Exclusive access, special activities, and distinguished Canadian hosts to enhance two spectacular experiences: Newfoundland's Fogo Island Inn and Heli-Hiking at British Columbia's Bugaboo Lodge
TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Tully Luxury Travel, a Canadian company established in 1987, has designed two bespoke itineraries to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. The two adventures include trekking the Rockies via helicopter, sailing past icebergs, and reading by a roaring fire. Four of Canada's best-known citizens have been invited to share their love of the mountains and the sea. Alongside Tully Luxury Travel's Senior Director of Experiences, Judi Cohen, they will help immerse guests in deeply meaningful, little-explored parts of this huge and gorgeous land.
Newfoundland Heritage and Authentic Luxury at Fogo Island Inn
The go-to destination for discerning travelers the world over, Fogo Island Inn is on an island off an island on Canada's East Coast. Perched atop jagged rocks overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Fogo Island Inn is both radically contemporary and resolutely traditional. "For the traveler who appreciates the finer details - in the textiles, design, cuisine, history, authenticity and sense of place - Fogo Island Inn is beautifully sensitive and highly sophisticated," says Cohen. "Its rugged, breathtaking environment adds to its uniqueness."
Tully Luxury Travel clients will enjoy a private chartered flight from Halifax to Fogo Island, exclusive use of the hotel, an outdoor "boil-up" catered by chefs of the inn, and a private boat tour of the icebergs offshore from Fogo Island. Two of Canada's most renowned global citizens will take part in the trip: Wade Davis, Explorer in Residence with the National Geographic Society, and Dr. Joe MacInnis, the physician, scientist and author who led the teams that made the first science dives under the North Pole and built the world's first polar undersea station.
Heli-hiking with Canadian Mountain Holidays at Bugaboo Lodge
The beautiful and remote CMH Bugaboo Lodge is nestled in the Rockies of British Columbia. With a helicopter to chauffeur them from one extraordinary vista to another, guests will experience the singular joy of hiking on such a grand scale. "Words cannot do justice to the thrill of a helicopter landing just feet away or the beauty and wonder of being so high up in the mountains," says Cohen. Guests need only bring a sense of adventure – they can go at their own pace and will be outfitted with boots, pants, a backpack, a jacket, and any other necessities when they arrive at the lodge.
Two special hosts will take part in all activities and lead after-dinner talks: Ian Brown, the famed author and Globe and Mail writer who has won numerous National Magazine and Newspaper Awards, and Susan Ormiston, the CBC Senior Correspondent and Foreign Press Association Award winner who has covered virtually every important national event during her career. Tully Luxury Travel clients will enjoy exclusive access to Bugaboo Lodge, private charter transportation from Calgary to the Bugaboo heli-pad, and a special barbeque dinner on the mountain.
Tully Luxury Travel's Canada 150 departure dates to Fogo Island Inn are May 25-29, 2017, and June 1-5, 2017. Departures to Bugaboo Lodge are July 14-18, 2017, and August 10-14, 2017. For more details please visit: http://experiences.tullyluxurytravel.com/canada150/
