Christmas & New Year

Experience the festive season like never before. With snow capped mountains, Santa’s grotto and Britain's only free roaming reindeer herd, Aviemore and the Cairngorms National Park is the perfect place to celebrate Christmas with the family.

Aviemore becomes a winter wonderland at Christmas. Take a stroll along the crisp snowy shores of Loch Morlich, hop on the Strathspey Railway and witness the natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands and if you’re really lucky you may even get to experience the other-worldly dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis.

If you’re planning a family celebration filled with festive treats then Aviemore is the place to be. Make sure you’re on the nice list by meeting Santa in his woodland grotto, get up close to Santa’s reindeer and enjoy delicious Christmas fare at our resort restaurants.

Couples can relax in style both indoors and out. Make new memories together as you adventure into the Cairngorms, or simply unwind with ELEMIS spa treatments, sumptuous food and a fine dram of local whisky in front of a roaring log fire.
