Hosted by West Coast Heritage Railway Park in Squamish, it’s an opportunity for kids and not-so-grown-ups to be whisked away on a magical trip to the North Pole.

Guests will sip on hot chocolate and munch on cookies as they experience a fantastic festive adventure.

Passengers are also encouraged to get cozy and wear their pyjamas – just like in the book.
