Here, you can enjoy lakeside lodgings year-round with flexible family, romantic or wedding packages as well as the use of all the on-site season-appropriate recreational activities at your disposal.

The Arctic expedition company Adventure Canada has launched a new loyalty program, called League of Adventurers, to encourage repeat travel and celebrate its avid expeditioners. Repeat guests, and there are many, were recognized on an Ireland circumnavigation cruise. First-time guests are automatically entered into the loyalty program at the Adventurer level. Members booking their second to fifth expeditions gain Voyager status, which comes with a five per cent discount on future bookings, while members with six or more sailings achieve Explorer status, with benefits including a 10 per cent discount. Expeditions sailed within the last 30 years qualify for the League program; however, benefits only apply to 2019 bookings and onwards. adventurecanada.com
