Sleigh Rides

Molly Johnson | 11/29/2018 | Government Camp, Other Outdoor Activities, Snow Play


Mt. Hood Territory in the winter is filled with epic snow sport adventures to be had on the mountain, but for many, a more laid back, cozy outing is the type of adventure they are interested in. Enter: sleigh rides!

During the holidays, treat yourself to a fabulous sleigh ride through the historic Village of Government Camp. Whether you bring the family or have a romantic getaway for two, its a truly magical experience. Belgian Horses guide you along, showcasing the holiday lights as sounds of horse hooves mix with jingle bells. Your senses will notice things that typically go unnoticed with the normal fast pace of life and you'll feel connected to the mountain, the snow and the community in a way you haven't before.  

Sleigh rides are offered by Mt. Hood Outfitters and welcome all ages. Reserve your ride time early as time slots fill up for the winter quickly. 

A relaxing adventure could be just what you needed. Rent one of the homey cabins or rooms around Government Camp, sit fireside telling stores, reading books and playing games. Then head to one of the nearby dining venues in Govy to nosh on some comfort food and hear tales from the locals. A welcome escape from the concrete jungle is calling your name to Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory.
