This is the kind of trip I want to take one day. Who knows, I could end up hating it, but I'd love to find out on my own.
I was made aware of them through a downbound.com newsletter. Downbound.com is the site from which I obtained my first hemp wallet. Appears to be a business partnership.
...one of Downbound's many ethical offerings is handmade organic furniture made from sustainably harvested wood. We are honoured to announce that our beds have been exclusively chosen for the guests and staff at North America's first and only five star luxury eco spa and resort, Perfect Earth Tours.
Sounds nice! And where is this little slice of heaven?
The Perfect Earth Tours spa resort is located lakeside deep in the wilderness of the Canadian Yukon territory, a 35 minute private floatplane ride from Whitehorse, Yukon. The entire luxury resort is powered by solar, wind, water, and human power. It features an organic vegan spa with massage, body wrap, and facial services. All food and beverages are local and organic, including an impressive selection of organic wines. And while non-vegetarian meals are served, gourmet organic vegan meals are a standard option too, prepared by Perfect Earth Tour's internationally acclaimed chefs.
Now wait a minute...This sounds, and looks, suspiciously like...camping! And I hate camping! Or rather, camping hates me! What gives?!
The entire resort is made up of organic canvas luxury tents...
Ah-ha!! It IS camping!!
...Each guest tent is outfitted with all of the amenities you would expect from a five star resort, including a woodburning stove, a private solar heated shower room, and a private washroom with a state-of-the-art odourless composting toilet...And of course, what truly luxury vacation would be complete without solar and wind powered in-suite DVD players, satellite radio, and wireless internet connectivity?
Oh. That sounds, and looks, less like camping.
So does the cost; a cool $6250 or so for three nights, four days. And that's from Vancouver!
Maybe it's something to plan for as something special to do for my 40th birthday. I wonder if they accept weiner dogs?
