December 23 – Portage Flyer Christmas Train Ride to Santa

Super-magicated is the word we use to describe this fun community event!

  • The Portage Flyer locomotive and authentic coaches have a thousand lights
  • Enjoy a cup of free hot chocolate and cookies (while supplies last) and sing along to the carols while you wait to board the train
  • Once on board, you will gently ride alongside the Muskoka River to The Purser’s Cabin
  • Santa is waiting to hear “your side of the story”. If you want to stay longer, you can always catch the next train back
