HALIFAX — Muir hotel has launched an extraordinary expedition inspired by the region’s raw, physical beauty and enduring character, transporting guests to one of the most secluded places in the world.
The five-day expedition includes exclusive access to people and places throughout Nova Scotia with luxury accommodations at Muir. From snow-covered wineries and historic forts to Sable Island National Park Reserve, an isolated island of sand-dunes, the world’s largest breeding colony of grey seals and more than 500 wild horses. One of Canada’s furthest offshore islands, access to Sable Island National Park Reserve is extremely limited with only a handful of tours permitted to visit each year.
The Muir has partnered with Kattuk Expeditions to offer three tours scheduled for January and February 2023. Fred Stillman, owner of Kattuk Expeditions, will personally lead the guests on a full-day tour of the island.
Stillman says, “300 kilometers off the coast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and at the edge of the continental shelf lies a lonely bar of sand shaped by wind and ocean currents. Far away from any modern amenities and services, in the exposed open Atlantic Ocean with the Gulf Stream and Labrador currents nearby, this is the wild of wild, so remote and extreme, yet positively beautiful and gentle. This expedition is for those who seek wild reality and remoteness, to be immersed in an environment that functions entirely on its own and to visit it with just a handful of others. It is a place unlike any other in the world.”
