Enjoy the magic of horse-drawn sleigh rides through winter wonderland!
Picture this: horse-drawn sleigh and unobscured views of the Tetons all the while elk herd numbering in the thousands right before your eyes. It's all possible with the National Elk Refuge Sleigh Ride Program. With a record number of visitors last season, the sleigh ride at the National Elk refuge is one of the most popular educational programs offered. Elk refuge sleigh rides are extremely accessible and fun for the whole family. You can even book a private sleigh for friends and family.
National Elk Refuge Sleigh Rides begin on Saturday, December 14 and are scheduled to run through early April.
The sleigh rides last approximately one hour, and accommodations for visitors with disabilities are available.
During the season, the sleigh rides typically operate from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include all weekends and holidays except for Christmas Day.
Steps to plan your adventure
Purchase tickets at the Jackson Hole Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center located on 532 North Cache Street.
There are big blankets on the sleighs, but still dress warmly with winter coat, hat, gloves and warm boots! The Elk Refuge is unobscurred, open land, so it often feels significantly colder than weather reports due to wind.
Arrive at the visitor center 15 minutes before your ride for a no-stress experience.
