The Elk Refuge Sleigh Ride is now OPEN for the winter 2020/2021 season! Here are 5 reasons why you should go check it out!
1. It has very high ratings on Google!
I don’t know about you, but we always check the reviews before we go anywhere, and the Elk Refuge Sleigh Ride has an average of 4.8 stars on Google out of the 82 folks who have left a review. That’s pretty impressive. If that many people have loved it, I’m sure you will too:)
2. You Will Get Up Close and Personal with the Elk!
This is an experience you will never forget! Elk are beautiful, large, majestic animals that are magical to see up close! Click on this National Geographic link to learn more about these amazing animals. (For example, some elk have antlers that are 4 feet tall, which makes the elk about 9 feet tall in total!)
3. It’s a fun thing to do during COVID-19
This has been a crazy year and we’ve all been a bit more cooped up than we’d like. But, this is a great adventure because it’s outside, and it’s in a small group. Hopefully everyone will be wearing a face covering, and it should be a fairly low risk and fun winter activity! (Read here to see the precautions they are taking during this time.)
4. It’s a great, screen-free family activity!
This is the perfect thing to go do with your family. You can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, see the elk (and possibly other animals too), and be together. These are the kinds of activities that make you feel alive and remind you about the importance of nature and the beauty of the world around you. And…no screens are needed (unless you want to take a picture, of course!). You can take a break from watching other people live their lives and you can go live your own!
5. It’s only 3 minutes away from Flat Creek Inn!
If you are already staying here, then this is the perfect activity to go do because it’s so close! We even have a Stay and Sleigh Special going on where you can get a really sweet deal! Check it out here. (The Elk Refuge is right across the street from the Flat Creek Inn, you can watch the live web cam right now and see if you can find any elk!)
