NEW! Sunset Carriage Tours

Olana offers couples, or groups, carriage rides on the 19th century carriage roads. A stunning carriage and draft team saunter Frederic Church’s gravel roads bringing travelers to majestic views and stellar landscapes while the sun sets toward the Catskill Mountains. Meet the carriage 10 minutes before start time at the Olana Visitor Center entrance. For Olana’s 50th Anniversary, we are activating this traditional travel option on the site once a month. Rain dates Saturdays. Maximum capacity: 6 persons.
