Journey to the North Pole – Dec. 14-17

Journey to the North PoleNORTH CONWAY NH  – Join us on the family adventure of a lifetime aboard the magical Journey to the North Pole™! The Journey to the North Pole™ offers a truly unique experience that only happens here in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire, with adventures departing from North Conway and Lincoln, NH during the holiday season in November and December each year.

A two-hour adventure, The Journey to the North Pole™ takes you on a magical trip to see Santa in his workshop at the North Pole!

You and your family will board the Journey to the North Pole™ train and be served delicious hot chocolate by our magical chefs, along with some of Santa’s favorite treats! Once arriving at the North Pole you’ll be escorted by elves (Santa’s helpers) outside and up to the North Pole Theater having the opportunity to leave your Santa letters at the Post Office, as well as visit with some toyshop elves along the way. The classic “The Night Before Christmas” poem by Clement Clarke Moore is dramatically read along with a visit from Santa himself, truly a magical event for all ages! Each child will receive a special gift on the return trip back to New Hampshire.
