Christmas at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge sounds like the kind of Christmas from Bing Crosby movies and television specials. Skating under the stars. Carols around a crackling fire. Bedtime stories on comfy couches with milk and cookies and chilled champagne at the stroke of midnight.

During Christmas, the lodge will become a holiday destination for all ages. Even teenagers get their own retreat with Xbox Kinect and there’s movie night and a roaring fire with hot chocolate and S’mores for the whole family on the shores of Lac Beauvert.

Book a package now at theand Christmas accommodation includes in-room Christmas tree and a complete kit of decorations and a visit from Santa on Christmas Eve. The Festival of Christmas deal is available from December 23rd to 27th with rates starting at $399 Cdn.
