Sleigh Rides

There’s nothing more nostalgic in wintertime than a quintessential New Hampshire sleigh ride. From the mountains, to down along our lakes, cozied up passengers can enjoy the long-standing tradition of jingling bells inside a private horse-drawn sleigh ride for two. If you’re looking to add more fun winter activities to your winter vacation, New Hampshire also offers 20-passenger logging sleds so you can pile the whole gang in and sip on hot chocolate while taking in the glittery wintery scene! Sleigh rides are usually seasonal, so for more information, contact these New Hampshire sleigh-ride providers for pricing, details, and to make reservations.
