Working class heroes

Get to know our most faithful servants, three of the Norwegian horse breeds:

Fjord horse
Norway is known for its many fjords and mountains along the west coast. It is believed that the Fjord horse was domesticated in this steep landscape as long as 4,000 years ago. It is one the world’s oldest horse breeds, and it is probably linked to the ancient Asian wild horse.

In Northern Norway the main component of the landscape is mountains. This is the region of the Nordlandshest breed, which has the same general features and body shape as the Fjord horse, but is noticeably smaller. Today, the official name of the breed is both Nordlandshest and Lyngshest.

Sustainability in Norway

Take only pictures, keep only memories

Norway is a country of outstanding natural beauty. Preserving this landscape, its communities, and the way of life, is essential for locals and visitors alike.

Norwegian philosophy is very much that conservation is everyone’s responsibility.

The locals try to leave as small a footprint as possible. Leave it as you would like to find it is the mantra, regardless of where you are.

It is all about the quality of life. Not only now, but for the time to come as well.
