Step into a time machine masquerading as a bright red Santa Sleigh and be prepared to experience a magical horse drawn sleigh ride back to an 1860’s mining camp where hearty mountain food is served up with a healthy dose of family dinner theater!
Nordic Sleigh Rides has offered quality fun for the family since 1988 and we pride ourselves on providing great customer service complete with personal attention from the owner Al and the best value for adventure and entertainment in the West. A night with Nordic Sleigh is perfect for families, corporate retreats, groups, receptions, and private parties—tell us what you need and we’ll customize the activities just for you.
The Nordic Sleigh Rides adventure starts with everyone snugly tucked under blankets in the red Santa Sleigh then two majestic horses pull the sleigh through a magical winter wonderland near beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado. The sleigh ride ends at an 1860’s mining camp dining hall filled with lamp light, mouth-watering aromas and heat blasting out of two wood burning stoves. Everywhere you look there are historic artifacts and one of the stoves is practically groaning under the weight of all the perfectly hand-made apples pies, hearty beans, golden corn on the cob, heavenly hot chocolate and more. People come back year after year just for the apple pie but don’t ask Al for the recipe ‘cuz he won’t tell! Who will entertain? Will it be the Mountain Man telling tall tales of trapping, hunting and mountain women? Or will it be the Unsinkable Molly Brown bringing her wholly unique story to life? Or maybe it will be the delightful Dance Hall Girl playfully weaving stories of miners, Breckenridge as it really was and life in a saloon. No matter who it is, the laughs are many and kids adore the characters as much if not more than the adults!
Nordic Sleigh Rides also offers other options for enjoying the incredible Breckenridge scenery while being pulled by our majestic horses. We offer a romantic two-person, one-horse open sleigh ride that is sure to be a memorable occasion for you and your loved one. And for those not interested in dinner and a show, we also offer a Scenic Sleigh Ride guided by one of our entertaining drivers.
No matter where you come from or which sleigh ride you go on, Nordic Sleigh Rides takes the time to get to know you and become the best part of your Colorado vacation story.
