Journey to the North Pole

The journey starts when you board the Journey to the North Pole™ train at Schouler Park in North Conway. As the train leaves the station and heads north through the snow, magical chefs will serve you hot chocolate and some of Santa’s favorite treats! Look out the window to see wolves dancing through the forest. If you look closely, you might even see some reindeer!

When you arrive at the North Pole you’ll be greeted by elves (Santa’s helpers) and escorted to the North Pole Theater. Make sure you bring your wish list! You can leave Santa a letter at the Post Office, and visit the elves the read through all of the Christmas Lists each year. Next, have a seat in the theater and enjoy the classic “The Night Before Christmas” poem by Clement Clarke Moore. Finally, meet Santa himself! Kids even receive a special gift on the return trip to New Hampshire.
