2 nights in the Dam House Stargazing with Santa

4 Dec 2015 - 20 Dec 2015

We are doing a very special Christmas experience at the Dam House in the mountains.
This year we are offering families a magical experience Stargazing with SANTA at Spelga Dam.

Santa will arrive on the evening of your arrival, to give you a virtual tour of the heavens using his magical telescope to show the night sky at its best in the high mountains. The Christmas story will be told by Santa himself, and kids will be thrilled with the search for the Christmas Star.
This wonderful time of year will also allow everyone to see the wonders of the winter sky, such as the great hunter Orion and his wonderful nebula, the seven sisters, Taurus the Bull and the mighty Jupiter.

Presents will be delivered to each child, that has been good during the year, before Santa disappears off into the night sky.

A Christmas movie night and hot chocolate will be provided on the second night of your stay, and mulled wine for the adults.
2 nights in the Dam House Stargazing with Santa costs £330 (equivalent of £165 between 2 families)
Price includes accommodation/mulled wine/logs/Santa Visit and presents (house is decorated for Christmas with lights)
New Games room has wood burning stove and snooker table.
