Christmas in Canada

From fairytale snow across postcard landscapes to elk that resemble reindeer, a Christmas tour in Canada is the perfect seasonal retreat. A ‘white Christmas’ will suddenly make sense and instead of one Christmas tree, you can look forward to vast forests of them.

Enjoy the lights at the beautiful Butchart Gardens, a magical place at any time of year, but especially so as Christmas arrives. Enjoy dogsledding at Banff, where you’ll spend Christmas at one of the Fairmont’s iconic flagship hotels, the ‘Castle in the Rockies’. It’s sure to be more than just an idyllic Christmas and one of your most enjoyable in living memory.

Christmas in Antarctica

Where better to spend Christmas than cruising the vast icy wonderland of Antarctica? December takes in the Antarctica Spring, meaning pack ice breaking up and regular fresh coatings of snow display a landscape at its most pristine. 

Abundant wildlife is a virtual guarantee - whales, seals, penguins, marine birds and more mean photo opportunities abound. In addition, truly phenomenal sunsets, ever-changing cloud formations and magnificent icescapes present Antarctica in stunning majesty.

A truly magical once-in-a-lifetime winter adventure awaits with Scenic Eclipse.
