Where to Take a Sleigh Ride in NH

Leave modern life behind and take a old-fashioned sleigh ride through the beautiful New Hampshire countryside

Sleigh rides are offered at hotels, inns, farms and stables throughout the state from the heart of the White Mountains to the Lakes and Monadnock Regions. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway at a cozy bed and breakfast or want to take the whole family out for the day, there’s a sleigh ride waiting for you! Cozy up underneath warm blankets, drink hot chocolate with the kids or sip champagne with that special someone, and enjoy a tour through the sparkling winter landscape as bells jingle all the way.

Note: Sleigh rides generally begin in January, but check each individual inn, hotel, farm or stables for an exact start date as it can depend on snow and other weather conditions. You should always call or check the website before you go to make sure lack of snow or inclement weather haven’t canceled rides. Many places offer private rides that can be scheduled by calling the provided phone number. Don’t forget to abide by each place’s COVID-19 rules and regulations!
