Nordic Sleigh Rides
This sleigh ride dinner and show is a unique Breckenridge experience beginning with a sleigh ride on custom built Santa sleighs pulled by Belgian draft horses. Upon your arrivial at a recreated 1860's mining camp, you'll enjoy a hearty supper and then the highlight of the evening--a lively show (several are offered) that is highly audience interactive and family oriented.
We had a simply wonderful time last for this old-fashioned activity. As others have said, the sleigh ride was wonderful. It's a 25 minute ride through dark woods on a path. Smaller children MIGHT be initially concerned about how dark it is on the ride, but we didn't hear any concerns among the 60 adults and children that were in our group (20 per sled) last night. Most of the folks, including my family, was simply in awe at the heavens which were so clear. Milky way, constellations, planets, and no moon or lights to interfere with the stargazing. Breathtaking!!
When we returned to the warm cabin, we took our places with the pre-assigned seating and immediately have carafes of hot chocolate to warm us up (or beer/wine for those who wanted to BYOB which is allowed).
The entertainment for our group was a young woman who played the role of the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" and told us about her life in about 20 min. She did an outstanding job in her one-act drama as she interacted with the audience. My wife and I found it entertaining and informative, as did our small children (10 and 8 yrs). After the entertainment, we had a scrumptious dinner of steak, beans and corn on the cob, followed by freshly made apple pie. Yum!!!
Total cost was about $295 for the 4 of us (adults $83 or so and children $63 or so) but that also included bus transportation to and from where we were staying in Breckenridge. It's about a 30 minute drive.
Do not miss this -- they sell out quickly!!!
Fortunately, I reserved 3 weeks in advance and it was definitely the highlight of our wonderful week long vacation here in Breckenridge!
Blankets, snow and and your special someone sleighing in the woods was the best. The special treat was Dixie Diamond Dance Hall Girl entertainment and a history of Breckenridge. Evening was topped with Steak or Chicken cooked to perfection with all th egoodies including a great apple pie. It's a great family time. For an extra cost you get a ride from your hotel. What a deal! Can't wait to do it again.
OLD FASHIONED SANTA SLEIGH PULLED BY HORSES. 20 MINUTE RIDE THROUGH THE SNOW/WOODS AND RETURN TO A RUSTIC CABIN WITH ENTERTAINMENT (WHICH WAS A LITTLE LONG IN MY OPINION) AND EITHER, STEAK, CHICKEN, OR VEG.LASAGNA. THE FOOD WAS GOOD. I WOULD RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE - FAMILIES OR COUPLES. FUN FOR KIDS TOO.
