Winter is truly a magical time of year. There are twinkling Christmas lights strung up on every street, fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky, and tons of fun outdoor activities to take part in! There's honestly no reason to be bored during the wintertime and especially not during the holidays when there are so many adorable, romantic adventures to go on.
One of the most romantic and wintry adventures that every Canadian should experience once in their life is a horse-drawn sleigh ride through a literal winter wonderland. At Back Of Beyond Equine Centre, you can go on a romantic escapade all year round.
Back of Beyond Equine Centre is located in the gorgeous cottage country of Muskoka, Ontario, and is just a short 2.5-hour drive from Toronto. They have adorable sleigh-rides running all year long, but their winter ones are clearly the most scenic.
The adventure starts with a tour of the farm and the opportunity to brush the horses before the journey begins. Then, the magical ride through private woodland trails begins, where you'll get to experience a real winter wonderland through the most romantic mode of transportation.
They have three different sized sleighs to choose from: a small one that fits four people, a family one that fits seven, and a larger kind that fits 12. They'll take you through the snow-covered trails and then, once you're done, you can enjoy a warm hot chocolate on the farm!
The experience costs $125 for two people, and any additional person has to pay $25. Children under four ride for free, though! All of this is weather-dependent and the farm owners decide whether conditions are right on a day-to-day basis, so make sure you check the weather before you book.
