If you are visiting Vancouver Island this holiday season, this train is a perfect way to add some festive fun to your itinerary.

It’s a beautiful experience both inside and out, as the train itself is entirely decked out in twinkling lights while travelling through a path of  lit up displays.

Adding to the excitement, the 30 minute ride takes place on an actual train. Guests are riding around in express passenger cars, pulled by the Green Hornet locomotive.

You can board the Christmas train at the BC Forest Discovery Centre in Duncan, which is between between Victoria and Nanaimo. There is also an open-air museum with a fully operational railway as well.

Tickets can be purchased on selected days between December 3-23, for $8-$12.
