The Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour in Jackson , NH is one of New Hampshire’s best holiday traditions! Of all the Christmas activities in New Hampshire , this annual event is one of our favorites, and one you should absolutely put on your list for the future.

If you like sweet treats, small mountain towns, and getting to know fellow New Hampshire visitors in an Austrian horse-drawn sleigh, you’re going to love this tour!

We at New Hampshire Way recently had the opportunity to join the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour in 2022. Here’s our experience and what to expect.

What is the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour?

The Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour is a sweet way to enjoy the picture-perfect town of Jackson , New Hampshire. This tour is a tradition in Jackson Village and has been going on for more than 20 years!

The tour takes you around the town in Austrian sleighs, stopping at different local inns and B&Bs for sweet treats made by local chocolatiers. The sleighs are pulled by gorgeous horses, and don’t worry if there isn’t deep snow — the sleighs will be on wheels in that case!

We began our tour at the Snowflake Inn, right in the heart of Jackson Village, and picked up our bag, jingle bell, and first chocolate treats, courtesy of the harder-to-reach-by-sleigh properties like the Christmas Farm Inn and Nestlenook Farm.

Two gorgeous brown and horses pulling a sleigh on wheels across a paved driveway.

Next we got situated in our sleigh, put our jingle bells around our neck, and set off on our tour! We traveled up and down Jackson Village, visiting several inns and businesses along the way.

At each stop, we rang our bells for chocolate and met a local innkeeper or business owner who delivered us chocolate treats, often telling us a few tidbits about their property’s history.

And the chocolate treats? They were fabulous! Sometimes we’d get soft melty chocolates, or chocolate minty fudge-like pieces, or chocolate pops in the shape of a Christmas tree. One of our favorites came from the Inn at Jackson — large homemade marshmallows topped with chocolate and sprinkles.

And there’s no pressure to eat it all at once — that’s what your bag’s for. Save some treats for later! Or don’t! It’s Christmas!

We finished our tour back at the Snowflake Inn and received a delicious chocolate mousse in a cup — with the option of one made with rum! Altogether, the tour took a little over an hour.

How to Get Tickets for the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour

The Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour takes place on weekends in late November through mid-December. In 2022 the first tours were the weekend before Thanksgiving; we will update this post when we have 2023 dates.

You can get tickets at any time of year when booking a stay or dining at one of the tour’s partner properties. That includes the Christmas Farm Inn and Spa, Eagle Mountain House & Gold Club, An Elegant Country Inn, the Inn at Jackson, the J-Town Deli & Country Store, Nestlenook Estate, the Snowflake Inn, the Wentworth, or the Wildcat Inn & Tavern.

Otherwise, tickets go on sale to the general public on November 1. You get tickets from the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce by calling 978-580-0905. (Have a group of eight or more? You can call to make a booking any time of year.)

Tickets are $35 if you’re staying at one of the properties, or $40 if you’re not.

We recommend buying as soon as they go on sale, as prime dates like the Saturday after Thanksgiving tend to sell out quickly.

Finally, is this event for kids? You can absolutely bring kids; just know that kids pay full-price as well. And when we attended, our group was something like 90% adults!

Where to Stay in Jackson, NH

One reason why we at New Hampshire Way love Jackson is because there are so many wonderful B&Bs! If you want to nestle down in a small town in the White Mountains , you can’t do better than Jackson. Jackson also tends to be more adult-oriented than North Conway, making it a good spot for couples.

Here are a few of our favorite bed and breakfasts in town:

Snowflake Inn — The home base of the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour is an adults-only property. The suites have jacuzzis built for two, making it a great choice for a romantic getaway.

Inn at Thorn Hill — If you’re looking for an elegant, upscale option in Jackson, this is where to stay. Enjoy spacious, comfortable rooms with thick linens and large bathtubs. The restaurant is special occasion-worthy.

Christmas Farm Inn and Spa — This inn is one of the coziest places around, with big fireplaces. The full-service spa uses Aveda products and there’s an indoor pool and jacuzzi to enjoy year-round.

Wildcat Inn and Tavern — Staying here feels like staying with a good friend in Jackson Village. The rooms have beds with homemade quilts, and downstairs you can enjoy hearty pub fare with other Jackson visitors.

See more places to stay in Jackson here. And our list of New Hampshire cabins with hot tubs includes many in Jackson!

More Things to Do in Jackson and North Conway

Jackson is just a 10-minute drive from North Conway, and there are plenty of fun things to do around this area. (Keep in mind that many local attractions are closed in November and December, including the Mount Washington Auto Road and the Conway Scenic Railroad .

