A couple can enjoy a romantic ride for just two. Nestled comfortably in a mound of dry hay, listening to the clinking of the heel chains and runners on the snow, makes this a perfect way to spend some time together. A little stargazing in the still of an evening in the forest with the one you love? Yes please!

All rides are booked on the hour and are $180 taxes included.
