Alderfords Santa Island Experience


Alderfords Santa Island Experience

You are invited to embark on a magical adventure across the lake to discover the story of Santa and his elves!

Your experience will begin with an enchanting boat journey across the lake to seek out the island of Santa and his elves. The elves will welcome you with their all time favorite treat, a gooey smore, to enjoy whilst listening to the story of how their adventure began. One by one, you will follow the wishing elf across her wishing bridge to make a very special Christmas wish, only heard by the enchanted stream running below.

With time of the essence, you will join the elves in their toy workshop to help them with the tall order of making millions of toys for all the good boys and girls across the world. They will be so glad you came! Of course, this hard work will not go unrewarded, with the elf bar open for business serving hot chocolates for all of the helpful children, as well as a well-deserved festive tipple for the mums and dads.

Once the hard work is done, the elves will lead you as you seek out Santa’s Grotto, where Santa Claus himself will be waiting to hear your Christmas wish.

For an additional £2, your child will receive a personalised invitation from Father Christmas himself inviting them to his island this Christmas.

This is only available if you book before the 1st October.

Please remember to dress up warm, with lots of layers! This is an outdoor experience, so please do dress sensibly

This experience is fully accessible, so please do get in touch beforehand if you require wheelchair access and we can arrange this for you.

Please remember to arrive at least 15 minutes before your allocated time slot, to ensure there is plenty of time to get ready and check in before the boat leaves.
