As Canada slowly slips into the golden embrace of autumn with winter lurking around the corner, Abeona wishes to inspire you for the upcoming winter holidays, whether you’re seeking warmth or icy adventures. The Great White North is synonymous with snow and ice, which is why it offers fascinating winter destinations that cater to the most discerning jet-setters. On the other hand, there is the possibility of escaping winter in its entirety and exchange the Canadian snow for golden rays and turquoise waters.
In this article, Abeona will uncover two destinations that redefine your winter holiday – one offering warmth and endless beaches while the other is a prestigious haven for skiing and winter enthusiasts.
Your Sunny Winter Escape – The Caribbean
When you think of a winter getaway, the image of white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters, and warm, gentle breezes instantly comes to mind.
For those seeking an escape from the frigid Canadian winter, the Caribbean offers an unparalleled tropical paradise with an abundance of islands and islets to discover. Leave behind frosty temperatures and forget about those many layers of clothes.
Paradise on Earth
The Caribbean is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and year-round warm climate.
This region, comprised of numerous islands, each with its unique charm, offers visitors a harmonious blend of relaxation, adventure, and pristine tropical landscapes. Conveniently enough, our Canadian winter is one of the best times to visit the Caribbean. Abeona flies regularly to the Bahamas since our clients can't get enough of this Pearl of the Caribbean.
Luxurious Hotels or a Yacht Charter
High-end travellers can indulge in a wealth of luxury accommodations in the Caribbean, from beachfront resorts to private villas set amidst lush gardens and the sparkling sea at their doorstep.
The renowned Eden Rock St. Barths, perched on the rocky cliffs of Saint Barthélemy, epitomizes the definition of Caribbean luxury. This property offers opulent suites, a world-class spa, and gourmet dining, ensuring a lavish and rejuvenating stay.
For those seeking adventure, the Caribbean, especially the Bahamas, provides an array of activities, from snorkelling through coral reefs and shipwrecks teeming with marine life to deep-sea fishing for trophy catches.
The Caribbean is predestined for private yacht charters, enabling you to explore the hidden treasures of times long bygone while staying on a luxurious yacht. By chartering a private yacht, rest assured you’ll enjoy the most fantastic views that not even the best presidential suites all around the island can keep up with.
Furthermore, a yacht charter can often be more affordable compared to a one-week stay in a 5* resort if the costs for the charter are shared by the different parties. Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding a yacht charter in the Caribbean.
There is one more aspect that makes a winter holiday in the Caribbean quite desirable — the food.
Grab Those Omega-3s – Fresh & Exotic Seafood
The Caribbean is celebrated for its vibrant culinary scene, boasting an abundance of fresh seafood and exotic flavours. Local restaurants craft exceptional dishes featuring Caribbean spiny lobster, conch salad, and other ocean delights.
The Cliff at Cap Maison in St. Lucia is an acclaimed dining choice, providing breathtaking ocean views alongside its delectable cuisine.
To sum it up, the Caribbean transforms into an enchanting season of discovery and relaxation during the (Canadian) winter season, with all the amenities and comforts that Abeona’s high-end travellers desire.
Would you rather embrace the cold and look for some winter delight? After all, cozy knitwear and a hot cup of cocoa are something to look forward to, right? Abeona has got you covered with a winter wonderland not far from home.
Your Prestigious Skiing Haven – Whistler, British Columbia
For those who crave the exhilaration of carving through pristine powder on the world's most prestigious ski slopes, there is no place quite like Whistler, British Columbia.
Whistler has long held the title of North America's premier ski resort, and for good reason. The Whistler Blackcomb ski area offers an astounding 8,000 acres of skiable terrain, which includes over 200 marked runs, five terrain parks, and endless backcountry opportunities. The resort has consistently been ranked among the top ski destinations worldwide.
Luxury in the Snow
High-end travellers are spoilt for choice when it comes to luxury accommodations in Whistler. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a lavish resort offering ski-in/ski-out access and a world-class spa, allowing you to unwind in style after a day on the slopes. Another top choice is the Four Seasons Resort Whistler, which boasts a breathtaking alpine setting and top-notch amenities. The choice is yours.
In the winter season, Abeona can offer you flights to Vancouver from there we can directly fly you to Whistler, and there may even be an opportunity for jet sharing since many of our clients spend their winter holidays in Whistler.
Whistler's dining scene is as exhilarating as its slopes. After a day of skiing, indulge in exquisite dining experiences at Araxi Restaurant + Oyster Bar or Bearfoot Bistro. These renowned establishments offer a culinary journey that perfectly complements your high-end ski adventure.
Much More Than Skiing
While Whistler is best known for its exceptional skiing, it offers a variety of off-mountain experiences. Take a breathtaking ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, which connects Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, providing awe-inspiring views of the surrounding alpine landscape. For a more serene experience, explore the charming Whistler Village with its boutique shops and art galleries.
In Whistler, winter transforms into a high-end playground for skiing enthusiasts, offering unrivalled luxury in a picturesque alpine setting.
Aspen – The Epitome of A Skiing Trip
Aspen is a picturesque town located in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado, United States, and it is one of our clients favorite destinations for a ski-trip. It is renowned for its stunning natural beauty, world-class skiing slopes, and charming alpine ambiance.
Aspen is a popular winter destination for outdoor enthusiasts and winter sports aficionados. There are regularly jet-sharing opportunities for our flights to Aspen, and we would be happy to assist you in aligning your flying schedule with that of our other clients.
