Did you know Durango was voted one of the best Christmas towns in the USA by Country Living Magazine? It comes as no surprise when you have the magical holiday experience of riding the Polar Express in your own backyard. The Polar Express is a holiday filled train ride that includes a 35 minute ride through a winter wonderland and arrives at the North Pole. At the North Pole you will get to see Santa working away in his workshop as well as two of his real life reindeer. Every guest will receive hot chocolate a cookie and the first gift of the season. Everyone is encouraged to wear pajamas and bundle up for this amazing holiday experience.
Safety has always been the upmost importance to the team at the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. They suggest visitors come prepared with a face mask and keep to the social distance rules. The train will be sanitized during and between every trip for your safety. The Polar Express will be operating at reduced capacity this year so get your tickets soon before they’re gone.
