Sleigh riding since 1994

A pair of one-ton Belgian horses will pull you along lantern-lit trails for a 45-minute sleigh ride through the winter wonderland of Okontoe's property on the beautiful Gunflint Trail of northern Minnesota.

You'll finish your sleigh ride at the Patten Homestead, a hand-hewn log cabin built in 1907. We'll serve you homemade hot chocolate off the old-fashioned cookstove in candle and lantern light while you warm your nose and toes. Click here to see pictures.

We have three different sizes of sleighs to meet your needs: a deluxe sleigh for two passengers, a six or a twelve-passenger sleigh. We provide heavy quilts for all of our guests. Click here to see pictures and further description.

Okontoe is a smoke-free and alcohol-free environment.

We have had guests from across the nation and around the world make great memories on our sleigh rides... we offer a memorable experience for you, too!


"We couldn't have had a more amazing time on Chris' leave! Being able to experience such a magical tradition during the Christmas holiday will be something to be thankful for, for many years. This sleigh ride has made our time together so unique and special. We couldn't be more grateful for your family's generosity. Wishing everyone in your family a very Merry Christmas! -Kayla, MN (12-22-2011)