In Jackson, be sure to check out the wonderful White Mountain Puzzles store, and visit the waterfalls at Jackson Falls . The honeymoon covered bridge in Jackson is one of the Granite State’s most famous covered bridges, while Flossie’s General Store next door is worth a perusal. Head to Nestlenook Farm for ice skating and more sleigh rides.

Skiing become an option later in December, and you can enjoy nearby ski resorts like Black Mountain, Attitash, Cranmore Mountain, and Wildcat Mountain.

In North Conway, there are so many great things to do . Enjoy the shops and restaurants of North Conway Village, from The Penguin to Zeb’s General Store, and hit up the Settlers Green outlets for more tax-free holiday shopping! If you’re up for boozy tastings, hit up Moat Mountain Brewing, Ledge Brewing Company, or Cathedral Ledge Distillery, New Hampshire’s only organic distillery.

And then there’s enjoying the great outdoors, if it’s not too cold! Glen Ellis Falls is a wonderful spot to visit near Jackson, while the pools and waterfalls of Diana’s Baths are worth the short hike.

We hope to see you on the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour!

There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit in the White Mountains ! We had a great time on this tour and we hope you enjoy yourself, too!

Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour

Wonderful sleigh ride on the Jingle Bell Chocolate tour. We went from Inn to Inn and were greeted with chocolate treats after ringing our jingle bells. Had a fun group of ladies on our sleigh that love to sing Christmas carols which made it all the more fun. Would recommend this tour - great time!

Lots of fun for couples to do in winter wonderland! Hallmark style sleigh ride with champagne. Go at night, the twinkly lights on the grounds are fantastic. Family run business, super friendly, fire pits to warm you up while you wait, and insanely gorgeous and friendly horses. Lots of fun if you’re in the White Mountains/North Conway area!

We did a sleigh ride st Nestlenook Farm and the ride was wonderful. The grounds are beautifully decorated. The only problem is that it needs to be better organized. When we arrived and headed over to the sleigh we couldn’t find anyone to ask about the boarding. The only person we could find is the driver of one of the sleighs and he said there is a tall man who could help and he is around somewhere. We finally asked some people who were standing around the fire pit and they said you had to get a red ticket at the main building. It was snowy and slippery and with no guidance people were walking in front of the horses and behind them. My husband finally found someone to direct him but it wasn’t easy. I know they mentioned hot chocolate, etc but I saw no evidence of this in the warming shed. We had a 5:40 pm ride. There needs more organization because right beside the sleigh one lady slipped and luckily she fell on her bottom. There seemed to be more important to get the two seated sleigh with champagne taken care of instead of the standard sleigh ride. But I do have to say the driver and the ride itself was great, it is a beautiful holiday spot.

Took a bunch of friends for a winter sleigh ride and it was magical despite the freezing weather. The lights in the woods and around the grounds were beautiful. The driver was happy to share information with us about the horses and the farm. So much fun and a great escape from the modern day technology and chaos.

Great at Christmas time. Ice was too soft to skate but that looks like a perfect spot weather permitting.Sleigh Ride was fun, especially at night with the lights. Need reservations.

NIGHT TIME sleigh ride - Single sleigh is best. They have a nice gazebi with fireplace an ice skating and more.

Winter Restaurant Hours: Thursday – Sunday for Dinner. We will be closed for dinner Monday – Wednesday.

Jackson, New Hampshire’s Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour Is A Holiday Must-Do

Every year for four exclusive and highly sought-after weekends, the Jackson, New Hampshire Chamber of Commerce hosts an event that captures everything magical about a New England Christmas.

Picture this: a sleigh ride through a picture-perfect New Hampshire village, complete with holiday lights, covered bridges and deliciously crafted chocolate treats.

Guests bundle up and pile into a horse-drawn sleigh and are spirited through the festively lit village of Jackson, with different restaurants and confectionery stops along the way. No need to get out of the comfy sleigh, the venues bring the home-made chocolate candies right to you!

The journey begins at Nestlenook Farm , where each guest receives a jingle bell and a festive bag to collect any uneaten chocolates. The Austrian horse-drawn sleigh then sets off into Jackson Village.

The horses trot through the snow, delivering you to the following beautifully decorated Jackson landmarks:

The Inn at Jackson

The Backcountry Bakery & Cafe

The Wentworth, An Elegant Country Inn

J-Town Deli & Country Store

The Snowflake Inn

The RiverWood Inn

Flossie’s General Store

Past treats served during the tour have included dark chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips, chocolate-covered cherry mice with almond slivers for ears, and chocolate mousse with rum sauce. When the one-hour tour returns to Nestlenook, the staff serves hot chocolate to top everything off.

The Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour is $25 per person and books up super fast, so make your reservations early by calling 603-383-9356.

