You won't need to travel to the North Pole for a sleigh ride this Christmas because one Ishpeming business offers rides to the community.
The Sleigh man's property is where people can come to enjoy 33 acres of land and a pond while riding along a Norwegian Fjord horse drawn sleigh. The sleigh ride takes patrons through a trail of snow-covered hardwood and evergreen trees that make up a picturesque scenery.
In addition to a sleigh ride, the property offers a toboggan hill ride, bonfire and private bobsled ride.
The whole experience is something special that people of all ages can enjoy.
"The kids laughing in back, grandma, she's always the best as far as she's just thrilled to come here in the first place. Once it starts taking place, everybody's laughing. It's a family thing, that's what really makes it special," says owner, William Richards.
Guests must make reservations for the sleigh ride by calling (906) 360 0212 or email UPsleighman@gmail.com.
Book a three hour party for $500. Party accommodates 20 to 30 partygoers.
Individual rides: Hourly rate $150, sleigh accommodates 6 riders, including driver.
