Four fully trimmed horses pulling a candy-red sleigh through fresh fallen snow with the scenic Rocky Mountain Peaks in the background is a postcard-worthy scene, and you can be a part of that picture in Wyoming. From Jackson in the northwest to Cheyenne in the southeast, there are sleigh ride operators offering tours that will fit your itinerary — whether that means a romantic ride under the stars to a candlelit dinner, or a fun ride for the whole family to a rustic campfire with s’mores and cowboy music.
In wide-open Wyoming all you’ll hear is the peaceful sound of hooves crunching the snow, as you get an unforgettable tour of the untouched landscape. For a special wildlife experience, schedule a trip in the National Elk Refuge north of Jackson where you’ll see thousands of elk, bison, big horn sheep and maybe even bald eagles. Most sleigh rides operate between December and March.
