Luxury Vacations: Two luxurious British Columbia wilderness resorts are teaming up to offer an unusually special event: the "WickaNimmo" vacation. Stay at both Nimmo Bay Heli-Ventures's floating lodge in the Great Bear Rain Forest of BC's central coast and Tofino's fabled cliffside Wickaninnish Inn.
The $27,000 price tag is steep, but you get a whole lot of adventure for the price. The six-night getaway is a luxurious combination of the great outdoors and sumptuous hospitality. Begin the trip with a private Jet Ranger or A-Star helicopter hop from Port Hardy to the Nimmo Bay Resort, tucked into a picturesque inlet off the Broughton Archipelago. Creative cuisine, perfect pillows and waterfall hot tubs await, while you can spend the days in the great outdoors, following whales, fly-fishing and more.
The next leg of the trip lets you relax at "the Wick" on Vancouver Island, stay three nights in the spacious Chesterman Beach Loft Suite. The special package includes a private tour of the inn's collection of local art, an accompanied visit to meet the artisans, locally-sourced cuisine with sommelier-selected pairings, massages at Ancient Cedars Spa.
