Visit Santa at Snowplanet.

2020 Santa Experiences.

Child hugging Santa at Snowplanet

Have your Santa photo taken at Snowplanet.

Santa photos available 28th November – 24th December.

This Festive Season Santa is taking up residency in his cabin in Snowplanet’s Winter Wonderland. When you book to see Santa, you step into a magical, white winter fairy-tale where lifelong memories are made, this is not an opportunity you want to miss!

During your photo session, you will experience meeting Santa, seeing a picture of Mrs. Claus hanging above a roaring fire, Christmas letters being sorted by an elf, Rudolph and Santa’s sleigh parked-up ready for Christmas deliveries, all nestled in an alpine village, amongst Christmas trees at the base of a mountain.

After visiting Santa out on the snow, feel free to warm up in Snowplanet’s 7Summits Restaurant & Bar with a hot chocolate.

Christmas experiences.



Visit Santa at Snowplanet in Auckland


1 person family: $15
2 person family: $28
3 person family: $39
4 person family: $48
Extra persons: $12pp

Each person in a family group will receive access to the snowdome to visit Santa in his Winter Wonderland Cabin. Snowplanet’s photographer will capture a range of memories from the moment you meet Santa, throughout your visit with him. What to expect:

  • Each family will receive one printed group photo to take home (*The best photo will be selected by our printing team)
  • Every child who visits Santa’s Cabin will receive a free lollipop from Santa
  • Under 2s are FREE with a full paying adult

*Please note there will be a short wait while your photo is being printed.

To ensure everyone has a great experience we limit Santa sessions to 4 or 5 families every 15 minutes. Otherwise, the wait in the snow is too long, especially for families with young children. If your family size is greater than 6 persons, we know that the photoshoots take longer so it is essential families don’t exceed this group size on arrival without booking first. Otherwise, it will extend the wait for every other family that follows.

For large families of 7 persons or more, we will ask if the booking is for two families or one.  Combining families without prior arrangement also extends the wait for every other family. If you do choose to combine your families into one booking without prior arrangement, our photographer will only have time to perform ONE photo shoot and won’t be able to separate out the families into separate shoots.

What to wear.

It might be summer but shorts and jandals are not the go in the dome folks!

When you visit Santa inside his Winter Wonderland you need to remember we keep it at a chilly -5 degrees to make sure Santa feels at home. Please wear lots of warm clothes, a beanie and gloves. Also, the snow tends to make your shoes wet, so waterproof shoes or snow boots are recommended. Don’t worry if you don’t have these or forget something, you can hire them on the day for a special price – only for Santa visitors!
