In Our Back Yard – Santa by Train or Boat

r One of the most unique Christmas experiences in the entire nation is right here in our back yard. Less than an hour away in Heber is the North Pole Express. This is an old narrow gauge train that offers an old-fashioned and unforgettable Christmas experience for the entire family. This 90-minute round trip train ride starts off from the Heber Train Station with Santa’s Elves providing Mrs. Claus’s chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate to drink while singing Christmas carols. When the train arrives at the north pole, Santa will board the train for the trip back to Heber and present the kids with a gift. The whole trip is a really fun experience, especially for the kids.

The North Pole Express runs every evening, except Sunday, until December 22. Tickets can be purchased for North Pole Class Seating or First-class Seating. You can email a train agent at mailto:info@hebervalleyrr.org or call (435) 654-5601. The Heber Valley Railroad Depot is located at 450 South 600 West, in Heber.

If you want to see a Christmas experience by boat, the CLAS Ropes Course offers a Christmas Cruise on the Provo River. This is another neat experience as thousands of lights and Christmas scenes light up along the shore and reflect off the water. Christmas music is played along the way and the boat Captain gives a fun narrative along the way. The boat cruise lasts about 20 to 25 minutes. The boats are uncovered and you need to bring your own blankets and warm clothes.

The Christmas Boat Cruise departs from CLAS Ropes Course at 3606 West Center Street in Provo. The cruise runs every 30 minutes Monday through Thursday from 6:30 to 9:00 PM and on Friday and Saturday night from 6:30 to 10:00 PM. The price is $8 per person. If you have a large group you can rent the entire boat for $175 Tuesday through Thursday and $195 on Monday, Friday, and Saturday. The Christmas Boat Cruise runs through December 22.
