Sleigh Rides A Horse-Drawn Montana Adventure

A Horse-Drawn Montana Adventure

If dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh sounds like the stuff only dreams are made of, well, Western Montana’s Glacier Country is a winter dreamland of snow and splendor. After a day of skiing, skating, sledding or snowshoeing, take a horse-drawn carriage ride underneath a starry night sky with your favorite people (or special someone) and a warm cocoa or hot toddy.

Sled the best of the West in the unreal landscapes and premier small towns between Glacier and Yellowstone national parks. Plan ahead, play it safe and tread lightly.

How to Dress

The most basic rule is: it's winter and you'll be outside, so dress to stay warm. If you have ski clothes, wear them. Remember, since you won't be exerting yourself physically, you'll get cold faster. Wear the warmest boots you have, as your feet will be the first to feel the cold. Hats and gloves are a must. When you're zipping through brisk mountain air in a sleigh, the chill can set in quickly—especially on exposed skin.

Where to Catch a Sleigh

For a quick sleigh ride around the countryside, a happy daytime outing with friends and family, or a cozy evening out under the stars, you'll find that Montana's sleigh ride companies can accommodate. At some of our ski resorts, you can arrange sleigh rides near the mountain. Or if you're staying at a guest ranch or lodge, chances are, sleigh rides are available on their list of winter activities.

Many travelers to Montana wisely plan their trips to include both of our national parks: Glacier and Yellowstone. To help make the most of your time, we’ve put together several road-trip itineraries that offer authentic park-to-park experiences, including sleigh rides. For inspiration, visit Glaciers to Geysers.
