This Magical Winter Village In Ontario Looks Like The North Pole

Be Buddy the Elf for a day!

Every winter, Ontario becomes a sparkling snowy wonderland filled with magical places to visit. From shimmering light installations to dreamy markets, you'll be filled with cheer everywhere you go. This season, you can take a frosty trip to the North Pole. Tucked away in the countryside is an enchanting winter wonderland waiting to be explored. Hop on your sleigh and head over to Ontario's Santa's Village Dalkeith for the most festive adventure of the season.

Located an hour outside of Ottawa, Santa's Village Dalkeith is known as the North Pole of Eastern Ontario.

Get your friends together and wander through this snowy wonderland this winter. With so many holiday activities available, you'll want to spend the entire day there.

Visit the petting zoo to hand-feed adorable "reindeer," ponies, and goats.

Take a trip through the village on the Christmas train, or hop aboard the Hay Wagon or Horse Drawn Sleigh for a snowy ride.

Search for your perfect Christmas tree in the selection of precut balsam, fir, and white spruce.

Stroll through the frosty forest trails, which are perfect for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, weather permitting.

No visit to the North Pole is complete without food, and Santa's Village is brimming with tasty treats.

Indulge in warm, local goodies like artisan beavertails and strudels that would have even the Grinch drooling.

The Elf's Kitchen serves up some juicy hamburgers, hot dogs, and vegan food options to satisfy everyone's cravings.

After your winter adventures, sit down by the crackling fire and enjoy free hot chocolate and marshmallow roasting.

The village officially opens on November 30 and will run every weekend until Christmas. Admission is $10 per person.
