Hot Fun in the Summertime

When the latest newsletter from our wellness travel partner Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort came across our desks, it brought such a big smile to our faces. Summer is the season of freedom and fun of this we are certain – especially for families. Read on for a peek into Nimmo Bay’s idea of hot fun in the summertime.

Summer Family Fun

We’re deep into the summer and we couldn’t possibly be having any more fun! Our trip planning for friends and family is in full swing and we’ve got activities that will spark curiosity and adventure at any age!

Oceanside Smores

We’ve invented a new activity that we like to call the Smore-Kel; an outrageously genius combination of smores and snorkelling. There’s no more iconic Canadian summer dessert than the smore and one of Nimmo Bay’s all-time favourite activities is the cold-water ocean snorkel. So why not create an epic experience that combines them both?!

Jump in for a swim and discover the incredible world that lives below the surface of the water. Then take a break on our floating picnic table and have a contest to see who can toast the perfect marshmallow for the ideal melty smore.

Paddling Adventures

There’s a reason that paddle boarding has become so popular; it’s an easy to pick up and learn activity for the whole family. Hop on, start on your knees while you get your balance, and get unparalleled access exploring inlets and coves. Go for an early morning paddle when the water is like glass reflecting the misty trees across its surface or go out during the heat of the day to cool-off (we encourage jumping in!).

Facial Bliss

One of our most recent wellness offerings is a family friendly facial! Bring your mini in for a true wellness treat that you can experience together. Lay side by side as you get pampered with a carefully curated selection of products inspired by British Columbia botanicals. This treatment is gentle and suitable for most skin types, and we’ll make sure that your mini is happy and comfortable the whole way through.

A Family Trip like No Other
