A unique winter activity I highly recommend adding to your Tahoe vacation is a “one-horse open sleigh” ride with Borges Sleigh Rides. The Borges family has been offering winter sleigh rides and summer hay and carriage rides for three decades in South Lake Tahoe. Located near the north entrance of the MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa (in the meadow of the old Friday’s Station), the sleigh rides take you through beautiful open meadows and forest, and the driver will add to the experience by pointing out local landmarks along the way. Make sure to bring your camera as the driver will also take a picture of you and your group with Lake Tahoe as your backdrop! The rides range from 30 minutes to 1 hour and the antique European sleighs can seat 2 passengers for an intimate ride up to a festive 20 passengers. Driven by large, Belgian horses, you will really get the feeling of being whisked away to a winter wonderland. And don’t worry about the cold, they provide warm blankets for snuggling. They also offer dinner sleigh rides at sunset for a more romantic experience.
The sleigh rides are offered from 10:00am until dusk, weather permitting.
