Overview
More
The Borges Sleigh and Carriage Rides is still a family operated business at the same location in South Lake Tahoe for over 42 years. Over the years, other locations have been used such as Squaw Creek & Northstar Resorts. Our 1 hour or 30 minute narrated sleigh ride travels along the Pony Express Trail then over the meadow and though the woods...to a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe. A picnic area, snow play area & pony rides are some of the addition activities. Hot drinks & souvenirs are also available.

We enjoyed a horse carriage ride in July. The horses and carriages are very nice. The staff is good. During the summer, the horse carriages are located between Harrahs Casino and the Lake Tahoe Hotel Resort. The carriage driver is good too.
