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.
