24 Oct Anyone Up For A Luxury Round The World Ski Trip?
Luxury tour operator Scott Dunn has recently launched one of the most epic ski vacations one could ask for, and they’re ready for bookings. This once in a lifetime trip will combine all their knowledge to bring skiiers to the best spots possible during the best times of year for maximum powder. This is the kind of ski trip that will set a new standard in luxury, but do you have the time to take it?
This wondrous luxury ski vacation around the world will take just over thirty days and take you to places like Whistler, Zermatt, Niseko, Aspen and Iceland. Not only will you get the best mountain runs in, you’ll be pampered along the way with an itinerary that allows for some rest and relaxation. This honestly might be one of those vacations where you come back in better shape and weighing a bit less..there’s a lot of working out to be had.
The trip starts out in Zermatt, famed for the Matterhorn as well as fine dining and all things ski-town luxury. You’ll be here for four nights staying at the Schweizerhof which has recently been updated and upgraded. This is one of my favorite ski towns in all of the world and if you haven’t been here, add it to your bucket list…especially if you’re into skiing and snowboarding.
From here you’ll fly to Sapporo, Japan, for a five night stay in Niseko at the lovely AYA Niseko which is the finest ski-in ski-out accommodation in town. This place is a treat to come back to after a day on the slopes and everything you’d want and need is basically on site for you. The AYA Spa can help you unwind after skiing the day away, and there is also a great gym here in case you needed to workout more.
After Japan, you’ll be whisked off to Whistler, BC, and you’ll then be in our neck of the woods. You’ll enjoy the ride up to Whistler where you’ll stay at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler, my second favorite hotel in the country. Before heading out again you’ll head back to Vancouver for a couple days of relaxing, and then you gear up for a four night stay with Last Frontier Heliskiing and chance to experience BC powder at its finest.
Leaving BC, you’ll then head to Aspen for a five night ski adventure in which you’ll be staying at the world-famous The Little Nell 5-Star hotel. Aspen is one of those places where the skiing is great, but also the town itself is so much fun to explore and do adventures. There is also one helluva food scene here so you’ll no doubt have a blast during this part of the stay.
The world ski tour will end with a flight to Akureyri, Iceland for an epic heli-skiing on the Troll Peninsula. During your stay in Iceland you will be put up for four nights at Deplar Farm which isn’t anything like a farm you’re thinking about. This off the grid lodge is the perfect blend of luxury and comfort during your stay in this part of the world, and it’s not a bad way to end the world’s most epic ski vacation.
