Winter is often a hard time of year to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. We are trying to do more and more in the winter months to get outside as a family and enjoy activities in the cold.
While it is sometimes too cold to hit the slopes or skate outdoors, a sleigh ride, bundled up under a blanket with a thermos of hot chocolate could the perfect family outing. We have put together a list of Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides available to book in New Brunswick.
As always, if you know of any more, we would love to add them to the list. Comment below or send us a message to let us know.
