I was so fortunate to take this tour just after a heavy snow. The ride out to the fields over fresh snow was amazing. For the best experience, sit in the back of the sleigh. You can see better and be closer to the elk.

We did not have the wonderful experience previous reviewers shared. We received a $200 gift card for Christmas. I appreciate that in an attempt to work within Covid restrictions, Idaho Sleighrides is only scheduling private groups. Our $200 gift card would pay for up to 4 people, who knew each other, for a 45 minute ride. Where things became difficult was on Jan 18 when I tried to make reservations. There were no spots available. I was told they were fully booked for January and it was an unknown, due to weather, whether they would be able to book into February. I was told there were several names on a waitlist ahead of me and we would probably have to save the gift card and book next winter. I asked if they had possibly sold more gift cards than they had capacity to fulfill, said that we may not be in Idaho next year and requested a refund to the person who purchased our gift card. At this point the owner was borderline rude with me, told me no and later hung up on me. On Sunday I received a more pleasant call from the owner stating he had a cancelation and we could book that Tues @ 12:30. I am not sure what happened to all the names ahead of us on the waitlist, but I appreciated that he had called with the offer. The sleigh ride itself was disappointing. The owner was our driver and was indifferent, almost sullen in his interactions with us. He was also dealing with sub-optimal snow conditions as this is a low snow year. His sleigh was in great shape, comfortable and the horses gorgeous. Our scenic 45 minute sleigh ride turned into a 30 minute ride, an approximately 1.5 miles loop to the field behind their business to feed the elk. We tried to engage him in conversation during the ride and after. I asked about ideas for family summer rides, but he showed no interested in speaking with us. There was no explanation for our receiving a 30 minute not 45 minute ride. I am sorry to leave a negative review. But when the business prompted me to leave a review, I decided to. Small and seasonal businesses are especially hard hit during Covid. I cannot recommend working with Idaho Sleighrides. I understand weather is not under his control, and I am sorry for him that he will probably have an abbreviated season. I would suggest he be more clear with gift cards that the season frequently ends in early February and to not expect a refund if he is unable to provide the pre-paid service. My recommendation is if you want beautiful, scenic views of Idaho, just keep driving up the Banks to Lowman Road and you will be astounded by the sights. $200 for a 30 minute ride with an unhappy driver is not a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Idaho Sleigh Rides is an experience not to miss. We've taken our family on the sleigh ride 3 times over the past 5 years. Each time has been a huge success! The customer service is top notch. They folks that run the show are super nice and personable. We have been fortunate to see and feed a large herd of elk each time. It's a magical experience I would highly recommend. Suitable for all ages.
