Private Tour: Lake Tahoe Sleigh Ride

Instead of horseback riding at Lake Tahoe, enjoy a similar experience in the winter months with a cozy sleigh ride. A sturdy horse pulls you across the snow, taking you along parts of the old Pony Express on a private antique European sleigh. As you go, a knowledgeable driver-guide points out landmarks and tells you about the history of the Lake Tahoe. 


  • Guided sleigh ride through majestic Lake Tahoe
  • Unique tour on old fashioned European sleigh
  • Free souvenir at historic Friday's station

What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Lake Tahoe Sleigh Ride

Lake Tahoe Sleigh Ride

Your private Lake Tahoe sleigh ride starts on the Nevada side of the state line, just across the border from California. Hop aboard your handmade sleigh, which varies in size depending on the number of people in your party; sleighs range from 2- to 20-seaters.  

Pile on the provided blankets and snuggle up with your friends or loved one for your 1-hour horse-drawn ride across the snowy terrain of southern Lake Tahoe. Your private driver-guide will tell you stories about Tahoe’s history and landmarks while you soak up the winter wonderland scenery. Feel free to sing holiday carols, if the mood strikes you, or just listen to the sound of the horse’s hooves on the ground.

You’ll travel along parts of the Pony Express trail and stop by Friday’s Station, a National Historic Landmark that was once a Pony Express inn.

Note: All rides are subject to change in the case of extreme weather conditions.

Perfect is the word to describe the sleigh ride experience. They don't just take you around the field - a lot goes into making it a very memorable jaunt.

I planned to go on this sleigh ride with my boyfriend who was not very excited about it. I eventually dragged him on the ride and to his surprise he had a good time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Lake Tahoe, the views were scenic and our horse was great to take pictures with. The only thing that would have made it better is if it was a private sleigh ride.
