North Shore Winter Sleigh Rides
Take an old fashioned sleigh ride under the starry skies of the north woods! Sit back, snuggle under a quilt and experience the beauty of a winter night along lantern-lit trails. Caribou Highlands Lodge offers a Thursday night sleigh ride every winter week at Okontoe Sleigh Rides on the famous Gunflint Trail, north of Grand Marais.
Cap and Dan, the 2000-pound Belgians pull the sleigh through the woods on a 45-minute ride highlighted by a stop at the Kissin' Tree and completed with homemade cocoa at the hundred-year old log lodge. Wintry nights are gorgeous in the woods with snow-capped pines, big white flakes of snow softly falling or crystal clear nights with countless stars. Perhaps you will even catch the Northern Lights dancing across the sky!