I'm looking at some of the reviews and I wonder what people really expect when taking this tour. It's a lovely ride on a horse drawn carriage. You are presented with a treat at each stop. It's a fun experience which we are attending for the third time in four years (2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic.) You're not stopping at a chocolatier at each stop. You're stopping at establishments that put a great deal of time preparing for this as well as running their own business. So give them a break, sit back, and enjoy. It's really that simple.

So we went there in 2020 so a lot of things were going on and definitely things were different. The tickets were each 30 which stinks for the kids because they definitely don't want $30 of fancy chocolate. I really think that the tour itself was beautiful however I wish the horses had a little bit more of a break because they just go back to back tours. When we started on the tour we only went on about seven stops. One of them was a super sweet lady from Jackson inn and her chocolate was a marshmallow dip chocolate. The rest were lackluster one of them was a small brownie that wasn't wrapped at all which made me not want to eat it given this time and age. The rest was kind of bark and a bar that was like really hard. I do wish the chocolate was a little different such as like fancy peppermint or caramel or something However the tour is today for in such a cute little town I didn't know had so many inns And I love that the places do it for free I mean I know they help they get business but they still do it

I'm a big fan of meeting expectations that have been set. That being said we ordered our tickets over the phone and were mailed the tickets, receipt and brochure. The brochure shows 10 locations and their chocolate 'treasures'. We were excited to go for our first time and did take the tour last weekend. Because one of the establishments is up quite a long hill we understood when picking up their 'treasure' (the brochure's word) along with another at Check-in. Our tour made 7 stops, so along with the 2 collected at the beginning left us short of one stop at another lovely Inn. The chocolate treasures were not as advertised either. TWO of them were quite amazing and delicious and what we would expect. Flossie's Gen'l Store Oreo Truffles were amazing! The Snowflake Inn's Chocolate Mousse with Rum Caramel sauce was delicious. The rest were all very lackluster. Other we rec'd were a tiny piece of milk chocolate bark with mini M&M's, A Chocolate cookie with Cayenne Pepper that tasted like a pencil, a pretzel stick dipped in chocolate, an oats and milk chocolate ball I'm pretty sure everyone has made with their kids when they were younger.... I can't even remember the rest... that's how UNmemorable they were. But Flossie's and the Snowflake Inn's treasure actually involved some effort and were quite fabulous. We also found out not a penny of our $25 ea goes to these members for making their chocolate creations, so we were pitched by a few of them to "Make sure you come by for dinner or shopping!" Not very realistic that you would give me a Chocolate Oat ball that I'm already paying $25 for and I should come spend $150 at your place for dinner in return. If you are in that area you are already patronizing these establishments so thought that was pretty unnecessary. Our carriage was not full with 10 people in it so at $250 for a quick run around town it seems like they could figure out a better system of giving customers (us) what we paid for in their advertisement. I wish I could take a picture of this and attach to show you the expectation was Bourbon Truffles, White Chocolate Peppermint Bark drizzled with dark chocolate, Porcupine Cookies, Cherry Cordial Truffles, and a chocolate marshmallow reindeer looking creation among others. We've done it, we'll never do it again. I would suggest you save the money and go to Nestlenook and Ice Skate in the winter... it's beautiful and romantic and never disappoints!

Organized by the Jackson Chamber of Commerce, this horse-drawn-sleigh tour through Jackson was really charming. The tour was a bit tricky to book, as you have to do it by phone and the organizer seemed a bit frazzled. But it was worth the 3-hour drive from Boston. Nestlenook Farm is adorable, and looks like somethin out of a storybook, with its covered bridges and fairy-lit trees covered in snow. In fact, the whole town of Jackson looks that way! Quaint little libraries, inns and cafes, and the third week in December made for peak Wintry prettiness. You climb into one of several horse-drawn sleighs, and are led through Jackson with periodic stops at selected inns, bakeries and cafes, where an employee meets the sleigh with trays of goodies. Some selections from our tour were dark chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips, a chocolate-covered cherry styled like a mouse complete with almond sliver ears, and chocolate mousse with rum sauce (my favorite). My companion and I sat in the front seat with the driver and so got a bit more historical info about the town than the other participants, but the views of the town really are lovely enough. I highly recommend not waiting for the last tour of the day (4PM) because it got dark half way in and while the town is lit for the holidays, it's prettier in the day light. Dress warmly as well, as the tour is about an hour, all outdoors. (I would also avoid sitting up front with the driver, because, well, the horse smell was powerful!) Back at the Nestlenook post-tour, there were bonfires and piping to chocolate waiting for us. With very friendly staff, plenty of chocolate, and even a marriage proposal during the tour, definitely worth the $25!
