In the category ‘’what to do with the family during the Holidays’’, you will find, without a doubt, the Orford Express Christmas train!


During 3 weekends in December, the touristic train transforms itself to bring the magic of Christmas to your little ones!

At their arrival at the boarding dock the children are amazed by the train captain’s welcome who we lovingly call Mr. Craquepoute, taken from the popular children television show, Toc Toc Toc. Then the little ones will get on board for a two hour trip between Magog and Sherbrooke. On the menu: hot chocolat, cookies, coloring, candy and a visit from the REAL Santa Claus!


There is no words strong enough to describe the look on the little ones faces when they see Santa for the first time. To create an even more magical moment, Caroline Noel, Santa Claus’ daughter, tells her story and sings some Christmas classics on the ride back to the train station.

The Christmas spirit is REALLY everywhere. The children will remember this day for a very long time…

The Orford Express also offers brunch, lunch and dinner aboard the Christmas train until the 18th of December.

Got to love the Eastern Townships!!
