Christmas is the most enchanting holiday of the year and although December is still a few months away, it’s not a bad idea to plan ahead. On our must-hit list this winter? Alberta Prairie Railway’s Polar Express experience – a magical event taken straight from the pages of a children’s classic.

Set to the acclaimed movie soundtrack, nearly everything that you’ll experience aboard this jolly train ride has been tailored with love and an appreciation for the original material.

Best described as a round-trip journey to the ‘North Pole,’ families will be totally immersed in the story and can enjoy cookies, hot chocolate and live entertainment before leaving with some complimentary goodies.

In hopes of encouraging guests to hold the feeling of Christmas near throughout the season, everyone will receive a ceramic Polar Express mug and a ‘first gift of Christmas” silver sleigh bell – just like in the book.

Aren’t able to make the first trip on November 19th when the first train leaves the station? Albertans will actually have the remainder of the month and all of December to check it out.
