Santa Weekends in Aviemore

Santa Weekends

Our Santa Breaks are truly all about magical times with children, family and friends. Yes, even the grown-ups will have a great time.

Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Elves transform our resort into a real winter wonderland. Visit Santa in his woodland grotto, real reindeer will arrive and elves will pop up around every corner, plus there’s activities and entertainment for the whole family.

Are you in the festive spirit yet?

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 woodland grotto where the kids will get an early gift from Santa. Before you leave, 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.

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

Dive into our pool, relax with a family movie at Spey Valley Cinema, 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.
