Sleigh Rides in Stowe
New England has some of the most romantic and scenic rides, and Gentle Giants Sleigh Rides and Carriage Rides takes full advantage of that for guests. They start by heading over a snow-covered bridge and open brook, then pass through a wooded trail deep into the woods. The sleigh is enchanting, and the sound of the horse and bells make it feel like Christmas time is here.
When Can You Go on a Ride?
Rides are offered seven days per week, and they are open year-round – especially in the winter. As long as the weather is safe for riding, you can venture out any time after 11:00 am and before 3:30 pm. They also have early evening rides that start at 4:00 pm and move on until sunset.
