For several years the Christmas Experience at Blithbury Reindeer Lodge has remained unchanged, so this year we’ve decided to make it a bit different to usual and have changed the Christmas Experience to give you something new and exciting to enjoy in 2018!
Visiting our reindeers will remain at the heart of the visit as well as meeting Father Christmas in his grotto – it wouldn’t be the Blithbury Reindeer Lodge Christmas Experience without these activities.
Other than an allocated time slot to visit Father Christmas, we are making the remainder of the day a lot more relaxed giving you the chance explore the farm in your own time and at a pace to suit you and the remainder of your group.
The Christmas Experience
The activities available to enjoy at Blithbury Reindeer Lodge Christmas experience 2018 include the following:
New to the Farm this year is an indoor soft play area for children to enjoy.
With a large seating area available for adults to relax in with access to free Wi-Fi, let the children burn off their excess excitement having just met Father Christmas in our fully equipped indoor play area, available whatever the weather.
We are delighted to welcome Punch and Judy to the farm
This year, another new addition to the Christmas Experience and a firm family favourite with a twist! Typically associated with seaside holidays, Punch and Judy will be performing a unique Christmas Show featuring Dasher and Father Christmas inside the comfort of one of our barns. With regular performances don’t forget to check the show times and arrive in plenty of time to find a good seat and make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action!
Meet and treat the reindeer
With more than 100 reindeer at the farm, you will have the opportunity to meet our reindeer and hand-feed them too. Our reindeer love to eat moss so we have plenty available for you to feed to them with (for a small additional fee). A fun activity for everyone no matter what age.
Experience a traditional sleigh ride
Traditional Scandinavian sleighs, which have been pulled by reindeer for hundreds of years and are still used today in Lapland. The sleighs sit much lower to the ground and are lighter, ensuring the reindeer can pull them with ease. To keep them light, we need to restrict passengers to 1 adult and 1 child. We will have more than 1 sleigh running at a time though so if you are visiting as a family with 2 of more children, your sleighs can run at the time same.
Explore our new Christmas Shop
Filled with festive gifts and Blithbury Lodge souvenirs and take something home to remind you of your trip. Following the farms recent renovation, the shop has been extended and has even more delights on offer than before.
