Exploring the Aurora Borealis in Yukon

Glamping in the heart of Northern Ontario
Ontario’s north is a vast wilderness full of natural, unspoiled beauty that few ever get to experience. This holiday season consider gifting a glamping adventure (to be experienced during the upcoming summer) that allows visitors to see specacluar waterfalls, paddle on quiet lakes and enjoy the warmth of northern hospitality. Your guests will stay in luxurious prospectors’ tents, enjoy delicious food by a bonfire and take a cruise on a pontoon through the little-known Grassy River system. A spectacular, one-of-a-kind excursion perfect for couples who love the outdoors.
Spectacular journey into Newfoundland
Seeing the dramatic cliffs and wild scenery of Newfoundland should be on everyone’s must-see list of Canadian adventures. Gift this 7-day adventure in Western Newfoundland and you’ll be giving so much more than just a trip: it will be a dizzying adventure by land and sea, creating a lifetime of memories and unforgettable experiences. Your guests will travel to Gros Morne National Park to see some of the iconic scenery, including the Tablelands, a remarkable stretch of geology that makes this park a UNESCO-recognized World Heritage Site. They will journey by boat into a quiet landlocked fjord, surrounded by 2,000 foot granite cliffs and staggeringly high waterfalls. And this is just the beginning of the adventure. The days ahead will bring icebergs, whales, islands and so much more. An amazing adventure for the wanderers on your list.
Exploring Algonquin Park in style
Delcious food, good company and cozy accommodations make this adult-only retreat in one of Canada’s most iconic parks a special treat for outdoor enthusiasts. This 4-day excursion allows guests to sleep in cozy comfort while giving them access to stunning Algonquin Park. Quiet morning canoe trips, evenings by the fire, a night of stargazing — this is like camp but for adults. Each day brings a new adventure, from hiking and paddling to heading out to look for the region’s most iconic animal, the mighty moose. This is an incredible gift for people of all ages and fitness levels as activities are adjusted based on individual needs. If your loved one has ever dreamt of seeing the beauty of Algonquin Park but doesn’t enjoy camping — this is the perfect compromise and sure to be an unforgettable gift.
