kievarin kierros over night tour. It was mind blowing!!!! The landscape was awesome, the horses were so sure footed and kind. The guide was also very professional, friendly and nice. The trail wasn't the easiest one, but the horses were professional and did good job. We went over many hills and shallow rivers and creeks, also in the forrest. Most of the time off trails. That was something you can't experience in most places (at least not safely).

The food in Laanilan kievari was delicious and the staff was nice.

On the second day we stoped by rainbow's end gold miners. That was also super interesting. The weather was optimal, not too warm and no rain.

All in all defenately one of my best horse back riding holidays.

Winter Landschaft Ausritt / Trail ride in snow white magic
Mar 2020
4 experienced riders from age 14 to 66 had a wonderful ride with Maria. She gave us a short introduction and explained the personalities of each horse. The fin-horses are great. So used to the cold and so shure footed in the 1 meter snow in beginning of march. All of us are advanced rider - so we could trott and galopp as well. The very special and romantic paths with the gorgious winter sun were unique. Maria is a safe trail boss and knows a lot about the animals and tracks. She feels you very welcome. If you love nature and horses - riding or with sledge - go to Maria and her Polaris point Horses!

An amazing sleigh ride
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had the most wonderful experience this afternoon - the sleigh ride through the silent forest was just magical. Maria was so interesting and friendly and nothing was too much trouble - the horses are friendly and so strong. We will be returning to this area next year and this will be the first thing on our list to do again.

Perfect trip for families
Jan 2020 • Family
A must do activity if you are visiting Saariselkä. Maria was so lovely and informative on our sleigh ride. And Visa was the most beautiful Finnhorse. We were the only family on the sleigh and Maria gave us lots of information about the area and living in Finland. We were taken through the magical snow covered trees to a secluded area for our picnic. We warmed sausages on the fire, drank tea and ate cake surrounded by snow. We were not rushed and the whole trip was relaxing. Once back to the lodge Maria called a taxi for us and was happy to chat and show us the other horse in the yard while we waited. We will take these memories of the snow covered woods with us forever. Highly recommend this trip.

Confessions of a saddle virgin
Oct 2019 • Friends
I confess to have been invited, or rather persuaded, by my host and owner Maria to join the trail-riding trip. Other than that, I have no affiliation with Polaris Point Horses. I have not sat in a saddle before, except for donkey riding in elementary school. Actually, it never crossed my mind as something I wanted to do. Boy, was I wrong. The horses were graceful and gorgeous. I loved everything about them, their smell, their shiny coats, warm bodies and soft noses. My horse’s name was Visa. He was large, strong and gentle. Neither taking advantage of my clumsiness, nor offence in my hasty commands. Just walking in a steady pace, leaving me to enjoy the magnificent landscape. I felt euphoric riding into the taiga, breathing the crisp clean air and imagining myself exploring uncharted territories. We rode for a good two hours, before returning to the lake in the valley and to the stables. We weren’t in a rush, so I had some time to give my new friend a good brush. After I was finished, Visa happily rejoined his herd in the pasture. I was left heartbroken, but promised myself to plan for a new adventure soon. Perhaps an overnight excursion?

Wonderful adventure

The horses are docile and friendly and the sceneries are magnificent. Hostess Maria is great and really knows her way in the wilderness. Trails are suitable for beginners and experienced riders alike. Highly recommended.
