Santa Claus

Alpine Retreat at ACTIVATE

Due to overwhelming demand Santa’s ” ALPINE RETREAT” is no longer taking any further requests for bookings. We would like to thank everyone for there amazing support. Normally we endeavour to try to help everyone, however with the times that we are presently in its just not possible!

We would like to wish everyone a very safe, enjoyable christmas and hope to see you all very soon.



As Christmas approaches, the question “Have you remembered to be good” is something  Santa’s friends, young and old, often ask themselves. Fortunately, Santa’s elves have some comforting insider information relating to this quandary. Without a shadow of a doubt, Santa Claus is the nicest and most good-humoured person on the planet!

If you have done your best at trying to be good, you rest assure that your name will be found on the elves’ List of the World’s Well Behaved Children.


At Christmastime, Santa Claus travels around the world to distribute gifts. Year after year, Children’s letters sent to Santa Claus are wish lists for an enormous number of toys, games, dolls and toy cars, while grown-ups commonly ask for health, peace and love for themselves, their family and friends.

Santa Claus himself thinks that one of the best things about Christmas is good spirit. This is a gift always on top of the enormous pile of Christmas gifts.


Santa Claus has always had a close relationship with nature. He spends a great deal of time with his elves in the forests, on northern fells and the wilderness, sometimes travelling on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, sometimes pulled on a sled by a team of huskies, occasionally on skis or with a rowing boat. In summer, Santa likes to pick berries and one his favorite pastimes in winter is to marvel the magnificent northern lights.


Because of what is happening in the world at the moment, Santa has decided to bring his retreat to Activate this year. Santa wants to make sure that everyone is safe for christmas including himself. This years event will be curtailed to ensure that everyone is safe whilst visiting him.
