When guests arrive at the Aurora Winter Festival, they will be transported to a true North Pole experience.

Visitors will be able to journey through the mystical worlds which are made up of four uniquely inspired regions that vary in style, texture, sound, and colours.

The Disco Den, Arctic Retreat, Luminous Gardens, and Whimsical Forest will include impressive designs, giant sculptures, and custom displays.

Another highlight of the festival is the characters. You’ll be able to pay a visit to Thyra Queen of the Ice Elves, Yin the Yeti Prince, and of course Santa Claus and his elves.
