Toronto (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
Butterfield & Robinson, a world leader in luxury travel, has launched two new trips close to its headquarters in Toronto. Urban biking in Toronto combined with easy riding through the vineyards of the Niagara region is the perfect trip for corporate and private groups. Alternately, get a taste of both Ontario and Québec with a trip that explores Ottawa, the nation’s capital, and historic Montréal.
Toronto and Niagara Biking – 5 days; custom quote
Begin your Ontario experience in one of Toronto’s new five-star hotels: the Shangri-La, Trump International Hotel & Tower, the Ritz-Carleton or the Four Seasons. Bike through Toronto’s eclectic neighbourhoods, visit highlights such as Frank Gehry’s Staircase at the Art Gallery of Ontario or if quieter biking is your speed, pedal the bike paths of the Toronto Islands before enjoying dinner in one of Toronto’s many excellent restaurants. In Niagara, bike along the vineyards and enjoy tastings with renowned vintners and exclusive dinners with wine-pairings at local wineries.
"The variety and quality of wineries in the Niagara region were a revelation to us,” said Susan of Chicago, B&R Niagara Biking 2011. “The beautiful countryside and abundance of great restaurants and shops made it a perfect place for biking and exploring, and, of course, enjoying wine."
Private Ottawa and Montréal Urban Biking – 5 days from US$2,500 per person
Ottawa, located on the borders of Ontario and Québec, is one of the most bike-friendly capitals in the world. Cycle along picturesque bike paths, straight from the door of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. Tour the Parliament Buildings or see what is playing at the National Arts Centre. Sample local produce and charcuterie at the Byward Market, and opt for a cooking class with a local chef. En route to Montréal, take a more challenging ride through the Laurentian Hills or save your energy for riding through the historic streets of Montréal, followed by a gourmet meal and quality service at the Le St James hotel in Old Montréal.
