18 Dec Last Call for the Santa Express and Journey to the North Pole Trains!
For many families, the magical train ride through the mountains of NH with Santa and his elves has become an annual tradition. The Journey to the North Pole and The Santa Express trains transport families on a wonderful New Hampshire adventure to visit Santa, returning them with a little gift and a lifetime of memories.
The Ho-Ho-Hobo Santa Express is an enchanting holiday excursion that follows along the winding Pemigewassett River from Hobo Junction in Lincoln to Woodstock, and then back to Lincoln again. The restored vintage cars are not only decorated for the season, but also warm and comfortable for this fun journey. Before departure, families can relax in the warmth of the classic railroad station, which is complete with restrooms and a gift shop. Along the ride, passengers enjoy complimentary hot cocoa and cookies, as well as a visit from Santa, who brings a small gift for each child. The train departs at 1pm for an hour-and-a-half adventure! First Class seating tickets are $25.00 with accommodations in our restored dining cars. Coach Class seating tickets are $20.00, and children ages 2 and under are free. This is the last weekend to get aboard this train! For more information and tickets, please visit www.santatrains.com or call 603-745-2135.
The Journey to the North Pole offers a truly unique experience that only happens in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. This is a magical two-hour round trip in the evening, inspired by a classic children’s holiday book. Families on the Journey to the North Pole train are served delicious hot chocolate by special chefs, along with Santa’s favorite chocolate nougat with centers as white as snow. Upon arrival at the North Pole, everyone departs from the train and follows the elves up to Santa’s Toy Workshop, where there is singing and story telling. Then, Santa takes a break from his busy schedule to visit the children! This Journey will make true believers of all, reminding us that the gift of giving is what the season is all about.
