Christmas Winterland Event 2023

There is a story, I’ve been told,
About a place that’s very old,
A place that only few have seen,
A place where you have never been.

in this land, I’ll have you know,
It seems to always ever snow.
There must be something in the air,
A kind of magic everywhere.

There’s fun and laughter to be had,
And no one there is ever sad,
Especially with the time at hand!
Behold, it’s Christmas Winterland!

With finest arts and crafts to make,
And choccy goodies all to bake,
mountain ranges all around
And festive markets to be found.

It’s to this land that we must haul,
And bring supplies for one and all.
And don’t forget the Northstar post,
Where Christmas cards are sent the most.

So, how on earth do you get there?
Well, not by land and not by air.
Instead you need to give a hand
And load supplies to Winterland.

Then once you’re ready for the ride
And offering your help with pride,
A snowy portal will appear.
Just look around, you’ll find it near.

Then drive to it, and don’t delay
Now park inside, then on your way!
Once you arrive, explore, have fun.
It’s Winterland for everyone.

But wait, no wait, I tell you more,
And for this task I do implore,
That this is only half of it
And now here comes the greatest bit.

That to this land you’ll venture forth,
Yes to this land, it’s in the north,
But back you’ll go with gift packs bound
For all the homeland cities found.

Ah, found you say, but found oh where?
Well, through the portal if you dare,
With cargo destination known,
Else leave it to the portal’s own.

Then once you’re back, with gift packs done,
You’ll help to spread more snowy fun!
But not just fun, a legend grand,
Of magic Christmas Winterland!

So, haul for one and one for haul
And Very Merry Christmas All!

It’s that special time of year again, but this time we’ve sprinkled a little magic around and we are delighted to offer to you something that has never been seen before, something unprecedented, and we’ve been working on it for a very long time. To our #BestCommunityEver, we give you our Christmas Winterland event for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator!

Join us to explore the fun and festivities of Christmas like never before as you embark on a magical journey to Christmas Winterland and deliver supplies and gift packs across the world! For this event, we challenge the community to get 200 Snowflakes awarded to cities across all trucking territories for each of the 5 tiers. That's 1,000 snowflakes in total. As tier rewards, players will receive specially crafted cabin items, each representing one of the five festive depots within Winterland!

You’ll be able to track the community progress on World of Trucks or directly in the game using the updated External Contracts interface.

We’ve also created a special #ChristmasWinterland event Desktop Background Theme this year, and we like to think it sends a clear message for how to find some fun this Christmas, follow the sign post, we hope you enjoy it! It will be there for the duration of the event to raise event awareness and share the Christmas spirit for you!

Also, pencil in the 19th of December, from 18:00 CET, for our annual Christmas Stream featuring Pavel Šebor! There will be some giveaways, and plenty of interesting updates as usual, there might even be some teasers for new stuff, but for sure there will be loads of fun with a touch of SCS magic! The stream will take place on our Twitch channel, so don't miss it!

Christmas Winterland Event Rules:

Using External Contracts with a World of Trucks-connected profile in Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator or both, the community is to deliver supplies and gift packs to and from Christmas Winterland using as many cities as possible.

There are 5 different depots in Winterland for all deliveries, to and from, they are:

  1. Christmas Market...a town square market
  2. Marigold's...a chocolate factory
  3. Northstar...a post office
  4. Rudolph's arts workshop
  5. Snowy Peaks...a mountain resort market

Your personal goal is to complete 15 deliveries for them including at least 1 delivery to or from each depot, using Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator or both games combined.

Snowflakes are gained for those cities that have delivered to or received from Winterland. For a city to receive 1 Snowflake, the community needs to complete 1000 deliveries between it and Winterland. Each city can receive up to 5 Snowflakes!

The community goal is to reach at least 1000 Snowflakes for cities across all trucking territories. A unique community reward will be unlocked for each tier of 200 Snowflakes accomplished, with 5 tiers in total.


  • Personal: Your contribution of  15 or more deliveries to or from the 5 Christmas Winterland depots will gain you:
    • A special World of Trucks Achievement.
    • A stunningly beautiful, Winterland truck paint job

  • Community: There will be 5 tiers to unlock. Each tier will bring a special cabin item reward for both games, based on the 5 amazing depots within Christmas Winterland, so let's haul!

Christmas Winterland directions

Access to Winterland is available using a portal, which materialises after you've accepted any event cargo. Find it on the map and navigate to it. Look for the sparkles!

When leaving Winterland through a portal, you can either deliver a cargo to its destination, or travel to a random city for a new job to Winterland.

Note: In order to qualify for any community reward, you must complete at least your personal goal in Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator or both. Each reward will be a Steam inventory item for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. Once completed, claim your reward in the Events page on your World of Trucks profile.

The event will be concluded on Sunday, the 14th of January at 23:59 UTC.

As always, we look forward to hearing about your Christmas Winterland adventure this year, and we’d sure love to see more photos from you while you are achieving your goals and receiving your well-earned rewards this special season of giving. Share your screenshots and videos with us using the hashtag #ChristmasWinterland on our Facebook ATS / ETS2, X (formerly Twitter), and Instagram profiles and we will share our favourite ones.
