Escape for a pre-Christmas break to the winter wonderland of Aviemore and the Cairngorms. Just come to relax and enjoy stunning views of the snow-capped mountains, tranquil lochs and pine forests, or enjoy all there is to do on our doorstep.
2. Spot Polar Bears
Head to another top attraction, The Highland Wildlife Park, to see lots of rare animals including polar bears and snow leopards. Pre-booking is required.
4. Splash in the Leisure Pool
We've got the biggest leisure centre in the Cairngorms on resort and we're delighted to be open for residents. There's a shallow end for little ones, a large deeper pool for laps and the popular flume ride!
5. Hop Aboard
Capture breath-taking scenery on board the Strathspey Steam Railway which departs from Aviemore Train Station for a journey through the Cairngorms. Check out their Mince Pie & Festive Afternoon Tea events.
6. Experience a Santa Weekend
Experience this magical 3 night break guaranteed to make the little ones light up. Starting from late November.
7. A Touch of Retail Therapy
Our large, luxury department store at the resort is the perfect place to do some Christmas shopping. Browse designer names for the whole family and home including French Connection, Barbour and much more. Enjoy a cake and coffee too at the cafe.
8. Star Gazing
Winter and its run-up, with its colder, crisp, dark nights which draw in earlier, is many a stargazer’s favourite season. The skies are so dark in the Cairngorms that, unlike most other places, you can see nebula just using binoculars!
10. Indulge in a Beauty Treatment
Our beauty treatment rooms are now available to book a luxurious Elemis treatment. Why not spoil yourself during your visit?
