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.

Thank you for your response. It is unfortunate for the traffic & parking problems Lake Tahoe is experiencing. The city of South Lake Tahoe has plans for improvements. We keep being told the improvements are in the works... But like all things it takes time....More

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.
