Midweek Santa Breaks in Aviemore

Midweek Santa Breaks in Aviemore

Our new 2 night midweek Santa break is a mini version of our Santa Weekends but lower in price and perfect for parents with pre-school children.

Give the little ones a surprise with a brilliant mini break before Christmas. Head to the winter wonderland of the Cairngorms where your children will meet with Santa and can visit a real reindeer herd (the UK’s only free ranging reindeer).


Arrive at the festive Macdonald Aviemore Resort, soak up the atmosphere under the twinkling lights and surrounded by Christmas decorations.

For any last minute assurances that you will be on the Nice List, visit Santa and his Elves at his grotto. During your visit to Aviemore, make sure you visit Santa’s reindeer (the UK’s only free-ranging reindeer herd).

An extensive entertainment programme packed with activities for the whole family including a Fire Pit Singalong, I'm An Elf...Get Me Out Of Here! and The Panto School or enjoy some Christmas favourites with the family at Spey Valley Cinema.

Enjoy a deliciously festive meal at our Aspects Restaurant and a full Scottish breakfast each morning.

Dive into our pool, treat the family at Spey Valley Shopping or spoil yourself with a beauty treatment, there’s so much to do at the resort. If you want to explore, head out into Aviemore, visit nearby lochs, get up close with the animals at Highland Wildlife Park or spend some time together at Landmark Forest Adventure Park.
