oday’s Traveller, in association with Destination Canada, recently hosted a Luxury Summit at Le Meridien, New Delhi, to highlight newer and richer luxury experiences in Sports, Outdoors, Spa and Wellness holidays
In today’s fast-paced world, luxury translates into spending quality time on activities that give pleasure and joy…. activities that provide best in-class experiences. With the objective of discovering the best in Sports, Outdoors, Spa
and Wellness holidays, Today’s Traveller conceptualised a Luxury Summit with a special focus on Canada. The idea was to discover a healthier body and mind through travel and new luxury experiences centring around what Canada has to offer.
The purpose of the Luxury Summit was two-fold. The first was to examine luxury trends in Sports and Outdoors — from Dog-sledding to Northern Lights and Angling to Rail and Road journeys. The second was Spa and Wellness Tourism. In addition, the Luxury Summit highlighted newer experiences like Cruising and enjoying Natural Springs in the Rockies.
