Start Checking Off Your Summer Bucketlist with Breakaway Experiences + Giveaway! #travel
Summer is in full force and along with the sun and blue skies, everyone craves a little adventure. The best part is that there’s fun right in your city and beyond! One thing we love to do every summer is create a summer bucket list. One for us as a couple and another for the family and we try to check off as many as we can!
I’m a firm believer that if you’re gonna spend your hard-earned cash, you should spend it on experiences and memories–not things. Live in the moment, enjoy each other and most importantly be present.
This summer, with the help of Breakaway Experiences, you can do just that! They have all types of experiences for every type of person. From action, adventure, water sports, dining, golf, spa, tours and romantic experiences—-you’ll find something for everyone. You can find adventure in Alberta, Atlantic Canada, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan.
Take a Helicopter Tour!
Have you ever wanted to see some natural beauties of the world from up above. There is nothing more thrilling than lifting off on an adventure of a lifetime with a 20-minute helicopter tour over the breathtakingly Rockies or may you’ve always dreamed of learning to fly the actual helicopter.
How about seeing one of the world’s naturals wonders from a bird’s-eye view? From the sensation of lifting off, to the thrill of soaring above the turbulent rapids and cascading waterfalls, a Niagara Falls Helicopter Tour is a unique and spectacular experience.
Not only is it adventurous but, it can be pretty romantic seeing such a majestic sight with your loved one. If you go with your kids, they’ll be amazed and see the Falls in a way that they can’t see in history books!
Fun for All!
Riding a Segway is one of the most fun ways to see the sights. Whether it is a city tour or if you go off-road, one thing is for sure–you’ll have a ball. Taking the Horseshoe Valley Off Road Segway Adventure will begin with a 10-15 minute introduction and training on the Segway x2. After the training session, you will join two professional guides for a tear across a variety of terrains, inclines and conditions of Horseshoe Valley.
You can find more information about Segway Tours for family adventure in Toronto, Edmonton, Halifax.
Get Your Adrenaline Fix!
Spending the day on the water is simply alluring. Getting on a sea doo, smelling that fresh air and feeling that speed is any adrenaline junkie’s dream. If you’re in BC, hop on a sea doo and follow Vancouver Water Adventures’ skilled guides through English Bay and Howe Sound. This is the best way to get over to the islands for dinner.
Get Out There!
No matter what type of expedition you are craving, Breakaway Experiences can help you get your fix. If you want to give the gift of thrill, they have you covered too. I know that I will be surprising my Hubs with an adventure of our own and a helicopter ride over the Falls is looking mighty tempting. Count me in!
If you are looking to give a gift that is outside of the box and extraordinary, you’ll find experiences for him, her, couples, families and even relatives who are just visiting and new moms! Heck, there’s even experiences for large groups. They do say the more the merrier, right?
